Things have started to move quickly in Samsung Galaxy A5 territory with a retailer having posted full device specifications on its website today. Earlier we saw some high quality pictures of the Galaxy A5 posted online, which showed a good looking device departing from Samsung's long held metal tradition.
The posting by the Kazaki retailer not only lists the specifications and price of the device, but it also provides us some insight on what Samsung's next metal device will end up costing. According to the retailer, the Samsung Galaxy A5 will be available in Kazakhstan with a price tag of 99,990 Teng. Converting these into US Dollars translates into a not-so-modest price tag of $552.
Spotted by hitecmail.ru, the posting gives us quite a few details about the Galaxy A5. Apart from the price tag of $552 in Kazakhstan, the device will also come with a rather modest dual core processor capable of achieving frequencies of up to 1.2 GHz. This could potentially end up being Qualcomm's Snapdragon 400 or 410.
In addition to this, the Galaxy A5 will come with a 5 inch Super AMOLED display and a 13 MP rear camera. The battery on the Galaxy A5 will be light when compared to other devices in the industry with a capacity of 2300 mAh, but given the chipset powering it, perhaps it will be sufficient. The Galaxy A5 will also come with 16 GB of internal memory and a micro SD expansion slot.
The device will measure 139.3 x 69.7 x 7 mm and have a weight of 123 grams. These specifications posted by the retailer suggest a reasonable device for those who do not require high performance from their devices but with the price tag of $552, the question still remains that will the Galaxy A5 catch on in the market? We'll find out more when the product launches. Let us know in the comments about what you think in the meantime.
