Galaxy A devices come equipped with a premium metal frame, a sleek 16-megapixel rear camera with built-in auto-focus and comes with the same calibre of IP68 water and dust resistance as Samsung’s flagship devices.
Under the hood, the A7 and A5 each pack a 1.9GHz Octa Core with 3GBs of RAM. Meanwhile, the A3 lands with slightly less processing power. Featuring a 1.6GHz Octa Core and 2GB.
The company say that the range will take the hassle out of the everyday, with support for Samsung Pay and a Fast-Charge ready USB-C charger.
Richard Fink, Vice President Mobile Division, Samsung Australia, says “The Galaxy A Series delivers key features that we know our customers love in a smartphone including an exceptional camera, water and dust resistance and a premium design, which are critical for both the Australian lifestyle and how people create and share memories on social media. At a mid-range price, the Galaxy A Series offers excellent value to our customers.”
