Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) specs, UK price and release date
This new Galaxy A3 is a wee bit bigger than the first A3 model, with a 4.7-inch screen instead of a 4.5-inch display, while also boasting 720p visuals. That old 8-megapixel camera has now been boosted to a 13-megapixel snapper, while you get full Android Lollipop on-board.

Samsung’s new Galaxy A5 is also a mite larger than 2015’s Galaxy A5, with the 5-inch screen expanding to a mighty 5.2-inches. You now have a Full HD 1080p resolution instead of just 720p, although the camera is once again a 13-megapixel effort.
Here in the UK, the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) will cost £319 SIM-free. Once again you can pre-order the A5 right now, and February 2016 is the expected launch month.
