The TENAA listing reveals that the handset weighs 145grams along with dimensions of 144.7 70.8 6.9 mm, and will be available in gold color option. An earlier rumor suggested that the new Galaxy A-series handsets could come equipped with a fingerprint scanner. However, the listing doesn t reveal any of that. Also, a user agent profile that leaked last week revealed the A5 (2016) might feature HD (720p) display, but the TENAA listing reveals a 1080p display.
Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) specifications, features: Based on the listing, the handset sports a 5.2-inch 1080p display. Under the hood, it is powered by a 1.7GHz Exynos 7 octa-core chipset paired with Mali-T720 GPU and 2GB of RAM. On the storage front, it is expected to come with 16GB internal storage and a microSD card slot too.
It has a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 5-megapixel selfie camera. The smartphone is also equipped with a 2,900mAh battery. Running on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop wrapped under TouchWiz UI, connectivity options such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS are also expected.
Since there is some conflict in details leaked via recent benchmark results, FCC and TENAA listings, we will have to wait for confirmed information when Samsung officially announces the smartphone.
