Exclusive: Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 (2017) in the pipeline

Samsung officially announced the Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 (2016) around nine months ago. The second iteration of this mid-range handset lineup got a huge improvement over its predecessor, the handsets got a metal and glass design much like the Galaxy S6, fingerprint scanners as well as cameras with optical image stabilization. We can now confirm that Samsung has the 2017 iteration of the Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 in the pipeline.

The model numbers of the 2017 iteration of this lineup include SM-A320F, SM-A520F and SM-A720F for the Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 respectively. The SM-A520F has also been spotted in import listings, it has been imported into India for the purpose of testing. Other handsets in this lineup are expected to follow suit soon.

Benchmark results for the Galaxy A5 (2017) show that it may be powered by the Exynos 7880 processor coupled with 3GB RAM. Further details about the specifications of the smartphones in this lineup will likely be available soon. It’s unclear at this point in time when Samsung will be launching the 2017 iteration of the Galaxy A series.

I think Samsung should update the firmware on the other A series first.!!

Well I was going to spend my cash on the A3 (2016) this year for my mum, but didn’t even know that there will be a next years model.

Anyway, great to see the A5′s benchmark score nearly identical to the S6 score.

I don’t think there might be an A3 (2017) but maybe for the A8. But who knows?

Put a gyroscope and an LED notification light in them and THEN tell us about calling them the best mid range phones

Price/quality it will be worse than their predecessors, just like their flagships in this generation. Sammy thinks they’re the new Apple…

Might even get one of these as my next phone if they insist of using the stupid edges on their flagships…

The A series represent the best mid range smartphone samsung have ever released. Their design concept, optimisation and outstanding battery life(A8 and A9). Sometimes am tempted to feel they are more optimised than their flagship phones

They don’t even have a notification light in the A-series, it’s just ridiculous for that price.

Samsung keeps improving Speed and the Quality. Anxiously waiting for 2017 A series .
