Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) Details

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) is an upgraded version of the original Galaxy A5. The 2016 version comes with major upgrades and ships with a host of new features.

The front and rear f/1.9 lens allow users to click bright images in dark environments. For selfies and video calls via Messenger and Skype, there is the same 5-megapixel front-facing shooter.
To pave way for lag-free and flawless performance, the device is powered by a 1.6 GHz octa-core processor coupled with 2GB RAM. Storing apps and data should never be a problem as the smartphone comes with 16GB of onboard storage space which can further be expanded up to 128GB using a microSD card.
