Samsung saw a considerable amount of success with the first generation Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 handsets as they combined a robust build and respectable specifications in a relatively inexpensive package. It’s a combination that has proven to work and Samsung is continuing with it today with the launch of Galaxy A (2016), the second generation models of the Galaxy A3, A5 and A7.
Aside from the 4.7 inch, 5.2 inch and 5.5 inch display for the A3, A5 and A7 respectively, these handsets are fashioned out of metal and glass to create a “beautifully harmonious premium design.” There’s even a narrower bezel to provide an enhanced viewing experience.
All handsets feature an enhanced camera system that promises brighter and clearer pictures and videos, coupled with Optical Image Stabilization and a F.19 lens in the front and rear cameras. Double clicking the home button will instantly launch the camera.
It was expected that Samsung would expand its payment service to more handsets and that has proven to be true with the Galaxy A5 and A7 (2016). Both handsets support Samsung Pay and feature a fingerprint sensor for easy payment authentication, support for both MST and NFC payment technologies is onboard.
Samsung will initially release the Galaxy A (2016) lineup in China by mid-December 2015 before launching it in other markets across the globe.
