Will these two mid-range smartphones bring back the magic the company has lost out on?

Have a look at the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3 quick specifications.

Design

The Samsung Galaxy A5 and A3 are the company’s slimmest smartphones to date. Adopting a unibody metal body, in terms of thickness, the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 are 6.7mm and 6.9mm respectively. In comparison, the recently launched Oppo R5 is much slimmer at 4.85mm.

Bottom Line

With dropping sales and increasing competition in the low to mid range segments, these devices could be the company’s trump cards to make a comeback. However, this will highly depend upon how the company will price these devices, considering their modest specs sheet.
