For now is very clear that Galaxy A5 (2017) is one of the new smartphones Samsung plans to unveil in Q1 2017, and one of the three Galaxy A series devices will be released in the coming months. As some of you might already know, Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) is a mid-range smartphone that we hope will ship with Android 7.0 Nougat operating system onboard. Today, the first press render of the smartphone leaked online, along with some of its specs.
The first thing we notice is the fact that Samsung won't drop the Home physical button, which is still present on the Galaxy A5 (2017). Also, customers will be able to choose from at least four color version: Pink, Black, Silver and Gold.
Aside from the obvious features that can be observed in the picture, the leak also mentions some of the Galaxy A5 (2017), and from what we can tell this is truly a mid-range smartphone.
Unfortunately, we still don't know whether or not the phone will come with Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box, or Samsung will push it as update later on.
16MP + 16MP cameras in the front and back
However, we do know the Galaxy A5 (2017) will pack a more than decent 1.8GHz octa-core Exynos 7880 processor, complemented by a Mali-T860 MP4 graphics processing unit, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory (expandable via microSD card).
Also, the upcoming smartphone is said to sport a 5.2-inch display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution, but there's no mention of Corning Gorilla Glass coating.
On the back, Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) is expected to feature a high-end 16-megapixel single-lens camera, while in the front there should be a no less impressive 16-megapixel camera for selfies.
The mid-range Android smartphone will be powered by a 3,000 mAh battery, which is likely to be replaceable. Other features like 3.5mm audio jack and USB Type-C port are supposed to be included as well.
Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) will be available for purchase in China for around $390, but it might be more expensive in other countries.
