Samsung’s 2016 Galaxy A Series set for a January release in the UAE

Samsung has announced the launch of the latest Galaxy A smartphones that combine premium design and enhanced camera features.

The Galaxy A is backed by powerful performance and available in three screen sizes: the 5.5-inch  A7, the 5.2-inch A5 and 4.7-inch A3. Full specs of all three models can be found below.

“At Samsung, we are committed to continued innovation, responding to the unique needs of consumers in the GCC,” said Tarek Al Sabbagh, Head of Imaging and Mobility at Samsung Gulf Electronics. “With the introduction of the latest generation of the Galaxy A, we were inspired by consumer feedback on our original Galaxy A models and made thoughtful and impactful improvements offering consumers a seamless convergence of style and performance for their everyday lifestyles.”

The Galaxy A continues the latest Samsung Galaxy design heritage, combining metal and glass to create a beautifully harmonious premium design. The new Galaxy A provides a superior viewing experience with a large screen and thin 2.7mm bezel.

The Galaxy A also comes equipped with an enhanced camera system for both brighter and clearer photos and videos, with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) preventing image blurring, as well as a 5MP front and 13MP rear F1.9 lens.

The Galaxy A7, A5 and A3 will first be available in Black, Gold, Pink Gold and White color schemes. The devices are now available in global markets, and will be available at all major retailers in the UAE in the first week of January 2016.
