Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) hands-on video and photos leak out
Update: A full "video review" of the Galaxy A5 (2017) can be watched above! Mind you, what we're seeing here could be a pre-production unit, so don't judge the handset by this review.
First seen last month in a series of good looking renders, the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) is an upcoming mid-rage smartphone that could be officially announced in the next few months. While Samsung has yet to confirm the existence of this device, we can now see it in what appear to be images taken from a hands-on video.
The new images gives credence to what was previously reported about the Galaxy A5 (2017). This is a handset that kind of resembles the Galaxy S7, having relatively similar rounded corners, and a fingerprint scanner on the front. Obviously, there are some differences between the S7 and the A5 (2017), including the fact that the new phone comes with a USB Type-C port, doesn't have a protruding rear camera, and neither a heart rate sensor. Moreover, it seems that the A5 (2017) has a speaker on its right side, next to the power button.
The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) should sport a 5.2-inch 1080p display, being powered by an octa-core Exynos 7870 processor. Other features may include 32 GB of expandable storage space and 3 GB of RAM. All in all, this looks like a pretty nice successor to the Galaxy A5 (2016).
When it finally hits the market - probably early next year - the Galaxy A5 (2017) could be available in four color variants: black, pink, blue, and gold. We sincerely hope the phone will run Android 7 Nougat out of the box.
