The Samsung Galaxy A3 passes TENAA certification, specs leak once again
When the Galaxy Alpha got launched, little did we know that Samsung is purportedly intending to make it the pioneering device in a new series of metal-clad mid-range Alpha-like smartphones. Consequently, details and pricing about the next additions to Samsung's new line, the Samsung A700, A500, and A300 leaked. It is expected that the will be named the Samsung Galaxy A7, Galaxy A5, and Galaxy A3, respectively. All of these will reportedly sport a metal rim, similar to the Galaxy Alpha and the recently-unveiled Galaxy Note 4.

The latter of these apparently just got certified by TENAA, China's certification agency. The alleged specifications of the device are as mid-range as it was initially speculated. The SoC of the device in question is a 1.2GHZ quad-core Snapdragon 410, paired with 1GB of RAM; its display will be 4.52-inch one, boasting a resolution of 540x960 pixels. The internal storage of the device will be no more or less than 8GB, but users will be able to put in an up to 64GB microSD card via the on-board slot (one of Samsung's “trademarks”). The rear shooter of the Galaxy A3 will be an 8MP one, whereas the front-facing selfie-producer is said to be a 5MP one. The dimensions of the whole shebang are said to be 130.1×65.5×6.9mm and will be tipping the scales at 112gr.

Apart from the regular Galaxy A300, some additional variations of the upcoming device have also made an appearance – SM-A3000, SM-A3009, SM-A300H, SM-A300F, SM-A300F/DS, SM-A300G, SM-A300G/DS, SM-A300F/DS, SM-A300G/DS, S-A300H/DS, and the SM-A300YZ. It is also expected that the Samsung Galaxy A3 will be fetching a $350-$400 price tag.

Note: The phone in the thumbnail image is the alleged Samsung Galaxy A5.

Yeah, it's a low-mid ranger, but price should be competitive.
