Samsung has an expansive portfolio of mobile devices already, and it looks like the South Korean tech giant is about to make it bigger once more. Samsung has recently announced its latest addition to its A Series: Galaxy A7, A5 and A3. All three handsets feature OIS cameras, fingerprint sensors and also support for the Samsung Pay magnetic strip cards. The new lineup will be launched in China this December, with later regions following suit.
The new Samsung Galaxy A7 is the biggest of the three. It features a 5.5-inch super AMOLED screen with full HD resolution, as well as an octa-core chipset with 3 GB of RAM. It also now comes with a much narrower form factor than its predecessor, and its body is constructed with solid metal and glass. For improvements, the new Samsung Galaxy A7 now features a bigger 3,300 mAh fast charging battery. Its 13 MP primary camera also features a wider aperture, and there's OIS in tow as well. Samsung has also equipped it with a fingerprint reader and the magnetic secure transmission, and it can even deliver Cat. 6 speeds with its new LTE chipset.
The new Samsung Galaxy A5 features a 5.2-inch super AMOLED display with full HD resolution, which makes it a huge step up from the previous A5 that only came with a 5-inch HD panel. It's also equipped with an octa-core chipset, but memory and internal storage remain at 2 GB and 16 GB, respectively. As for the battery life, it now comes with 2,900 mAh of juice to make it last longer than its predecessor. It also uses the same camera setup as the A7, and a finderprint reader and Samsung Pay are both featured as well.
