Galaxy A5

Samsung has commenced selling the Galaxy A5 in China. Consumers in the region will be able to pick up the new smartphone from Samsung's official store for 2,599 CNY (around $420). The manufacturer announced the new Galaxy A5 alongside the A3 back in October, offering new metal unibody experiences aimed at a younger audience.

China was highlighted as a launch market, but we can expect to see the A5 and A3 hitting other regions in due course. For 2,599 CNY, consumers can pick up a new KitKat-powered smartphone with a 5-inch 1280x720 Super AMOLED display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and a 2300mAh battery.

It's worth noting that the Samsung store in China appears to only have the white variant available.
