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?
