A Dutch retailer, SmartPhoneShop.nl, put both the new Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3 up for pre-order on its online store. The retailer also shows the “Expected Date” of January 8 on both the A5 and A3’s pre-order pages.
These are the second iterations of the A5 and the A3. The A5 is like a bigger sibling to the smaller A3. The A5 sports a 5.2 inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, Exynos 7 1.6GHz octa-core CPU, and 2GB of RAM.
The Galaxy A3 features a smaller 4.7 inch 720p Super AMOLED display, 1.5GHz CPU, and 1.5GB of RAM.
The website in question is selling dual-SIM models for both phones. Either phone comes in black and gold color options with the A5 at €429 or the A3 running at €329.
This is not normal... I can take the s5 for the same price of this a3... Something is wrong on those online retailers, or should be (i hope)
I like everything about the 2nd gen A5 except the price. No Sale!! I'll keep my 1st gen for now.
Now im sad... i thought it will be 250 euro max for A3. Its better to go for S4 then... its 277 euros during holidays.
