Second-generation Samsung Galaxy A5 is certified by TENAA

Second-generation Samsung Galaxy A5 is certified by TENAA
We've seen the FCC in the U.S. certify the second-generation Samsung Galaxy A3, the second-generation Samsung Galaxy A5 and the second-gen Samsung Galaxy A7. In China, the country's equivalent to the FCC, TENAA, has cleared the second-generation Samsung Galaxy A7. Today, TENAA has added the Galaxy A5 sequel to its list of certified phones.

The second-generation Samsung Galaxy A5 features a 5.2-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. An octa-core  1.7GHz CPU drives the device. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB of native storage.  A 128GB capacity microSD slot is available for those requiring more memory.

The rear-facing camera will be either 8MP or 13MP, with a 5MP front-facing camera to snap selfies and handle video chats. The phone measures a thin 6.9mm and weighs 145 grams. According to TENAA, the phone is available in a "Golden" color and comes with Android 5.1.1 pre-installed. The model number, for those who care about such things, is SM-A5100.

We could see Samsung introducing some, or all, of the second-generation Galaxy A series soon.

Thanks for the tip!
