Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) Now Available in the Philippines For P19,990


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.
