The A 4 model of leptons was proposed originally for nearly degenerate neutrino masses. With minimal
modification, it is shown to accommodate as well the cases of normal hierarchy and inverted hierarchy. In all
cases, this new model predicts sin22␪atm⫽1 and tan2 ␪ sol ⫽0.5 for U e3 ⫽0. It also predicts their deviations from
1 and 0.5 respectively for U e3 ⫽0.
