The camera-centric features get a neat upgrade with the enhanced 16MP front and back camera complete with f1.9 lens, resulting in sharper, clearer images even in low-light conditions.

Snapping a shot gets much more convenient with the Floating Camera Button, which allows users to move the camera button anywhere across the screen.

Samsung Galaxy A fans are also treated to vivid Super AMOLED screen displays for a breathtakingly better viewing experience

Inspired by the flagship Galaxy mobile experience, users can now enjoy crisp, vibrant visuals on their Full HD Super AMOLED 5.2-inch (Galaxy A5) and 5.7-inch (Galaxy A7) screens.

The new models are also the first of the Samsung A Series to receive the IP68 dust and water resistance rating

Geared to inspire spontaneity in life, the phones' dust and water resistance is designed to be the perfect accompaniment for everyday adventures. Users won't have to worry about little annoyances like spilled drinks - the phones are able to withstand being immersed in 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes!

Readily-available additions like Samsung Pay and mySamsung perfectly round up the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 experience

The new series come equipped with Samsung Pay, a secure and convenient payment alternative. Just swipe up, authenticate with fingerprint and tap to pay. Equipped with NFC and MST, Samsung Pay is compatible with most terminals that accept credit, debit and prepaid cards.

Meanwhile, the pre-loaded mySamsung app provides easy access in managing the full Samsung experience. You can use it to fine-tune your phone for optimum performance, from extending battery life to maximising memory space. Keep a lookout also for the awesome treats and perks offered through the app!
