The mobile world moves pretty fast, but not in this case. Samsung's Galaxy A3 and A5 mid-range smartphones will finally go on sale tomorrow, after an unprecedented six-month wait.

Both phones were announced back in December. They were supposed to go on sale in April.

However, there's no word on the A7, which is the top-of-the-range model. It too was announced back in December, with an April on-sale date.

The A3 and A5 follow on from last year's models of the same names. The A5 is bigger, with a 5.2-inch 1080p screen, and more powerful, with a 1.5GHz octa-core processor. It also has 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and a 13-megapixel rear camera.

The A3 boasts a 4.7-inch 720p screen, 1.5GHz of RAM and a 13-megapixel rear camera. Both handsets have 5-megapixel front-facers.

The A7 is the big daddy, standing with a 5.5-inch screen. Inside is a 1.6GHz octa-core processor and 3GB of RAM, alongside 16GB of storage. It has the same cameras as its smaller brothers.

The A3 starts at £179, while the A5 is £229. If we hear anything about the A7's availability, we'll let you know.
