Samsung launched the Samsung Galaxy A5, one of the slimmest smartphones in its lineup to date, in China last month. We weren’t sure when it would be available in Europe, as Samsung said that it was having production issues with the handset. It seems the Korean tech giant has resolved its production issues, as the device has landed in Russia.
The news comes to courtesy of Russian-speaking Hi-tech. According to the site, Samsung has started selling the Galaxy A5 in Russian stores and is asking a little bit over £280 for the device. This is almost £13 more than what it is asking buyers in China.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Galaxy A5, aside from being one of the two slimmest smartphones in Samsung’s lineup, it sports a 5-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 16 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 64-bit quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, and a 2300 mAh non-replacable battery.
According to the site, the Galaxy A3, the other slimmest smartphone in Samsung’s lineup, will also be sold in Russia in the near future. It will cost a little bit over £200 in the country.
Other markets across Europe is also expected to sell the A5 and A3 soon.
Another member of the Galaxy A series to look forward to is the Galaxy A7, which is the biggest of the three sporting a 5.5-inch screen.
