Rumours: Samsung Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 (2016) have an unofficial release date?


In our previous article regarding the new Samsung Galaxy A series (2016), we mentioned that a shop somewhere in Netherlands have already listed the price tag for the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) and Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) unofficially; now another Dutch retailer,, has set up a pre-order for both devices on its online store and 8 January is the expected date listed in there.

The all new A3 and A5 (2016) are an improved version of their predecessors, sporting much better tech specs (which you can check out in our Samsung Galaxy A series comparison article), and features such as a fingerprint sensor (only for the A5 and A7), Samsung Pay, Samsung KNOX, S-Voice, optical image stabilization (OIS) and more. They’re both rumoured to be priced at €329 (RM1512.49) and €399 (RM1834.30) as well. 

It does seem legitimate, since Samsung has already officially announced the new Galaxy A series for 2016. But we should still take these rumours with a grain of salt and wait for their official statement, so we will keep you updated.
