Just months after the introduction of the much hyped S10 series, arguably the best smartphone you can buy right now, Samsung announces the all new Galaxy A-series

The battle of the best (smart) phone continues with the introduction of the latest generation of mobile innovation, the all new Galaxy A-Series.

According to Samsung, the Galaxy A-Series follows through on “10 years of Galaxy innovation, upgraded for all, at an affordable price”. This simply means that mobile users who place a high value on seamless experience and brand consistency – without burning a hole in their pockets – are in good hands!

Created with one thing in mind; giving customers value for money, the A-Series is designed with incredible improvements to the essential device features. This includes immersive viewing experiences, longer lasting performance and ground-breaking cameras.

“Galaxy A is designed to provide an option for everyone, whether for first-time mobile users or value-seekers,” said Justin Hume, director off integrated mobility at Samsung South Africa. “We focussed on the needs of the local market and have researched the unique preferences to bring the flagship experience to a broader audience. It offers premium features to South Africans who want to live the Galaxy life.”

The commitment to delivering meaningful innovation to everyone has also led to the evolution of the J Series into the A-Series. This will enable consumers to access innovative essentials as part of a streamlined offering, making it easier for them to choose the right device for them.
