The gold A3 will be available from February 23, while the gold A5 will be available from March 2.
The standard-coloured handsets go on general sale from February 12.
Samsung announced the handsets back in October, but only got round to setting a UK release date yesterday. Both have metal bodies, like the Galaxy Alpha and the recently-unveiled Galaxy A7. Many think the Galaxy S6 will also come clad in metal.
The A5 is the better-specced of the two. It totes a 5-inch 720p AMOLED screen, 1.2GHz quad-core chip, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. And all in a package that’s 6.7mm slim. A 13-megapixel camera and 5-megapixel front-facer are on imaging duties.

The A3’s 4.5-inch display has a resolution of 960×540 pixels. It only has an 8-megapixel camera and 1GB of RAM. At 6.9mm, it’s a smudge thicker, and has the same chip and microSD card slot. It too has a 5-megapixel front-facer.
Both are 4G and run Android 4.4 KitKat. There’s no word on whether they’ll get the jump to Lollipop.
