The newly announced Samsung Galaxy A series is making its way to Malaysia as both Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 have been spotted in our local SIRIM database. The Galaxy A series is supposedly the youthful successor of its premium Galaxy Alpha with its slim design and metal body. Since it is targeted for the younger crowd, the Galaxy A series is likely to carry a more affordable price tag.

Both models will be running on a newer 1.2GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 410 processor which supports 4G LTE. The Galaxy A5 being the higher spec device gets a a 5″ HD 720p Super AMOLED display and it comes with 2GB of RAM and a 13MP camera. Meanwhile the smaller Galaxy A3 is a notch below with a 4.5″ display doing qHD (960×540) resolution, 1GB RAM and it settles for a 8MP main shooter.

Both Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 comes with 16GB of storage and it can be further extended via microSD slot, which was lacking on the Galaxy Alpha. For better selfies, the duo also comes with a 5MP front camera that supports wide selfie mode. Overall, the Galaxy A3 is quite slim at 6.9mm while the Galaxy A5 is even thinner at 6.7mm.
