If you’re the kind of person that does most of your tweeting and Facebooking from your mobile device – and there are a lot more of those people than I originally thought – you might be interested in Samsung’s two new phones, the Ultra Slim Galaxy A5 and the Galaxy A3, which have been optimized for social networking.

They’re Samsung’s slimmest phones to date and both sport sleek metal bodies and come in multiple colors, like Pearl White, Midnight Black, Platinum Silver, and more. They both have 5MP front-facing cameras as well as a variety of features all designed to help you snap the perfect selfies for when you want to show off your beautiful mug.

On the inside they’ve both got 1.2GHz quad-core processors and 16GB of internal memory (plus MicroSD slot), but the A5 has 2GB RAM while the A3 only has 1GB. The A5 also sports a 5″ screen over the A3’s 4.5″ screen. Both phones will be available in select markets starting in November. Check out the full press release below.
