Samsung is finally going to make the Galaxy A (2017) line of upper-midrange smartphones official next week, on January 5 to be precise. This comes after many months of leaks and rumors regarding the handsets. Perhaps the most leaked has been the A5 (2017), which we've seen in press renders a couple of days ago already. However, those only showed the device's front. Today a new set of press renders of the Galaxy A5 (2017) has leaked, and these give us the view of its back too.
The Galaxy A5 (2017) should come with a 5.2-inch 1080p Super AMOLED touchscreen, a pair of 16 MP cameras (one on the front, one on the back), the Exynos 7880 chipset (with a 1.8 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU), 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of expandable storage.
On the other hand, the Galaxy A3 (2017) will sport a 4.7-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, a 13 MP main camera, an 8 MP selfie snapper, the Exynos 7870 SoC (with a 1.5 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU), 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of expandable storage. We haven't seen this model a lot before today, so here it is in press renders for your viewing pleasure.
The members of the new Galaxy A (2017) series might be water-resistant, according to past rumors. Their overall design language is clearly borrowed from the Galaxy S7, what with all those extra curves compared to their predecessors. The new A phones will have metal frames too. The A3 (2017) and A5 (2017) are to become available in Western Europe in mid-January. The smaller one should retail for €379, while the bigger model will go for €479. Four color versions will be offered for each: Black Sky, Gold Sand, Blue Coral, and Peach Cloud (pink).
