Galaxy A 2016 brings Samsung Pay to budget phones

Not that they’re slouches otherwise. All of them have sharper displays (720p on the A3, 1080p on the A5 and A7), faster processors (1.5GHz quad-core and 1.6GHz octa-core) and higher-capacity batteries. You’ll also find optical image stabilization on the 13-megapixel cameras for the two higher-end models, although little has changed for the 5-megapixel front shooters. And yes, despite the trend among higher-end Samsung handsets, they still have microSD card slots to expand their built-in 16GB of storage.

China gets first crack at the new Galaxy A series in mid-December, and you’ll see the line spread to other countries after that. That’s unfortunate if you want to pick up a Galaxy A before the year is out, but it makes sense given Samsung’s recent troubles. On top of its lackluster high-end sales, it’s being squeezed at the low end by Chinese rivals like Huawei and Xiaomi, which offer feature-packed phones for very little cash. Samsung needs these new budget models if it wants to bounce back in the country.
