Samsung Galaxy A5 goes on sale in China

The Galaxy A5 follows the Samsung Galaxy Alpha's approach of a more premium, metallic chassis as the South Korean manufacturer moves away from the plastic casing of the Galaxy S5.
The phone itself is one of the thinnest Samsung has yet produced at 6.7mm and boasts a 64-bit quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, clocked at 1.2GHz.
In the meantime, Samsung is also preparing an international launch, but at the moment details are scarce.
It is built around a 5" Super AMOLED 720p display and at the back, there's a 13MP snapper with LED flash.
Design-wise the Alphas are hard to tell apart – the white one on the left is the bigger Alpha A5, the white one on the right is the smaller Alpha A3 (both confirmed via their About screens).
Both the Samsung Galaxy Alpha A3 and A5 were put through the GFX Benchmark leaving behind some specs.
