Leaked photos allegedly show Samsung Galaxy A3 and A5 2015 Editions

The Samsung Galaxy A3 (SM-A300) and the Samsung Galaxy A5 (SM-A500) were launched last year. So you must be wondering when Samsung is planning to reveal their successors. Recently, we came across leaks involving their successors. Now, the Galaxy A3 and A5 2015 Editions have allegedly been leaked in new photos.

Twitter account S_leak is responsible for leaking the photos shown above. They allegedly show the actual Galaxy A3 2015 Edition (SM-A310) and Galaxy A5 2015 Edition (SM-A510). If these are the actual photos of the two, we can see a few differences in design compared to their predecessors, including the speaker grill at the bottom, and the camera/LED flash shape and positioning. Furthermore, it looks like the two feature a different material on the back, presumably glass. The Galaxy A3 and A5 make use matte metal.

The Galaxy A3 2015 Edition and the Galaxy A5 2015 Edition have gone through tests on the GFXBench benchmark database (1 & 2).

Starting with the Galaxy A3 2015 Edition, it features a 4.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (Full HD). 16 GB of internal storage will be on board. Under the hood is an Exynos 7580 SoC, which is a quad-core processor with each core clocked at 1.5 GHz with a a Mali-T720 GPU, coupled with 1.5 GB of RAM. Its camera combo consists of a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy A5 2015 Edition features a 5.2-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (Full HD). 16 GB of internal storage will be on board. Under the hood is an Exynos 7 Octa octa-core processor with cores clocked as much as 1.6 GHz, coupled with 2 GB of RAM. Its camera combo consists of a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat.

Various manufacturers are busy working on pushing out the Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) update to their devices. The two are shown running Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop). Does this mean the two will run the latest version of Android upon launch? We doubt it. It’s likely that the two will run Lollipop out of the box.

Going back to the photos, it’s likely that the two will come with fingerprint scanners integrated into their home buttons. This would mean that the two could support Samsung Pay – the Korean tech giant’s mobile payment service.
