At a time when Samsung’s next-iteration of Galaxy A lineup of devices is gaining traction across the globe, the price and release date of the A3, A5 and A7 pertaining to Europe have been revealed.
The Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 will reportedly be debuting in China sometime in the mid of December. European regions will be seeing the same handsets in January 2016. This will apparently be followed by a global roll out, Phone Arena reported.
As it turns out, Sam Mobile has the official price of the devices sourced from Samsung Benelux. The entry-level Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) will reportedly set the buyers back by 329 euros (about $359), whereas the mid-ranger Galaxy A5 (2016) will be available for 399 euros (about $435). The high-end Galaxy A7 price has not been revealed yet. However, Sam Mobile said that the device will retail for 469 euros in Europe, which roughly translates to $512.
When it comes to design, Phone Arena said the handsets come with rounded corners, unlike the respective predecessors. The South Korean tech giant has reportedly used a mix of metal and glass to get the premium look right. In a way, the devices resemble the outer look of the flagship Samsung Galaxy S6. To top it all off, Samsung will apparently be offering the handsets in three killer colors namely Pearl, Platinum and Sapphire.
This time around, the Galaxy A5 (2016) and Galaxy A7 (2016) have apparently been housed with a fingerprint scanner on the home button. However, as expected, the relatively inexpensive Galaxy A3 does not come with one.
The new Galaxy A lineup also supports Samsung Pay mobile payment system. According to Samsung Mobile Press, both “Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) and Near Filed Communication (NFC) technologies” are supported by the handsets.
