Samsung Galaxy A05 has been doing the rounds in the rumor mill for the past month, and today the affordable smartphone appeared in its first photos. The device was certified by Anatel, the National Telecommunications Agency in Brazil, and the listing came with two photos revealing the front and back.
The phone has a glossy panel with a stripe design in Black, while the front has an Infinity-U notch for the selfie camera.
Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy A05 with a Helio G85 chipset that is limited to LTE connectivity. The phone's battery capacity is expected to be 5,000 mAh, matching the Galaxy A04, but we expect slightly better power management due to the more advanced chip.
The Galaxy A05 appearing in multiple certification databases means a market launch is just around the corner. The phone is going to cost no more than $150 and is likely to be advertised as a device for people who need a basic smartphone to connect with their loved ones.
