Samsung reveals its metal unibody Galaxy A Series, starts at PhP 16,990

One of the highlights of the three phones is the 5MP front-facing camera and its wide-angle lens. 

The premium Samsung Galaxy Alpha wasn't just an experiment after all; rather, it's the company's gateway to introducing more handsets with unibody designs. The newly revealed Galaxy A7, A5, and A3 sit right below the Alpha and offer similar build quality at a lower price.

Earlier today, we attended an intimate launch of the Galaxy A line, featuring the aforementioned phones. While all three share similar traits, such as LTE connectivity, a slim metal unibody, and selfie-centric 5-megapixel front camera, they come in varying display sizes and resolutions. Take a look:
