The Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 are expected to be the main stars of Samsung' upcoming launch event. They are the new Galaxy A (2017) series handsets the South Korean company plans to make available on the market by the end of year.
We've already seen what the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 will look like, but we had no idea what the Galaxy A3 (2017) might look like until today.
Courtesy of OnLeaks, we now know the Galaxy A3 (2017) won't be too different in terms of design when compared to the other two smartphones in the series.
It's got the same stylish candybar form factor with rounded corners that the Galaxy A series is well-known for. These images are renders made by someone based on the real device, but we've learned from previous experience that they are pretty accurate.
The Galaxy A3 (2017) is supposed to be the cheapest among the three that Samsung plans to unveil this month. However, that doesn't mean the Galaxy A3 (2017) is a low-end smartphone, on the contrary.
Samsung's Galaxy A phone is decent enough hardware-wise, as the phone is powered by an Exynos 7870 processor, complemented by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory (expandable via microSD card).
Also, the phone sports a 4.7-inch display that supports HD (720p) resolution. The Galaxy A (2017) packs a 12-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and a secondary 8-megapixel camera in the front for selfies. A fingerprint scanner will be included as well, along with a USB Type-C port and an audio jack port.
Just like its other two bigger brothers, the Galaxy A3 (2017) will ship with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow right out of the box.
