Galaxy A Series 2017: Samsung To Launch New Series on Jan. 5, Teases Water-Resistant Phones

A lot will be in store for the Samsung Galaxy A Series 2017, and it will be unveiled really, really soon. Aside from the tease of a water-resistant smartphone device, Samsung’s mid-range phones are promising a huge step up from its previous generation.

Reports revealed that the South Korean tech giant will start the year with a launch of the Galaxy A Series, Samsung’s mid-range premium line. The event will be on Jan. 5, 2017 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The invite promises an “A-list atmosphere” along with a “ring in a new wave of adventures” and “accomplishments to look forward to.”

Galaxy A Series 2017: What To Expect

Galaxy A7 (2017), Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A3 (2017) are expected to be unveiled by Samsung, while the Galaxy A9 (2017) is expected to follow. There are also teasers that reveal the upcoming phones will be water-resistant.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy A7 (2017) is said to have a slightly larger screen than Galaxy A7 (2016) that had a 5.5-inch screen. Now it will sport a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED full-HD display with 1080×1920 pixels. The smartphone will be powered by Samsung’s octa-core Exynos 7880 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB built-in expandable storage.

There are also rumors that the Galaxy A7 (2017) will have a 16-megapixel front and rear camera with an aperture of f/1.9. Moreover, the device is purportedly dust and water resistant with IP68 Certification.

The Galaxy A5 (2017) will have a smaller screen with a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display. Like Galaxy A7 (2017), the A5 will be powered by octa-core Exynos 7880 processor. It will have a smaller RAM of 2GB with the same 32GB expandable memory. Its rear and front camera will also be in 16 megapixels.

The smallest in the roster, the Galaxy A3 (2017) will have a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED 720×1280 pixel display coupled with 1.5GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 processor.

If the leaked speculations of the Galaxy A Series 2017 will prove to be true, it will surely be an upgrade from the series’ second-generation counterparts as the A Series borrows the design of Samsung Galaxy S7 flagship with a metal and glass design.
