Samsung Electronics is updating its Galaxy A smartphones that offer premium design, mobile payment technology, and enhanced camera features. The Galaxy A (2016) series includes three models with different screen size options: 5.5-inch for the A7, 5.2-inch for the A5 and 4.7-inch for the A3./p>
The new smartphone series is combining metal and glass and has a narrower bezel.
The Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 (2016) support Samsung Pay, Samsung’s mobile payment service. Protected by fingerprint verification, Samsung Pay works with both Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) and Near Filed Communication (NFC) technologies.
The Galaxy A (2016) also comes equipped with an enhanced camera system, which includes Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) to prevent image blurring, as well as a front and rear F1.9 lens to allow users to take the optimum photos in dark conditions. What’s more, with Samsung’s Quick Launch feature, double clicking the home button launches the camera in less than a second. For selfies, the smartphones offer features including Wide Selfie, Palm Selfie and Beautifying Effects.
The Galaxy A (2016) will be available in China in mid-December 2015 and will be expanded to global markets.
