Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 may be ready in time to join the likes of Samsung Galaxy A7 2017 and Galaxy A5 2017 in a launch event the company is expected to hold very soon.
This is true thanks to new leaks of renders and a video of the supposed Samsung Galaxy A3 2017, showing off a stunning design for the compact handset. Images of the larger Samsung Galaxy A7 and middle-of-the-pack Galaxy A5 2017 have already been spotted on different online mediums, but it now that we have really gotten our eyes on what the smaller Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 will actually look like.
Even though the phone is expected to keep some of the design aspects of the Galaxy A3 2016, the latest design leak shows lots of similarities with the high-end Samsung Galaxy S7. This is the same case as the other Galaxy A series handsets to be released in the coming days. The body is slightly curved towards the front and even though the side bezels are thinner than before, don’t expect to come across a curved display like what you see on the Galaxy S7 Edge or the no longer existing Galaxy Note 7. Still, you will love what your eyes will see on this phone’s design.
Despite being a midrange phone, Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 will ship with a fingerprint scanner on its home button. The phone will also feature the latest USB-C while at the same time keep the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack.
Like this year’s version, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 will come with a 4.7-inch screen with 720p resolution. Under the hood, the midranger will include an Exynos 7870 processor that is paired with a RAM of 2GB and 8GB of expandable onboard storage. The selfie camera will feature an 8MP snapper while the main camera will come with a 13MP sensor. Still, don’t be surprised if the phone came in with a Qualcomm Snapdragon version, just like its predecessor did.
With Samsung still working on Android Nougat updates, it is early for any device to come from the company with this OS out of the box. As such, you can only expect Android Marshmallow to power the phone when it is announced. Whether Samsung will announce the refreshed units of the Galaxy A series all at once or not is still a mystery, but looking at the way things are progressing, it is highly unlikely.
