Samsung all but confirms the Galaxy A 2017 series, water resistance included
Samsung is getting ready to release several new Galaxy A smartphones, including the Galaxy A3 (2017), Galaxy A5 (2017), and Galaxy A7 (2017). Before actually announcing all there is to know about these handsets, Samsung today seems to be revealing one of the series' key features.

In a teaser image posted on Twitter, Samsung Mobile Malaysia all but confirms the fact that the Galaxy A 2017 handsets (or at least some of them) are water resistant. "It all begins with A. Hold your breath," says Samsung, while throwing in some water splashes for good measure - see below.

According to recent rumors, the Galaxy A7 (2017) should be IP68-certified for dust- and water-resistance. Now, after seeing Samsung's teaser, we're thinking that this may also be the case with the upcoming Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3.

The Galaxy A 2017 phones might be announced at CES 2017 (January 5 - January 8), and launched later in January. Since some Galaxy A 2016 handsets are available to buy in the US, we're pretty sure that at least one Galaxy A 2017 model will be released stateside at some point. Until we hear more about this, here's a detailed look at what to expect from the Samsung Galaxy A 2017 series.

If they could take off half an inch of screen at each level that'd be perfect.Phones are way too big.

Yeah, not happening. No one wants to use a 4.3 inch Galaxy A3 if that were to happen. If you dont like big phones, well tough luck. The rest of the world doesnt agree. Bigger phones = more space, more battery, more room for more specs.
