A new report has surfaced online tipping additional details about Samsung's anticipated 'A series' of smartphones - Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5, and Galaxy A7 - including the purported prices of the devices.
Sammobile claims that the three rumoured Galaxy A-series smartphones will come with LTE connectivity.
Notably, the rumoured Galaxy A3, which is likely to be the cheapest of the rumoured A series lineup, is said to also include LTE support and be priced between $350 and $400 (roughly Rs. 21,000-24,500). The rumoured Galaxy A5 is said to be priced between $400 to $450 (roughly Rs. 24,500-27,500) and the Galaxy A7 expected between $450 and $500 (roughly Rs. 24,500-30,500).
In addition to tipping prices of the anticipated Galaxy A series smartphones, the report also claims that the rumoured Galaxy A7 will only be available in limited countries, unlike the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5.
The report suggests that Samsung might limit the availability of the rumoured Galaxy A7 considering that it might affect the sales of the Galaxy Alpha, which is the South Korean giant's new premium handset.
Based on earlier leaks, we have seen the mid-range SM-A500 or Galaxy A5 leaked in purported live images. The handset is reportedly said to be using some unique material in order to keep the device's cost in control while still keeping a somewhat premium feel.
The rumoured SM-A500 is said to include a 5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) Super AMOLED display; a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor; a 5-megapixel front camera; a 13-megapixel rear camera; 16GB of inbuilt storage, and a 2330mAh battery.
The alleged Galaxy A3 on the other hand is likely to come with a 4.8-inch qHD (540x960 pixels) display; 1.4GHz 64-bit Snapdragon 410 SoC; 1GB of RAM; a 7-megapixel rear camera; a 4.7-megapixel front-facing camera; 8GB internal storage and Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
Speculation is not clear on whether Samsung will launch all 3 Galaxy A series smartphone before end of this year, though reports had claimed all three would be launched by the end of the third-quarter.
