This is the first Samsung phone that has a full metal body. The Samsung Galaxy A3 has a sophisticated design and comes with a 4.5 inch qHD sAMOLED display. The device feels like a quality phone in your hand.
The A3 is equipped with a 1.2 GHz Quad core processor, 1.5GB of RAM and will support MicroSD memory cards up to 64GB. There is an 8 megapixel rear facing camera and a 5 megapixel front facing selfie camera. The handset also comes with WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth 4.0
Using Samsung's image detection coupled with voice recognition software, the Galaxy A3 lets you move the act of taking the selfie to the next level. This device allows you to take selfies without the need to touch the camera button. You cam fire off a selfie with your voice or by using your palm. Be warned though people may think your own personal photographer is following you around. The Galaxy A3 has a new Wide Selfie feature helps you to create a panorama-like selfie by merging three photos taken from the left/middle/right into one big group selfie.
The A3 has an 'Ultra Power Saving Mode' that helps helps to minimise your battery consumption. Ultra Power Saving Mode works by shutting down unnecessary functions, which reduces battery usage and helps to ensure your phone is available when you really need it. It's what Samsung calls 'a smart battery for a smart phone'.
