Samsung Working on Successors to First Generation Galaxy A Devices


Samsung has recently moved to bolster its device offerings in various categories with new smartphones. These include the super-slim Galaxy A8 in the Galaxy A family and the Galaxy J2, J5 and J7 in the Galaxy J range. Whilst those are recent devices, there’s quite a number of devices unveiled last year and early this year that Samsung is said to be working on their successors.

Last year’s Galaxy A3 and A5 and the Galaxy A7 unveiled early this year are in line for a refresh soon. According to Sammobile, the Galaxy A3’s successor will be an unnamed device with model number SM-A310F. SM-A510F and SM-A710F are the model numbers for the A5 and A7 respectively. These are just for Russia though and probably some other markets around the world. As is always the case, China will get devices with slightly different model numbers: SM-A5100 and SM-A7100.

There are no more details on the two devices but we should get to hear more on that in coming days if indeed these devices are in the works. Samsung promised to release a number of midrange devices as it seeks to shore up profit margins from its mobile division which dipped in Q2 2015 thanks to slow sales of its flagship Galaxy S6 smartphone.
