The images of the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2nd Gen), A7 (2nd Gen) have surfaced online, revealing key design features of the device.

Technology blog SamMobile has reportedly caught hold of the raw images of the rumoured Galaxy A5 (2nd Gen) and Galaxy A7 (2nd Gen) smartphone.

The pictures have indicated that both the devices will boast metal frames like the predecessors, but also an additional layer of glass cover (probably 2.5D Gorilla Glass shield) on the rear side to give a sense of premium.

They also show that Samsung has tweaked the position of the camera's LED flash on the rear side. In the previous generation phone, the company had placed LED flash to the left side, while the square-shaped speaker placed to the right side of the camera module. But, in the new phones, LED flash has been shifted to the left side, whereas the speaker grill is nowhere to be seen.

If we take a closer look at the front display panel of the devices, we can see that the home button looks bigger as compared to the one we see in the predecessors. It is widely reported that both Galaxy A5 (2nd Gen) and Galaxy A7 (2nd Gen) are expected to house fingerprint sensor on the home button.

As of now, there is no word on when these smartphones will be unveiled, but if history is taken as indication, Samsung is likely to launch them by this year end or in January 2016.

Expected features of Samsung Galaxy A5 (2nd Gen):

It is believed that the upcoming new gen Galaxy A5 (SM-A510F) will boast a bigger 5.2-inch full HD display and run on the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS powered by the company's proprietary 1.6GHz Exynos 7 series Octa-core processor, Mali-T720 GPU, 2GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt storage (expandable via microSD), 13MP camera on the rear-side and a 5MP snapper on the front.

Expected features of Samsung Galaxy A7 (2nd Gen):

Word on the street is that Samsung will keep the new Galaxy A7's screen size to 5.5-inch same as its predecessor, but would make some changes inside the device. It is expected to come packed with 64-bit 1.5GHz Snapdragon quad-core processor, 3GB RAM, 16GB memory (expandable via microSD), 13MP primary camera and a 5 MP front-facing snapper.
