We’ve heard an awful lot about the Galaxy A5 (2017) over the course of the past few weeks. We first caught wind of the handset when we exclusively reported that Samsung was working on refreshing its Galaxy A lineup, then shortly after the device broke cover in a handful of leaked images and design renders.
Now, however, it’s been suggested that the Galaxy A5 (2017) will be available in four colors — Black, Blue, Gold and Pink — when it launches. It’s unclear whether the hues will match up to the options offered for the Galaxy S7, but we’re hoping they do as it would be great to see the Note 7’s Blue Coral color on more Samsung devices, including those in the mid-range category.
Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) SM-A520 will launch in the amazing color choice of Black, Gold, Pink and Blue. Wow.

As far as specifications go, recent leaks, rumors and speculation point towards the Galaxy A5 (2017) 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.
Fortunately, it doesn’t look like we’re going to have to wait much longer for Samsung to announce the Galaxy A5 (2017) as it’s already been granted Bluetooth and Wi-Fi certification, which means the only remaining pitstop it has to make before it hits the shelves is the FCC.
