Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) renders leak out showing a Galaxy S7-like design
Samsung is apparently getting ready to release a new mid-range smartphone that will resemble its Galaxy S7 flagship. The handset in question is the Galaxy A5 (2017), model number SM-A520F, and could be announced as early as this December alongside a Galaxy A3 (2017) and a Galaxy A7 (2017).

Today, Android Authority and @OnLeaks revealed some renders that seemingly show what the Galaxy A5 (2017) will look like. The upcoming handset obviously has rounded edges à la Galaxy S7, and it's said that its body could be made out of metal and glass.

Reportedly, the Galaxy A5 (2017) has about the same size as the Galaxy A5 (2016), sporting a similar 5.2-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels. But the new phone should be 0.5mm thicker than its predecessor, which could mean it'll pack a larger battery.

It looks like the Galaxy A5 (2017) comes with a USB Type-C port, and a side-mounted speaker. Previous rumors had it that the smartphone would be powered by an octa-core Exynos 7880 CPU, further offering 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 13 MP rear camera. As you will notice in the renders below, the rear camera is not a protruding one.

Right now, we can't confirm any of the details in this article, but it does seem that the Galaxy A5 (2017) will be a very interesting mid-range device. Let us know if you like what you're seeing thus far!
