Samsung Upgrades Galaxy A5 to … the A5 2016 in Black, Gold & White

Samsung’s New Galaxy A5 2016

Black edition Samsung Galaxy A5 2016

Samsung’s much loved A-Series which previously featured the Galaxy A3 and A5 in the UK has now had upgraded models added to its collection.

Unlike other model ranges like the S-Series (S4,5,6,7), the A-Series didn’t gain a new number though, instead consumers are left to search for the same A5 model name, albeit now with the moniker of 2016.

The Samsung Galaxy A5 2016 model is now available with both new contract and upgrade deals across multiple networks in white, gold and black colour schemes.

This new A5 2016 edition can now be ordered with O2, Vodafone, EE and iD Mobile deals for ‘new’ customers (those taking on a new number and those ‘porting’ their number) as well as on EE, Vodafone and O2 upgrade deals for those wanting to stay on their existing network with the same number.

How much are Galaxy A5 2016 deals?

Consumers not looking to part with any money upfront for their new Samsung A5 2016 can grab contract deals offering a free phone from £21 a month on O2, this includes 500 minutes of calls and 500MB of monthly data.

Vodafone ‘free phone’ tariffs start from £24 a month, EE deals are priced from £25.99 and finally iD Mobile (owned by Carphone Warehouse and operating on the Three network) offers the Galaxy A5 2016 from £29.50 per month.

How much to upgrade to the A5 2016?

Upgrade deals are more expensive than ‘new customer’ tariff prices, O2 customers can expect to part with an extra £3 a month for the privilege of staying with their existing mobile number, EE customers will need to fork out £28.49 whilst Vodafone deals are the most expensive at £34 a month.

What’s the difference between the A5 old and new?

The basics include a bigger and far better resolution display, a larger battery, faster processing, more advanced camera and an Android OS upgrade, but have a look at the main differences below:
