Here Comes the New GALAXY A-SERIES (2017) BY SAMSUNG -A3,A5,A7

Samsung kicked off the year by making the three often leaked members of its 2017 A series official. The Galaxy A7 (2017), Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A3 (2017) have been unboxed on January 5 at a dedicated event in Malaysia, but the company’s global press site listed them today.

The Galaxy A (2017) smartphones will first be available in Russia, and then be out in Western Europe in early February.

Vodafone UK reached out and revealed the freshly announced Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) and Galaxy A5 (2017) will launch in the UK. 

The new A3, A5 and A7 sport ridiculously good looks inherited from the flagship Samsung Galaxy S7. They als0 come loaded with IP68 dust and water resistance.

We outline the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017), A5 (2017) and A7 (2017) release date, price and specifications.
Quick specs

  • 4.7-inch HD display (A3), 5.2-inch full-HD display (A5), 5.7-inch full-HD display (A7)
  • Android 6.0 (all)
  • USB Type-C (all)
  • microSD support up to 256GB (all)
  • Available in black, gold or peach
Inside, the phones sport a lower-end Exynos processor. That's equivalent to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 600 series, though we'll need to do some proper benchmarking tests to see which chip is better.
One last thing to note: The phone comes with Android Marshmallow (6.01), not the latest Nougat update. This may not be a big deal but Samsung couldn't confirm when the phones will be updated.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017)

SPECS in Short-The most interesting member of the lineup is the 5.7” Galaxy A7 (2017), which comes with a FullHD Super AMOLED screen as well as a 1.9GHz Octa-core CPU and 3GB of RAM on an Exynos chipset. It comes with a 16MP primary camera and a 16MP selfie snapper, both featuring bright F/1.9 lenses. Storage is 32GB and is further expandable via a microSD card.


The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) is powered by a 3,600 mAh battery with Fast charging support. It will be available in Black, Blue, Pink and Gold color options.

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017)


The middle member of the new trio, Galaxy A5 (2017) comes with a 5.2” Super AMOLED screen of the same 1080p resolution. It also has the same Exynos 7880 chipset with 8 Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.9GHz and 3GB of RAM. The 32GB storage is once again expandable via a microSD slot.The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) has another couple of 16MP cameras, one for each side but it loses the F/1.9 fast aperture. 


Battery capacity has also been dropped to 3,000mAh, but the Fast charging is still here. Color options are once more Black, Blue, Pink and Gold.

Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017)


The Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) is the smallest of the bunch, sporting a 4.7” Super AMOLED display of 720p resolution. It has a slightly slower 1.6GHz octa-core CPU and the cameras are also of comparably lower resolution – 13MP at the back and 8MP at the front. Both snappers come with F/1.9 apertures, much like the Galaxy A7 (2017).RAM has been dropped to 2GB and internal storage is halved at 16GB.


The smaller size also meant only a 2,350mAh battery can fit, while Fast Charging is nowhere to be seen. Colors are, once more, Black, Blue, Pink and Gold.
