The screen size of the A3 is 4.5″, A5, 5.0″ and the A7 5.5″. The A5 and A7 features a higher 13 megapixel rear camera while the A3 has an eight megapixel rear camera. Battery capacity increases with the models as well.
The Samsung Galaxy A series spots the first full metal uni-body casing and is also ultra slim. Some may find it too slim for comfort, but hey, they fit snugly into your back pocket, if size matters to you.
Your New Selfie Smartphone
A key feature that stands out from Samsung’s other smartphone models is the 5 megapixel front camera that takes better and clearer photos. You can now choose a variety of selfie options before you snap your photo in high resolution. It automatically detects and focuses on your face with modes such as the Wide Selfie, Palm Selfie, Animated Selfie, Beauty Face or Voice Selfie.
The Voice selfie feature lets you capture your perfect selfie using your voice while the Animated Selfie takes up to 20 pictures continuously and stitches them into a collage of animated GIFs.
The A7 also supports dual SIM supporting LTE Category 4 on the primary SIM and 2G on the secondary SIM.
At launch, the Galaxy A Series comes with merchant deals including: free GALAXY Life sticky candy and scoop of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream for the first 500 GALAXY A users, 1-for-1 K Box singing session and 10% off regular priced items at MDS Collections.
