For devices that have been leaked so extensively in the last few weeks, it’s been surprising that Samsung hasn’t made the Galaxy A lineup – which consists of the Galaxy A3, A5, and A7 – official already. Our initial information that said the devices would go live in the third quarter didn’t turn out to be true; we were later told that the Galaxy A7 would launch in November, and now a report from the Korea IT Times is reaffirming that all three devices would be announced early next month, at least in China.
According to the report, Samsung will be taking aim at the market Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has captured in the country with low-priced, high-specced devices. The price range of the three devices is mentioned as being somewhere between $350 and $500, something we already revealed earlier this month. Those are not exactly prices that will be cause for Xiaomi to become worried, but the lure of better than average specs and a somewhat premium feel could help Samsung steal enough consumers away from the competition.
