Samsung's anticipated Galaxy A series
has been long rumoured, and now, after the alleged Galaxy A3 was spotted as the Samsung SM-A3000 at Tenaa
certification last week with specifications, it now features images of the handset.
The Samsung SM-A3000 images of the white colour SM-A3000 (anticipated Galaxy A3) are very similar to the SM-A5000 (anticipated Galaxy A5) that was listed earlier on Tenaa.
The anticipated Samsung Galaxy A5 has also been leaked in purported live images by Sammobile, when it reported that the device is using "some unique material in order to keep the device's cost down while still maintaining a somewhat premium feel" with which the device's body "feels cold in the hand" but apparently isn't made of metal or plastic.
Specifications on the Tenaa listing of the Samsung SM-A3000 include Android 4.4.4 KitKat; a 4.5-inch OLED qHD (540x960 pixels) display; 1GB of RAM; 8GB inbuilt storage; expandable storage support up to 64GB (via microSD card); an 8-megapixel rear camera; a 5-megapixel front camera; weight of 112 grams, and dimensions of 130.1x65.5x6.9mm.
Last week, a report also tipped the pricing for the yet-to-be-announced Galaxy A-series smartphones, claiming the Galaxy A3 will likely include LTE support and be priced between $350 (roughly Rs. 21,000) and $400 (roughly Rs. 24,500), while the alleged Galaxy A5 was said to be priced between $400 (roughly Rs. 24,500) to $450 (roughly Rs. 27,500), and the Galaxy A7 between $450 (Rs. 24,500) and $500 (roughly Rs. 30,500).
Additionally, the report along with tipped prices claimed that the rumoured Galaxy A7 will only be available in limited countries, unlike the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5.
