Samsung unveiled the newest smartphones under the Galaxy A series sporting full metal unibody designs, Galaxy A5 and  Galaxy A3. The Korean company said these are their slimmest Android smartphones to date flaunting 6.7mm and 6.9mm thickness respectively. These devices were rumored numerous times in the past months, there was even a rumored Galaxy A7 phablet but only the first two were officially launched.

Design wise, these two Galaxy A phones' looks is sleek especially knowing that both sport a unibody aluminum frame. Metal casing is something that Samsung has started embracing this year when it comes to creating their new devices especially smartphones of the recent.  Social networking and taking photos are the highlights of the Galaxy A5 and A3 and these two feature 13MP and 8MP rear cameras respectively and a front facing snapper of 5MP which are more than enough to help users create quality photos and selfies for social network sharing activities. Expect camera features and effects come preloaded on these handsets.
