Samsung's A series of smartphones have been doing rounds on the internet for a while now. Recently, we've reported about the upper mid-range Galaxy A7 (2017) and the mid-range Galaxy A5 (2017). Now, the Galaxy A3 (2017) is in the news. A video render of the smartphone surfaced online revealing a gorgeous design.
Akin to its bigger siblings, the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) seems to have taken design cues from this year's flagship Galaxy S7 which is happy welcome considering the price segment the device falls in.
Here's what we know about the device so far.
Stylish design with 2.5D Curved Glass at the front
Like mentioned earlier, the smartphone takes design cues from the Galaxy S7. Based on the renders, the smartphone appears to have a 2.5D curved glass front with the power button and speaker on the right and volume rocker on the left.
The rectangular-ish home button is located below the display which also doubles as a fingerprint scanner. At the bottom, it has a USB Type-C port and thankfully, the 3.5mm audio port is still there.
4.7-inch Super AMOLED HD display
The Galaxy A3 (2017) retains the same 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display (as seen on the Galaxy A3 2016 model) with HD resolution.
Other specs include an in-house Exynos 7870 chipset, 2GB of RAM, 12MP primary camera, and an 8MP front facing camera. There are no details available about the battery capacity as of now.
On the software side of things, the smartphone will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box. It's not known yet if Samsung will roll out an Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy A3 (2017) anytime soon but we really hope it does some time in 2017.
Pricing and availability
The Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) was launched in January this year, going by this trend, the Galaxy A3 (2017) should also launch sometime in January 2017.
As far as the pricing is considered, the are no details available as of now. But, we will keep you posted as soon as something solid surfaces online.
