Samsung Galaxy A 2016 series

If you keep up with Samsung outside of the Android sphere, you may have heard of the rumours that they are selling off their camera business to Nikon. Could this mean the end of Samsung? Hardly. Simply put, they decided to pull out of a saturated market and stick with what they know best – the mobile phone market. To reinforce this, Samsung just announced the launch of their Samsung Galaxy A (2016) series of phones.

Samsung Galaxy A (2016):

With this launch, Samsung launched three phones, each with similar specs other than screen sizes. All phones will have almost identical specs (which we’ll outline bellow) as well as some very interesting and familiar designs. Carrying on the metal and glass theme that Samsung have opted to use for all their phones of late, the three Samsung Galaxy A (2016) phones have smaller bezels than their predecessors.

Each of the Samsung Galaxy A (2016) range will have a fingerprint sensor to guarantee security of the user and be able to make use of secure fingerprint payments using Samsung pay using both Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) and Near Field Communication (NFC). We guess it will also be able to use Android Pay when that launches World wide in the not too distant future.

Along with the Fingerprint sensor, all three Samsung Galaxy A (2016) phone will have an f1.9 camera on back and front, allowing excellent light capture capabilities (the F-stop is the “iris” of the camera which allows you to allow light into the camera. The lower the number, the higher the light enters the camera). With Image Optical Stabilisation (OIS), pictures in low light should be pin sharp. And for all Selfie aficionado’s, the front camera has a wide selfie lens, so that along with the f1.9 aperture, your selfies in clubs will be wide and bright.
