Samsung has started the new year by announcing three smartphones which were rumored to be announced in a special event but were listed by their site. The three new smartphones are members of its 2017 A series – Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017), A5(2017) and A3 (2017).
Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) :
The top end model of the three smartphones comes with a 5.7 inch FullHD Super AMOLED screen and a 1.9 GHz Octa-core processor paired with 3GB RAM on Samsung’s own Exynos chipset. The selling point of this smartphone would be the 16MP rear camera and 16MP front camera both sporting F/1.9 lenses for better pictures. Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) is powered by a 3,600 mAh battery with Fast charging support and has an internal storage of 32GB that can be expanded using a microSD card. It will be available in Black, Blue, Pink and Gold color options.
Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) :
Galaxy A5 sports the same chipset as A7, but comes with a 5.2 inch FullHD Super AMOLED screen. The phone has same 16MP front and back snappers but loses the F/1.9 aperture. The device is powered by a 3,000mAh with support for Fast charging. The internal storage is 32GB that can be expanded using a microSD card. Color options are once more Black, Blue, Pink and Gold.
Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) :
Galaxy A3 comes with a 4.7 inch Super AMOLED display of 720p resolution making it the smallest of the three models. The device is powered by a slower 1.6GHz octa-core CPU paired with 2GB RAM and internal storage of 16GB. There is 13MP camera at the back and an 8MP selfie camera both with an aperture of F/1.9.
