Samsung updates Galaxy A series with better cameras, water resistance


Samsung’s Galaxy A series of devices are a lineup of mid-range handsets, and today new models have debuted with some noteworthy changes.

There are three models in the Galaxy A lineup: the Galaxy A3, the Galaxy A5, and the Galaxy A7. The biggest distinction between the three are screen sizes, with the A3 packing in a 4.7-inch, 720p HD display, the A5 with a 5.2-inch 1080p HD display, and the Galaxy A7 with a 5.7-inch 1080p HD display.

Both the Galaxy A5 and A7 have the same 1.9GHz processor under the hood, while the A3 has a 1.6GHz processor. The two bigger siblings also have 32GB of built-in storage and 3GB of RAM. The A3, however, has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage. All three devices feature dust and water resistance as well as a USB Type-C port.

The other big new addition is the upgrade in cameras, with the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 now both featuring 16-megapixel cameras on the back and front. The two models also feature Samsung’s Fast Charge technology.

Finally, all three devices feature a glass-back, similar to the S7 lineup, as well as a physical home button below their displays that also serves as a fingerprint reader.

Samsung is launching all three devices in Russia this month, but it says it will land in other European countries at some point in the future. The company has not divulged pricing just yet.
