Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) renders leak out showing a Galaxy S7-like design

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!

Kinda reminds me of Samsung releasing 'Neo' versions of older handsets... Though not quite like that beyond aesthetics here...

These same phone come out every year. Shutup! Only a complete fool would talk about a phone, no longer even in production, not being sold though officials mean.

One thing I have to give credit to Samsung for is creatively reapplying the purpose of "Neo" releases to have a fresh, distinguishable design. At least, that IS what the A series is meant to be right? Like incremental equals to flagships, with slightly lesser specs?

I litterly was about to buy the Samsung A5(2016) when I saw this post. Realised that it is probably worth waiting for this new (2017) version! Looks beautiful, but don't like the side speaker thing. And is USB type-C that usefull?

What Samsung need to do is to keep only three different lines of smartphones: Galaxy S Galaxy A Galaxy J Each series should have 3 models, like S5, S7, S9. S3 could be a 5.2" S7 could be a 5.5" S9 could be a 6" Secondly the two upper models should be released with flat-screens and also with curved screens...or just dish to curved screens which is not practical but only a pleasure because the design looks awful. So let those who prefer a non-flat screen pay extra for this feature and let those who prefer flat screens save money. And so on with A-series and J-series...or just with flat screens in them. Right now Samsung seems confused and don't know what to release and how many phones to release and bear sign of a badly on a not thoroughly thought strategy, but just produce what is technically possible, as this is a sign of creativity?
