Samsung Galaxy A5 and A7 (2016)

Samsung Release New Videos Showing Off New Galaxy A Series

April 21, 2016 - Written By Tom Dawson

When Samsung first released the Galaxy Alpha back in 2014, it represented a shift towards better materials used in their smartphones, but since then of course, Samsung has used premium materials in all of their main devices. The Galaxy Alpha soon morphed into the Galaxy A line, a series of devices representing a compromise between high-end performance and high-end looks. There’s a new line of Galaxy A devices for 2016, and Samsung has recently released a trio of new videos showing off what the devices are capable of.

These are short, 16-second long videos, but they get across the point fairly well, if not in a little strange manner. Each video has a different title, Design, Camera and Samsung Pay. That last title is perhaps more important than people will at first realize, because it marks one of the few devices outside of the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note range of devices, which should help open the service up to more people. As for the camera, it might not be a Galaxy S7 camera, but with an f/1.9 aperture it should capture plenty of light and offer a decent experience overall. Meanwhile, the design of the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 is comprised of glass and metal, something that fans of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 design will be happy to see. Where specs are concerned the Galaxy A series for 2016 feature Super AMOLED displays as well as Snapdragon processors and some expandable storage options. They’re nothing too amazing, but then again these are decent to mid-range devices with high-end looks. Available in three different sizes, the Galaxy A3 has a 4.7-inch display, while the Galaxy A5 is a 5.2-inch display and the Galaxy A7 has a 5.5-inch display.

The three videos are embedded below to take a look at and while this new range of Galaxy A devices aren’t available everywhere, they’re available in parts of Europe as well as parts of South East Asia as well. If you’re interested in getting your hands on one, then you’re best bet is to take a look at your local Samsung website to see if these devices are available where you are.
