Smart and sleek

Crafted with premium metal and glass, the Galaxy A5 seamlessly fuses 3D glass and a metal frame with a modern finish. Zero camera protrusion means a smooth finish that is both sleek and stylish.

No retakes necessary

Take the perfect selfie with the Galaxy A5. The 16 MP front and rear cameras with Light+ Camera ensure your shots are clear and bright, even in low-light environments. The new floating camera button helps you comfortably take selfies with one hand, and the front flash ensures brightness, even when captured in dark settings.

Take it anywhere

The Galaxy A5 is the first in the A series of Samsung devices to achieve an IP681 rating. It’s dust-tight and water-resistant, so you can use it even in wet conditions. Use Secure Folder to help protect sensitive information. Leave your wallet at home and make convenient payments with a tap of your phone using Samsung Pay. Never fumble with your charger again thanks to the USB Type-C port, compatible with reversible cables.
