New generation Samsung A7 and A5 launched with OIS and F1.9 lenses
Samsung has today officially launched a new generation of its A-series smartphones, and although the new devices range below the high-end Galaxy S and Note models in the Samsung line-up, they come with promising-looking specifications - especially in the camera department.
Both the 5.5-inch A7 and the 5.2-inch A5 come with a 13MP camera module that incorporates optical image stabilization and, like the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge, a fast F1.9 lens. At the front there is a 5MP sensor that is also combined with an F1.9 lens.
Camera aside, the larger A7 comes with a 1080p resolution on the AMOLED screen, metal housing and fingerprint reader for added security on the back. The Android 5.1 operating system is powered by a 1.6GHz octa-core processor and 3GB of RAM. There are 16GB of built-in storage that can be expanded via a microSD-slot and juice is provided by a 3,300mAh battery.
The A5 comes with a very similar technical specification, but in addition to the smaller screen has to make do with a smaller 2,900mAh battery and 2GB of RAM. There's also an A3 model with 4.7-inch screen that comes with all-around lower specs and lacks optical image stabilization. The new models will first be available in China this month and early next year in other parts of the world. Unfortunately, no information on pricing has been released yet.
