Samsung organized a presentation in Sarajevo of its latest mid-range smarthphones and a smartwatch. The Korean electronics company launched its Galaxy A3 and A5, and Gear S3, in a bid to appeal to the budget-conscious customer who has a taste for that premium look and feel.
The phones showcased in Sarajevo are sold by local telecoms, as well as in retail, at around 400 Euros.
The mid-range Galaxy A series has a new design taking elements of the Galaxy S7 and applying them to the new, cheaper handsets.
The Galaxy A3 is the smallest and therefore cheapest member of the new range, but still features a lot of high specs. Slightly more expensive Galaxy A5 comes with a 5.20-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels. It is powered by 1.9GHz octacore and comes with 3GB of RAM. The phone packs 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, Galaxy A5 packs a 16-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 16-megapixel front shooter for selfies. It runs Android 6.0 and is powered by a 3000 mAh non-removable battery.
