Leaked renders of Samsung Galaxy A5 point to an imminent launch

We saw Samsung's upcoming Galaxy A5 in leaked images yesterday, and today a few more images of the device have surfaced online, this time in the form of press renders. From the images, it is clear that Samsung is sticking to a similar design as the Galaxy Alpha.

Samsung is seeking to launch a full lineup of smartphones that feature premium materials, and to that effect the South Korean vendor will launch the Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and the Galaxy A7 later this year. Leaked pricing of the devices suggests that Samsung is looking to target the mid-tier segment, with the Galaxy A series handsets will be priced between $350 and $500.

As for the specs, the Galaxy A5 is rumored to come with a 5-inch HD display (making it larger in size to the Galaxy Alpha), Snapdragon 400 CPU, 13 MP camera, 5 MP front facing shooter, 16 GB storage, 2 GB RAM and a 2,300 mAh battery along with Android 4.4 KitKat.

As for an official debut, Samsung is believed to launch these devices in the near future. Are you guys more interested in Samsung's metal-clad devices than the standard mid-tier Galaxy offerings?

  • Samsung= something for everyone! Posted via Android Central App
  • So as Sammy fan's choice is high specs or high build quality? Kind of a joke Posted via the Android Central App
  • Isn't the Note 4 both?
  • hmm nope
  • Nobody can take you seriously with that pic... Posted via the Android Central App
  • I totally agree with you. I think the Galaxy A-series is their best looking devices yet.
  • High quality materials housing low grade internals. What a joke. I like the feel of the alpha but with Samsung's bloatware their devices need all the horse power they can get to run anywhere near smoothly. I like Samsung's devices I currently use a note 3 and with all its ram it still suffers from lag every now and then. A nice feeling device that has a poor user experience is not the way forward. I hope the note4 is as nice as the alpha cos that's the one I'm looking to get. Posted via Android Central App
  • "High quality materials housing low grade internals." Samsung uses crap materials, everyone complains, Samsung tries to use better materials, everyone complains. Samsung software is not good I agree, but fixing the hardware is a positive, its better to at least have good hardware and subpar software then having subpar software and subpar hardware.
  • everyone complain because this is what the s5 should have been. i mean put the s5 internal in this metal housing and then we are talking right now i see no point of this devices quality housing, crap internals.
  • S5 internals in metal housing= galaxy alpha. Except screen res and camera, which is not big deal at 4.7 inches
  • S6
  • I would have to say its more mid range then low. And maybe Samsung will tune down touchwiz for these phones so they run faster. And hopefully its not running tizen lol
  • why couldn't Samsung put the s5 internals in one of these beauty's? it would have sell like hot cake, more than they have for sure.

  • Agree with everyone here, don't see where these fit in really. The Alpha is a good idea, there to compete with the iPhone6 only. If they wanted to target those who buy mostly on looks, they need to still deliver a good platform. Even an S600 chip would be more competitive. I bet this will come in at least 2.5 times the price of a Moto G but not perform any better. I swear Sammy must use a random parts generator to come up with new models. I wonder if its an app we could download ourselves? :)
  • lol. I don't even know what to do anymore, it is so hard to keep up. What, are there like 17 different models out there? No wonder they are taking such a loss, inventory management must be a nightmare. Posted via Android Central App
  • What the hell is this thing..Samsung you look so confused and scared about Apple and other awesome android phones from htc, Sony and moto. Need to step up your have big time especially on software.
  • In this comment section: THIS IS WHAT THE S5 SHOULD HAVE BEEN! People are never happy Posted via the Android Central App
  • I don't know if it's just me but it looked similar to some galaxy series, just different material for the case Posted via Android Central App
  • Samsung is getting too confusing with these phones. Have they ever read the book Paradox of Choice? I am loyal Samsung customer but I don't want to be forced into getting a degree in Samsung just to sort out what phones do what. Too many choices equal lower sales for companies, consumers become indecisive and won't buy because they can't figure out which one. I was torn between the Note4 and Note Edge when they unveiled both. I did not jump on the Note 4 because I want to see the Edge and hold it to compare them. The Edge won't come out until later this fall so 1 less Note4 sold this quarter because I want to wait to choose. Paradox of Choice! Posted via Android Central App
  • People stop living in the past, the S5 is like 6 months old now. I like this direction Samsung is going, gives me a lot of hope for the S6 to be a true beast.
  • Exactly Posted via Android Central App
  • Agree Posted via Android Central App
  • Looks almost like an iPhone 5
  • Shape is similar but this dwarfs the 5S.
  • Wow people! How is this confusing? Samsung is offering something for every taste. Note 4 for heavy multitasking, S5 for complete untra-reliable powerful functionality and the Alpha series for the all encompassing minimalist. What's the problem people? Explain in complete non emotional detail please. Posted via Android Central App
  • Google "Paradox of Choice" you will find a TED talk on YouTube by Barry Swartz. It will explain what people are complaining about. Posted via Android Central App
  • I love Ted Talk. I watched that video. Excellent explanation. Marketing is a science and so is persuasion and influence. The one principal of influence that Samsung does not have on their side is scarcity. On the other hand they are able to take advantage of something called conspicuous consumption. Samsung is selling lots of products to people who really don't need a shiny new gadget. Posted via Android Central App
  • I'll solve your problem Sammy. Make your premium high end uni-body like these devices. When the S6 comes out this should be your design and keep the S6 active plastic. So that our only choice is a premium uni-body design with high end hardware (S6) or a plastic design that retains the replaceable battery and it's waterproof certification(S6 active).
