Samsung Galaxy A5 price, specification and release date


With the onset of 2015, Samsung have heavily started the Smartphone fabrication and this time it has taken on midrange Smartphone segment. Samsung has unveiled its two new Smartphone series which are Samsung Galaxy A Series (A5 and A3) and Galaxy E series (E5 and E7). The main difference between these two series is the presence of full metallic body in A series whiles as E series houses polycarbonate body. It evidently smells like Samsung is trying to deplete the clear cut line between mid range Smartphone’s and premium Smartphone’s because they have used intermixed hardware configuration in these Smartphone’s, a mid range Smartphone as a label to these newly arrived Smartphone’s seems somewhat incomplete. It clearly looks like this year Samsung will be making great efforts in Asian regions getting back their fallen stocks because of local manufacturers by creating a new class of sub-midrange Smartphone’s.

It comes factory stocked with Android v4.4.4 Kit Kat being the latest version so far, operating on o9perating on Snapdragon 410 Quad core processor clocked at 1.2GHz supported by 2GB RAM and Adreno 306 GPU. This hardware complexion is a new innovation from Samsung and it should really prove fruitful because the basic Quad core with 1.2GHz speed along with 2GB RAM can handle a lot of applications for sure with great effectiveness but the suspicion still remains that can a basic mid range processor provide full benefit of premium RAM without lags. Adreno 306 GPU is going to be put on good work with this processor to ensure lag free experience.  Furthermore this Smartphone houses a 13MP primary camera with some cool new features along with 5MP primary camera for selfie revolution.  It provides 16 GB onboard internal storage capacity with SD card compatibility of 64GB which is a good this in this range of Smartphone and quite Smartphone from Smartphone. This Smartphone is compatible with GSM, HSDPA and LTE networks and connectivity features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and NFC. Thus, being a good competitor to the current mid ranger with availability of LTE. It drains its power from 2300mAh Li-ion battery expected to give a full day of usage on 3G.

It’s clearly evident that most of the features in this Smartphone are premium which include 2GB RAM, 13MP + 5MP camera configuration and LTE compatibility however display, processing chipset and battery capacity is quite midrange style. This Smartphone is overall a good equipment of greatly intervened features made available at price range of Rs 25990. The pricing of this Smartphone is as good as you get and it’s definitely not going to distract the mid range market of locals providing these features with a bit compromises at very low rate. However it can be bought as a good quality premium Smartphone with good overall stable features at a premium price point.
