Unlocked Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) now available in the US

Shortly after it started selling the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) in the US, retailer B&H Photo Video is now also offering the Galaxy A5 (2017). As is the case with the A7, the Galaxy A5 (2017) is not officially sold by Samsung in the States, but B&H still offers 1-year warranty for it.

Similar to the A7 (2017), the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) is dust- and water-resistant, features a fingerprint scanner on the front, and runs Android 7 Nougat (thanks to a recent update). However, the A5 is smaller than the A7, sporting a 5.2-inch 1080p AMOLED display and packing a 3000 mAh battery. The handset is powered by an octa-core Exynos 7880 processor, further featuring 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable internal memory, a 16 MP rear camera, and another 16 MP camera on the front. You can find out much more about the smartphone by reading our Galaxy A5 (2017) review.

At the moment, only the gold version of the Galaxy A5 (2017) is in stock at B&H, but the blue and black models should be available soon, too. The phone is unlocked, has dual SIM support, and is fully compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile. It won't work on Verizon and Sprint though.

B&H is asking $329.99 for the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017). If you think that's a fair price, you can order the handset via the source link below.
