Samsung Announces The 2016 Universe A Set, Coming First To China Later This Month
Samsung has updated the mid-range Universe A set with three new models set to debut later this month. The Universe A7, A5, and A3 (observed in that order above, to not scale) can come to China first, but they’ll expand globally later. They are positioned as cheaper other options to a Universe S series, however they will have some solid features and Samsung’s now-standard metal/glass construction.
The Universe A7 is easily the most premium from the new devices. Listed here are the specs.
So, this is a respectable phone. It’s a number of Samsung’s greatest features, namely MST and also the fingerprint scanner. The display is just 1080p, but that is okay for any slightly cheaper phone. The A5 may be the step lower out of this one, however it does not lose much.
The A5 has a slightly smaller screen, but it’s still a 1080p AMOLED and there’s still MST and the fingerprint reader. RAM is only 2GB, though. The A3 is a bigger step down. Here’s what you can expect.
This phone is only going to have 1.5GB of RAM, also it loses the fingerprint readers and MST technology based in the other two Universe A phones. The screen can also be smaller sized at 4.7-inches and 720p. Maybe that’s something you are into, though.
Samsung did not list prices, however that will most likely vary by region. Likewise, the worldwide rollout is hazy at the best. I expect it will be a minimum of a couple of several weeks, and US carriers likely will not offer it for purchase directly.
