There have been a lot of rumors circulating about the new Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) and some of them turned to be true. The new A5, together with the Samsung Galaxy A3, will be launched in January 2017 and it will cost between $350 and $400. The customers will have the chance to choose their device in four different colors: Blue, Black, Pink, and Gold.
According to the Slashleaks reports, the new A5 will come out with a 5.2-inch Full HD screen while the phone’s dimensions will be 145x71x7.8 mm. The octa-core Samsung Exynos 7880 processor with A57 cores working at 1.9 GHz each will be powering new device. It is expected that both front and rear camera will have 16 MP, enough for high-quality photos. The new A5 (2017) will feature 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, while the 3000 mAh battery will be enough for most people to provide enough juice for an entire day of usage. The new smartphone is water-resistant, and it can sustain being in up to 5-feet-deep water for half an hour. Corning Gorilla Glass 4 is going to protect the screen from damaging.
In a video posted by Neil Potgieter, we have a chance to see the new Samsung Galaxy A5. However, this is not the final version, because it has yet to be released, so we believe it is a prototype. Moreover, the phone in the video was running on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, while there is a chance that Android 7.0 Nougat will be installed instead. Among other features, new A5 also comes with an accelerometer, Proximity sensor, and a gyroscope.
According to the leak, the price of the phone will be $390, and this is not expensive for a new smartphone which comes with impressive features, water-resistance, and powerful processor. It is not a flagship device, but it is still quite competitive in the segment. Follow us for more details.
