Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance


Back in August, we learned that Samsung was working on the Galaxy A5 (2017). Set to succeed the current Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016), we've since seen the device in apparent live pictures and now, it has gained Wi-Fi certification. 

The Galaxy A series comprises several devices beyond the A5. At present, there's also the Galaxy A3 (2016)Galaxy A7 (2016)Galaxy A9 (2016) and Galaxy A9 Pro (2016). Each rolled out earlier on this year, and it's very likely that 2017 versions will be incoming across the Galaxy A family

From what we've gathered thus far, there will be two versions of the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) -- a single-SIM model (SM-A520F) and a dual-SIM (SM-A520F/DS) variant. The latter has just gotten Wi-Fi certification, which also reveals that the device will probably ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This will come as a disappointment to those looking for Android Nougat, and likely means that the other 2017 Galaxy A models will follow suit. 

From what we've learned previously, the Galaxy A5 (2017) will be kitted out with Sammy's own Exynos 7880 processor, a 5.2-inch 1080p display, 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable storage and a 13-megapixel main camera. It is also believed that the device will include a 3000 mAh battery.

There are no precise details pertaining to announcement or release as yet. Taking history into account, though, it's probable that the Galaxy A5 (2017) and other upcoming A series handsets will be unveiled at around the turn of the year
