We made our casual visit to the Samsung Store in SM Aura and to our surprise, we spotted the new Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) there. The new Galaxy A series was announced last month and Samsung Philippines was quick enough to bring one to the market.
The new Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) is a step higher than the last year’s model bringing the same elegant metal chassis but new and improved chipset, the slightly bigger 5.2-inch display is now in full HD, an optically stabilized camera, a larger 2,900 mAh battery and running Android 5.1 Lollipop.
