Samsung all but confirms the Galaxy A 2017 series, water resistance included
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.
