Leaked Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) renders and video reveal a pleasing design

Samsung may soon announce three new Galaxy A smartphones: Galaxy A3 (2017), Galaxy A5 (2017), and Galaxy A7 (2017). Not long after we've seen images allegedly showing the upcoming Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7, today we can also take a look at what appears to be the Galaxy A3 (2017).

Similar to the Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A7 (2017), the Galaxy A3 (2017) seems to be borrowing a lot from the design of Samsung's Galaxy S7 flagship - which is quite something for a low-to-mid-range device. We can see that a slightly curved glass is covering the entire front of the device (mind you, the display itself isn't curved), while overall the phone is pretty pleasing to the eye.

Apparently, the Galaxy A3 (2017) has a fingerprint scanner on the front, a speaker on its right side, and a USB Type-C port at the bottom, next to a 3.5mm headset jack.

According to previous rumors, the new Galaxy A3 is supposed to sport a 4.7-inch 720p display, further featuring 2 GB of RAM, an 8 MP front-facing camera, a 12 MP rear camera, and an Exynos 7870 processor (or maybe an unknown Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset). 

It's said that the new handset will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow at launch, but we really hope this isn't the case, since Android 7 Nougat has been around for some time now. We'll bring more details about the Galaxy A3 (2017) as soon as Samsung confirms its existence.
