We’ve covered Samsung’s “A Series” pretty extensively before in terms of leaks and what to expect. We know that somehow – starting with the Samsung Galaxy Alpha – the South Korean gadget giant was out to prove naysayers wrong, that it can’t build a metal phone of note. Well, this is what we get for provoking Samsung – a whole new line of metallic phones, with the Samsung Galaxy A3 and A5 both slim enough to turn your heads.

As expected, we see that both phones are crafted out of a unibody metal design – hence the non-removable battery. The A3 has the smaller 4.5-inch qHD screen while the A5 will have a 5-inch HD display, both screens made from Samsung’s own Super AMOLED technology. Both will be sporting what seems to be Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processors clocking at 1.2Ghz, but the A3 will sadly be supported by only 1GB of RAM, while the A5 will have the standard 2GB.

Galaxy A5 specifications

– Android 4.4.x KitKat
– Processor: 1.2GHz Quad-Core
– Display: 5-inch HD Super AMOLED
– Size: 139.3 x 69.7 x 6.7mm
– Weight: 123g
– Battery: 2300 mAh
– 2GB RAM / 16GB internal storage
– microSD card slot
– 13 megapixel
– 5 megapixel front facing camera
– Bluetooth 4.0 / NFC / GPS

Samsung is hyping on the very slim design of the Galaxy A3 and A5, which at 6.7mm and 6.9mm respectively, seems to be the slimmest phones out of Samsung’s catalog to date. Both will have 16GB of internal storage and will surprisingly have microSD expansion slots, which was at some point rumored that those won’t be present. Surprise, surprise.

Lastly, Samsung is also trying to hype up the 5MP front facing camera, which is one of the more capable selfie cams around – though not up to HTC Desire EYE standards. Both will be LTE capable, confirming these rumors, and will be available in select markets worldwide starting in November – which is just around the corner.
