Sale and availability

Both the smartphones will go on sale in India on 15th March 2017 and pre-booking will start from 6th March 2017. Additionally, the new Samsung mobiles will be available online as well as offline.

The A series is water and dust resistant with IP 68 certification (like the Samsung S7). In fact, they can withstand up to 5 feet of water for 30 minutes. There is USB Type C port that comes with fast charging support. And even there is NFC that enables Samsung Pay.

Also, Samsung loaded the A series with the always On display feature, so you can glance at time and calendar without touching the device. (The always on display eats battery).

The 16 MP front camera addition to the A5 and A7 is exciting. We recently saw Samsung C9 Pro with a 16 MP camera and 6 GB RAM getting launched in India.  While Vivo and Oppo have been adding large MP camera for clicking selfies, it is new to Samsung. Moreover, the front & rear camera comes with faster auto-focus speed and there is soft screen glow screen flash, to click selfies in the dark.

The design looks quite similar to the Samsung S7, with the same glass and metal combination. There is an oblong shaped home button at the front, and Samsung Logo is placed above the display. The back side also comes with the curved glass which is supported by the metallic frame.
