After the launch of Samsung Galaxy Alpha, there have been several rumors and leaks about the next three upcoming Samsung Galaxy ‘A’ series phones featuring a metallic frame– Galaxy A3, A5 and A7. Now a retailer from Kazakhstan ‘Technodom’ has listed the Samsung Galaxy A5 in its catalog before its official unveiling, revealing its price and specifications.
The listing was spotted by a Russian site hi-tech.mail. As per the catalog, the dual-SIM version will be dubbed as Samsung Galaxy A5 Duos LTE (SM-A500) and it appears to be a pricey handset costing KZT 99,990 in Kazakhstan, which translates to about $552 or €435. According to earlier reports the Galaxy A5 was supposed to cost between $400 and $450.
Specs include a 5-inch Super AMOLED HD display with 720p resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset with a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory with a microSD card slot for memory expansion. There will be a 13MP main camera with LED flash, a 5MP front-facing camera and a 2,330 mAh battery on board. The phone supports NFC and 4G LTE and will run Android 4.4.4 KitKat out of the box.
Of course, the handset has a metal frame and a great appearance and feel, so it may justify the high price. It measures 139.9 x 69.7 x 6.7mm and weighs 123 grams. Official-looking renders of the Galaxy A5 have appeared earlier and we have also spotted the Galaxy A3 and A5 duo on a video.
Samsung has not yet announced the date when it will be unveiling the trio of Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 smartphones. The catalog is valid up to November 11 so we can expect the company make an announcement before then.
