The Samsung Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3 are members of the Galaxy A family, which Samsung describes as “stylishly crafted” with slim, full metal bodies, Super AMOLED displays and “a wide range of selfie functions to play with.” The spec lists for the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3 are as follows:

Obviously the big deal is the fact that both the A5 and A3 are full metal and are made by Samsung, a company that’s caught a lot of flak in the past for its plasticky phones. It’s interesting to see that Sammy has gone full metal after trying it out on a couple of other recent phones, but I’m looking forward to seeing what a full metal Samsung phone feels like.
Samsung is also touting the A5 and A3’s selfie powers. Both feature 5-megapixel front-facing cams, but if you’d prefer an even higher-res photo, you can use their Rear Selfie mode. This feature lets you use the A5 and A3’s rear cameras and have the phone automatically detect and focus on your face.
Both the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3 will launch in November 2014 in “select markets,” including China. Both phones will be available in multiple colors including Pearl White, Midnight Black, Platinum Silver, Soft Pink, Light Blue and Champagne Gold. Obviously they’re not the most high-end things that Samsung has ever cranked out, but they’re sure to garner quite a bit of attention thanks to the fact that they’ve got full metal, unibody designs.
What do you think of the look of these phones? Does a full metal Samsung smartphone interest you?
