Description

Back in October 2014, Samsung has introduced the new Galaxy A line-up which consists of mid-range smartphones with a metal body. Galaxy A3 was one of them and it was released on the market in December the same year.

Samsung Galaxy A3 is 130.1 mm tall, 65.5 mm wide, and only 6.9 mm thin, while weighing in at 110 grams. The smartphone features a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels and a pixel density of about 245 ppi. The device is running Android 4.4.4 KitKat out of the box with Samsung’s TouchWiz interface on top of it and it’s upgradable to Android 5.0 Lollipop.

The metal-made phone is underpinned by a Qualcomm MSM8916 Snapdragon 410 chipset based on four Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.2 GHz and an Adreno 306 GPU. It also integrates 1.5 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, microSD support up to 64 GB and a 1,900 mAh battery.

On the back of the Galaxy A3 there’s an 8 MP primary camera with autofocus, LED flash, geo-tagging, touch focus, panorama, and Full HD video recording support, while the front panel accommodates a 5 MP sensor. The connectivity features include WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy, NFC, and microUSB 2.0.
