The Korean tech giant has lifted the lid on the Samsung Galaxy A5, currently the slimmest smartphone in the company’s lineup. The handset has launched the device in China and Taiwan, and is soon planning to launch the device in its home country of South Korea. According to a report, the A5 will be joined by two other devices, the long rumoured A7 and the Grand Max. Images of the device have also been leaked.
The images you see above come to us courtesy of SamMobile, a highly reliable source of information on anything Samsung-related. The images show the yet to be unveiled Galaxy A7, which we already know about, and the Galaxy Grand Max, which we’ve never really heard about until now.
According to the leak, the Samsung Galaxy Grand Max (SM-G720N0) sports a 5.2-inch HD TFT LCD screen, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 16 GB of internal storage, support for as much as 64 GB from a microSD card, LTE connectivity, a quad-core processor with each core clocked at 1.2 GHz, and 1.5 GB of RAM. It is 7.9 mm-thin and runs Android 4.4 (KitKat) out of the box.
Like we said earlier, we’ve already heard a lot about the A7 (SM-A700S, SM-A700K, and SM-A700L), but if you’ve been living under a rock, the smartphone sports a 5.2-inch Full HD Super AMOLED screen, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 16 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, LTE, VoLTE, DMB, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, an octa-core processor with each core clocked at 1.5 GHz (likely a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615), 2 GB of RAM, and a 2,500 mAh battery. It is 6.3 mm-thin and weighs in at 140 grams. It runs Android 4.4.4 (KiKat) out of the box.
We still don’t know when Samsung is planning to launch the A5 in the UK, but we’re hoping that when it does, it will also release the A7 and Grand Max on our shores.
