Samsung Galaxy A5 launch postponed
By Adeel Inam
There were reports about Samsung that the company was preparing to launch the successor to their Samsung Galaxy Alpha smartphone known as Samsung Galaxy A5 in the month of November but that won't be the case anymore as ET News has reported that Samsung will be postponing the launch of their Samsung Galaxy A5.
The reason is that the company is facing some problems with the manufacturing of the device because of which the launch would have to wait for now.
Both Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3 that are yet to come are designed in one thing in mind to recover the Chinese market that Samsung has lost because of companies like Xiaomi and Meizu because of their high end spec devices with affordable prices.
Samsung Galaxy A5 will be equipped with a 5inch display that will support a resolution of 720p, 2GB of RAM and a 13MP camera on the back. The smartphone does offer high end build that other Chinese companies are also offering but at a higher price where flagship devices from both Meizu and Xiaomi cost around $270 but same can’t be said about Samsung as their Galaxy Alpha A5 is said to be priced at $424.
If Samsung does want to recapture the Chinese market than launching a smartphone with a price tag like that is not an option. It would be better if Samsung could lower the price of their Galaxy Alpha smartphones a little bit, as Samsung is a well-recognized company and people would go for their smartphone first before going to any other Chinese smartphone manufacturer.
Even if Samsung was to lower the price on their Galaxy Alpha A5, still the smartphones that Xiaomi and Meizu are offering are way better in terms of specs. Time will tell whether Samsung will be successful in capturing back the Chinese market with companies like Meizu and Xiaomi lying around.
