Samsung has released the Galaxy A Series – the company’s first new phone model to be introduced since the Note7 was discontinued – which offers impressive features at an affordable price.
There are two models in the Galaxy A Series – the A5 which has a 5.2-inch full high definition display and the A7 with a 5.7-inch FHD screen.
They will be available from February 16 and will be priced at $649 (Galaxy A5) and $799 (Galaxy A7) with millenials as the main target customers.
These devices are sure to put pressure on the other mid-tier and upper mid-tier devices that have been released by Chinese brands like Oppo and Huawei.
The Samsung Galaxy A Series devices have rounded edges and a slim design with a thickness of just 7.9mm.
These new smartphones are identical apart from their screen size and battery capacities.
Each model has a 16-megapixel camera on the front and back to capture great selfies and photos.
They are also water resistant with an IP68 rating.
Both devices have a 1.9Ghz octa-core processor with 3GB RAM and 32GB of onboard storage with a microSD card slot to expand the memory.
On the battery side, there is a 3000mAh battery aboard the A5 while the A7 has a 3,500mAh battery.
The Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 also has NFC (near field communication) and will also be compatible with Samsung Pay to make safe and secure payments if you are member of a participating bank.
