We have been hearing plenty about the Samsung Galaxy A series recently, the range of devices thought to be stemming from the company's recently launched Galaxy Alpha. Last week we told you about the Galaxy A7 as the new series went into testing, and now it is the turn of the smaller Galaxy A3.The whole A range will borrow the high end styling and materials of the Galaxy Alpha, which means the devices will be built on a metal frame. However, the handsets will cover various price points and the Galaxy A3 is thought to be the baby of the range. It will get a 4.52-inch Super AMOLED screen likely to be qHD (540×960 pixels) resolution, a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 with 1GB of RAM. There will be 8GB of storage with a microSd card slot for expanding the space, while an 8 megapixel lens on the rear and a 5 megapixel lens on the front will take care of the cameras. Last week some details about the A7 emerged and today more detailed specs are available. That handset will get a 5.5-inch display with 720p HD resolution, a 64-bit Snapdragon 610 with 1.5GB of RAM and probably the same camera configuration as the Galaxy A3. However, some reports suggest a Full HD 1080p screen is possible and up to 2GB of RAM, which would obviously be better. Samsung is expected to show off the entire Galaxy A range during October and we expect to see at least three smartphones arrive in the new series.
