Samsung’s been prepping some new additions to its Galaxy A series of Android smartphones, and at least some of those models look like they could be nearly ready to launch. In addition to all-new hardware, we’re also expecting new editions for a few of last year’s models, like the Galaxy A5. We’ve already seen a lot of evidence for this new model, including a number of hardware pics and some early spec breakdowns. But now we’re wondering if some of those specs may have gotten their wires crossed, as an official source shows up that appears to disagree with part of what we’ve already heard.

So far, all indications have pointed to the new Galaxy A5 graduating from last year’s 5-inch 720p panel to a new full HD, 1080p screen (of roughly the same size, if not a little larger).

But now Samsung’s got a User Agent Profile posted for its model SM-A510, the phone we’ve been following as the new Galaxy A5. And according to that that file – one coming straight from Samsung’s own servers – the phone’s screen resolution will once again be 720p.

Now, we suppose it’s possible that this document represents older, in-development hardware, and Samsung intends to update things prior to a commercial launch. That said, maybe we should just read the writing on the wall here and get ready to expect another 720p model. For now, we’d just love to see another source backing up either theory.
