It should have a fingerprint scanner..... and also a slightly bigger battery than the 2016 version.
The processor is a big disappointment...same A53 at the same speed, just 4 more which is useless. It better have usb-c and a fingerprint scanner but seeing this crappy processor i expect the worst.
Probably I could have better just bought the 2016 version instead of waiting for the new version.
Looking on Samsung Galaxy A3 (SM-A310) data, you can see 10-11 gigabytes of storage. Therefore new A3 2017 will have 16 GB, 8 of which will be used by the system.
aqours, 10 Sep 2016i dont see the reason using 1080p on 4.7" screen, the screen is quite small for full HD. its n... moreGiven that those 720p AMOLED panels have PenTile matrix (only in 5.5 inchers there's RGB available) 1080p resolution would be useful and noticeable.
this phone is as symbolic as is gets.
If any child ask you what GREED means, show him A3 2017.
2017 and phones coming with 8GB storage?. Or is this sub-$100 phone?.
Pl make a nice compact phone with decent specs... There are more options for 5.5 inch phones already...
JohannesBR, 10 Sep 2016I don't trust this news. It would be dumb if Samsung decided to make the 2017 A3 with only 8GB... moreI didn't buy the A3 2016 because it have less than 2Gb Ram... Guess what...
I don't trust this news. It would be dumb if Samsung decided to make the 2017 A3 with only 8GB of internal storage.
Lol the first A3 and second gen A3 had 16gb hahaha, samsung = crash & burn
Andy4117, 10 Sep 20161080p display would be better... and some more GB memoryi dont see the reason using 1080p on 4.7" screen, the screen is quite small for full HD. its not like we can see the pixel on it with 720p resolution, and using just 720p will save some battery juice. but yes, more GB is always welcome
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2016This is A series. It always has glass back. If you want plastic back buy On3 or J3.there is nothing impossible in samsung they will made it better because glass is easy to break than plastic and it would be a lot cheaper if they do it!
Dear Samsung, Now that you make all glass phones can you make them with some little grippy bits on the side so it doesnt keep slipping out of my hands or have to hide it away in a case.
