Samsung has recently announced rapidly declining profits and shortly after their statement, Samsung announced the new Samsung Galaxy Alpha A5 and A3 smartphones. The two devices are targeted towards the mid-range market, but analysts are skeptic about whether or not these two smartphones are going to help Samsung sales increase.
The new Samsung Galaxy Alpha A5 and A3 have a:
[…] beautifully crafted full metal unibody, slim design, superior hardware and the best possible social media experience.
The full metal unibody may refer to the chassis, because the photos released by Samsung for the new Samsung Galaxy Alpha A5 and A3 show a removable plastic back-plate.
Their target audience are young people with a penchant for fashion, but analysts are wondering if consumers are going to be attracted by the sleek design of the new Samsung Galaxy Alpha A5 and A3 and overlook its less-than-great technical specifications.
The tech specs are simply correct for the mid-range market smartphones: both smartphones have a 1.2 GHz quad-core processors and upgradeable 16 GB of internal storage. The A3 has 1 GB of RAM, a 4.5-inch HD screen and a 1,900 mAh battery the A5 has 2 GB of RAM, a 5-inch HD screen and a 2,300 mAh battery.
The new Samsung Galaxy Alpha A5 and A3 are both running Android KitKat, which many are saying is a big compromise that is going to cost Samsung quite a lot of money, as the newest version of Android, Android Lollipop was released a month ago. Maybe the new Samsung Galaxy Alpha A5 and A3 are going to get upgraded to Lollipop, but there’s no certainty they will, just yet.
Samsung is putting all the attention on these two smartphones’ social networking capabilities. The new Samsung Galaxy Alpha A5 and A3 have social networks integrated in their interface and their 2.1-MP front-facing cameras are focused on taking good selfies.
The South Korean company is going through troubled times and it is making great efforts to turn round the mobile department so that it delivers more revenue for the company.
