Samsung revamps its Galaxy A series with three new handsets

A7, A5 and A3 coming to the UK next April.

Samsung has refreshed its Galaxy A product range with a trio of new handsets – the A7, A5 and A3.

Made from metal and glass, the phones combine premium style with varying specs depending on how big your wallet is.

The range-topping A7 comes with a solid specs sheet that lists a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, a 1.6GHz octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM and a 3,300mAh battery.

Sitting between its two siblings, the A5 packs a 5.2-inch Full HD screen, a 1.6GHz octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM and a 2,900mAh battery.

The A3 is the budget option, with a 4.7-inch 720p display, a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM and a 2,300mAh battery.

All three devices sport decent cameras – a 13-megapixel snapper on the rear and a 5-megapixel sensor for selfies – and offer something the flagship Galaxy S6 doesn’t in microSD support.

The A5 and A7 also offer mobile payments via Samsung Pay and their integrated fingerprint sensors, but they’ll ship with Android 5.1 Lollipop, rather than the latest Marshmallow software.

Samsung is bringing its new Galaxy A devices to the UK, but you’re in for a wait before you can snag one – they aren’t due here until April 2016.
