Samsung has launched its new Galaxy A trio of smartphones here in the Philippines and, we tell you, each one has the innards and the looks that get a thumbs up from us! To give you a better idea, each smartphone has at least four processor cores, has 4G connectivity, and is thinner than 7mm. Yowzah!
But enough with the teasin', here they are!
Samsung Galaxy A7
This right here is the most well-endowed of the bunch, boasting of no less than eight processor cores and 2GB of RAM. And, at only 6.3mm thick, it's the slimmest phone that has rolled out of Sammy's factories so far!
Hardware highlights: 5.5-inch Full-HD touchscreen, Samsung Exynos octa-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, 12-megapixel main camera with autofocus, 5-megapixel front camera, Android KitKat, 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, dual-SIM
Yours for: P24,990
Samsung Galaxy A5
If the Galaxy A7's too thin or too wallet-busting for you, then maybe the quad-core packin' Galaxy A5 is more to your liking. At 6.7mm it's got a bit more heft, but will still slip into your jeans pocket as if it's not there.
Hardware highlights: 5-inch HD touchscreen, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, 13 megapixel main camera with autofocus, 5-megapixel front camera, Android KitKat, 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
Yours for: P19,990
Samsung Galaxy A3
Last and cheapest of the slim trio is the 6.9mm thick Galaxy A3. It's not as packed as its bigger, more expensive bros, but at least your wallet won't suffer as much. And it's not as if it sucks in the hardware department, as you will see below.
Hardware highlights: 4.5-inch touchscreen, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, 8-megapixel main camera with autofocus, 5-megapixel front camera, Android KitKat, 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
Yours for: P16,990
