Next-gen Samsung Galaxy A3 and A5 stop by FCC – large 2,900mAh battery in the A5

There’s a certain set of stops a smartphone needs to make before it’s allowed to hit the stores and in the US one such hurdle is the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Its database is often a source of intel on upcoming model launches and in this case we’re talking about the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) and the Galaxy A5 (2016).

Now, the vast majority of the data, included in one such filing, is dry legal documentation and not readily digestible test results. You’re also unlikely to care about the FCC certification label placement, even more so now that manufacturers have generally switched to e-labels – a menu item buried somewhere in the settings. Both the A3 (2016) and A5 (2016) will have one those, by the way.
