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.
