Galaxy A5 (2017) receives Wi-Fi certification
A little over a month ago, we exclusively confirmed that Samsung is working on a third-generation model of the Galaxy A5. Shortly after our report went live, the handset, which has been dubbed the Galaxy A5 (2017), surfaced in a couple of leaked images showcasing its metal unibody, and now two models of the device — one single (SM-A520F) and the other dual-SIM (SM-A520F/DS) — have been granted Wi-Fi certification, which is usually one of the final tests required to release a new smartphone.
Unfortunately, the documentation doesn’t reveal anything about the Galaxy A5 (2017), other than that it will ship running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and not Android 7.0 Nougat. However, recent leaks, rumors and speculation point towards it packing a 5.2-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, an Exynos 7880 processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable memory (up to 256GB via microSD), a 13MP rear-facing camera and a 3,000mAh non-removable battery.
