Samsung will launch the Galaxy A3 (2016) and Galaxy A5 (2016) in the UK on May 5


Last updated: May 3rd, 2016 at 13:49 UTC+02:00

Samsung has today revealed that it will launch the revamped variants of the metal-and-glass bodied Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 in the United Kingdom on Friday, May 5. Unfortunately, the manufacturer failed to provide any information with regards to pricing, but based on the details included in a premature listing, we expect the former to cost £269 and the latter to retail for £319.

As you’d expect, the Galaxy A3 (2016) and Galaxy A5 (2016) feature some newer hardware than their predecessors. This mostly comes in the form of a sturdier build, a more vivid Super AMOLED display, a beefier processor, a larger amount of RAM and a sharper camera. All of the changes, together with our thoughts on the handsets, can be read in our comprehensive reviews, which can be accessed by clicking the links below:
