Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A3 (2017) press renders leak out

Earlier today, we learned that Samsung was getting ready to officially announce the Galaxy A 2017 series next week, on January 5. The new series will include three smartphones (at least for the beginning): Galaxy A3 (2017), Galaxy A5 (2017), and Galaxy A7 (2017).

We've already seen various renders and images showing these upcoming handsets, but now we have something better: leaked press renders presenting the fronts and rears of the Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A3 (2017). Most probably, these are the images that Samsung will be using to promote the new devices.

While

The all new Galaxy A series is almost here

they have similar designs, the Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A3 (2017) come in different sizes, as the A5 (model number SM-A520) sports a 5.2-inch 1080p display, while the A3 (model number SM-A320) has a 4.7-inch 720p screen.

The new Galaxy A5 is expected to be powered by an octa-core Exynox 7880 CPU, further featuring 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a 3300 mAh battery. The new Galaxy A3 will be a bit more modest, possibly featuring an octa-core Exynos 7870 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 3000 mAh battery.

Yesterday, Samsung hinted at the fact that the Galaxy A 2017 family would be water-resistant, but it's not clear if this applies to all models in the new series.

Apparently, the Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A3 (2017) will be available in four color variants: black, gold, blue, and pink. The phones could go on sale beginning January, though, for now, we don't know if that's true for the US market. In any case, we'll find out more about the Galaxy A 2017 series next week. Stay tuned!

Buying an octa-core A53 Soc on 28nm in 2017 should be a crime. Not to mention the weak (for the price) T830 MP3 in it. Especially for that price, I can get a new unlocked S7 for a bit more than 450E

Depends on your country. Where I live S7 costs 600€.

She already has a flagship device (GS6E). This will be for her second line.

Exynos 7870 is one of the earliest mid range 14nm SOC.

Power isn't everything. Mali-T830MP3 is like 50% faster than Adreno 506 in SD625. This thing is going to compete with Moto Z Play Huawei Nova - they ain't cheap.
Ps. SoC is going to be manufactures in 14nm process, 28nm comes from old news and it turned out to be not true. You can't run the GPU at 950MHz if it wasn't manufactured in 14nm process.

Because she barely used this number.

People accuse Apple of changing a name of the old iPhone and selling as new - even though It has all new hardware inside.

What the hell are these various models of Samsung that all look exactly the same and use older hardware?

They're the cheap version of the galaxy series, you see, not everyone can buy a new phone of $700 every year...

At least Samsung doesn't charge you $550 and $650 for these mid rangers.
I am talking about the iPhone 5C in case you missed it.

5c came out with he same time as 5s. 5s back then was around $700. 5c was a fast device compared to competition and had been supported for the next 5 years. Who want to bet this phone will see only one update if any at all?

Dont you think that you are really exaggerating this update thing for the galaxy a series ?

You are saying that this phone "may" only see one update, meanwhile in real life what is really happening is that the original a5 (which launched in 2014) is getting nouget update

http://m.gsmarena.com/original_samsung_galaxy_a5_is_getting_android_70_nougat_update_in_january-news-22319.php

This phone launched with kitkat on board, updated to lollipop and then to marshmallow, and the nouget is already pending, Sorry but what you said is completely trash
