Samsung’s Galaxy A3 and A5 have been fairly well-received among the media, but that hasn’t translated into blockbuster sales for Samsung quite yet given that the phone duo has been limited to select Asian regions since the launch. Today, that expansion looks to be on Samsung’s radar, as firmware for Europe-specific models has gone live on SamMobile, suggesting that a Samsung Galaxy A-series Europe debut isn’t far away.
The fact that firmware even exists for all the countries that it does is proof enough for us to make the assumption that this means Samsung will take the smartphone pair to the EU soon, but there’s always the sliver of possibility that Samsung went through the trouble of making the software just for kicks – that’s highly unlikely, however.
If you’re in Europe and interested in purchasing one of the two mid-rangers should they show up in your countries, and you’re wondering if either are worth it, today’s your lucky day. Just yesterday, on the show floor in Las Vegas at CES 2015, our crack team of Michael Fisher, Hayato Huseman, and Jaime Rivera brought us hands-on videos of both. The Galaxy A3 video can be found here, while the A5’s lives at this link.
