We should wait for the official unveiling and see if the next As will be the same as their predecessors (midrange specs for flagship price).
speakerrrr, 19 Nov 2016Please keep the weight as 132g. I dont want more gram than thisHardly my friend.The previous version had weight of 172 g with 3300 MaH,this version might have a 3300-3600 MaH,which means it will weight same or even a bit more.
But i think GSM has some wrong info.At Fone.arena and Gadgets it says this phone with have a 1.87GHz Octa-Core Exynos 7880 processor with Mali-T860 GPU.Which makes more sense since the Samsung A5 2017 will have an A72 core processor which was confirmed by even you GSM arena.How can a A5 2017 be better than an expensier and better model such as the A7 2017 ?
"The A5 (2017) should be powered by Samsung's Exynos 7880 chipset, which has a CPU with four Cortex-A72 cores clocked at up to 1.87 GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at up to 1.3 GHz. The GPU is a Mali-T860MP4. The phone will have 3GB of RAM apparently."~Notes take from GSM A5 2017 announcement.
And yes,it's water resistant.

If the chipset isn't a SD 625,652,or at least helio x20(that even the cheap xiaomi note 4 has) this phone is not a good value for it's money.
Exynos 7870 ? Wow that's used in J7 prime,and look at that phone,it lags while gaming,it really bad.Using a bellow mid range chipset on a phone that will cost on a flagship level.Dual 16 mp cameras ? LOL Samsung is trying to battle Oppo now since they have the same set up.Samsung A7 had a weak chipset last year now another weak chipset.

Besides the 7870 is meant to be a mid-range cpu and the x10 was meant to compete with flagship cpus of last year like the sd 810, exynos 7420, and kirin 935.
mir, 19 Nov 2016Hopefully it doesn't cost the same as a one plus 3.it will be cost same as oneplus 3T 128 gb variant

exyons 7870 is a crap chipset.samsung positioning A series in the upper mid segment...it should must have exyons 7880 or snapdragon 650/652...
There's a rumor that the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) will feature IP68 water resistant.. The first for a non-flagship for Samsung
If this 2017 model can original have installed Android N 7.0.This is a best selling point.Don't upgrade the newest Android system after selling.We want original inside.Because every brand devices will lagging and problems after sell upgrade.Pls seriously this issue.....samsung and ...
Hopefully not related to the recent 7 sibling with built-in kaboom
