Samsung Electronics today unveiled the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3, offering a sleek, high fashion design and advanced functions that make social networking easy.

“The Galaxy A5 and A3 offer a beautifully crafted full metal unibody, slim design, superior hardware and the best possible social media experience,” said JK Shin, CEO and Head of IT & Mobile Communication at Samsung Electronics. “These devices make our advanced Galaxy experience even more accessible to young and trend conscious consumers.”

An Ultra Slim, Full Metal Design
The Galaxy A5 and A3 are Samsung’s slimmest smartphones to date, featuring refined full metal unibody designs (6.7 mm and 6.9 mm thin, respectively). Both devices will come in a variety of colours, including Pearl White, Midnight Black, Platinum Silver, Soft Pink, Light Blue and Champagne Gold, allowing users to select a colour that complements their own personal style.

The Ultimate Selfie Camera
The Galaxy A5 and A3 devices have an advanced 5MP front-facing camera, meaning capturing that perfect selfie is easier than ever before. Innovative photo-taking features, such as Wide Selfie, Palm Selfie, Animated GIF, Beauty Face Features, and Rear-cam Selfie, let users capture the best selfies possible in high resolution by automatically detecting and focusing on a person’s face. Users are also able to quickly and easily share photos or videos on their favourite social media channels with the device’s fast network speed of LTE Category 4 standard.

Vivid Display and Powerful Processor
The Galaxy A5 and A3 blend practicality and functionality with both devices coming equipped with an extraordinary Super AMOLED display and Adaptive Display technology to deliver clearer images with deep contrast and better viewing angles for more vivid, colourful content in virtually any environment, even under bright sunlight.

The Galaxy A5 and A3 also feature a Quad Core 1.2 GHz processor for seamless multi-tasking and a faster browsing experience. In addition, the Galaxy A5 and A3 include popular features exclusive to Galaxy devices, such as Ultra-Power Saving Mode, Private Mode and Multiscreen, as well as adjustable audio which intelligently adapts and enhances sound output based on the user’s surrounding environment.

The Galaxy A5 and A3 will be available in select markets including China starting in November 2014. Samsung UK will announce UK availability of both products in due course.
