Over the last few weeks we have heard about Samsung's new Galaxy A range, particularly the A3 and the A7, with specs of the devices showing up online. Ironically then, the first of the range to show up in a leaked render is the Galaxy A5, the one device in the range that has kept itself quiet up until this point.

As we know, the new Galaxy A range is Samsung's premium mid-range line up based of the company's recently launched Galaxy Alpha. The Alpha was the first Samsung to be built with premium materials (metal) and the Galaxy A3, A5, and A7 will follow that ethos. The leaked render above looks like an official press shot and shows the Galaxy A5 to carry much of the Alpha aesthetic, while it also appears to be a slim handset too.

While the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A7 have yet to be seen, they are almost certainly going to look identical to the A5 aside from the fact they have difference sized screens. The A5 gets the aluminium construction of the Alpha and will sport a 5-inch Super AMOLED 720p resolution screen, a 13 megapixel rear snapper, a 5 megapixel front facer, and a host of other mid-range specs (such as a 2,300 mAH battery). Some reports are suggesting the Galaxy A5 will have a price tag of around $400, which typically for Samsung is a touch on the pricey side.

As for the Galaxy A3 and A7, the A3 will get a 4.52-inch Super AMOLED screen likely to be qHD (540960 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.

The A7 will have 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.
