Description

The compact Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) sports a 4.7" HD display (up from a 4.5" one), and runs on a quad-core SoC under the hood, clocked at 1.5 GHz, and paired with 1.5 GB of RAM. The camera is now 13 MP camera, compared to 8 MP in the first A3, while the 5MP snapper at the front stays the same. The battery pack has been given a boost here as well, though, to 2300 mAh from 1900 mAh.
