Last month, the first rumours about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017), claiming that the phone will be available in four colours – Black, Gold, Pink and Blue – started making the rounds online. However, today, a set of renders with the handsets were leaked, alongside the presumed specs, revealing pretty much we would like to know about it, ahead of its launch.
To be more specific, the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) will come with a full HD display, measuring 5.2 inches, and carrying a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. As for what’s under the hood, it’s relying on Samsung’s own Exynos 7880 system-on-chip, with an octa-core configuration, clocked at 1.8 GHz.
The processor is aided by a Mali-T860 MP4 graphics chip and 3 GB of RAM, while the internal storage capacity counts 32 GB. The latter is most likely expendable, using a microSD card.
Moving on to the camera department, the Galaxy A5 (2017) will feature a 16 MP duo. That’s right, 16 MP for both the rear and the front-facing cameras, so expect some pretty nice selfies from this smartphone.
As for the battery capacity, it will be powered by a 3000 mAh battery, which should keep the lights on for a full day of intensive use. Finally, the operating system is Google’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) will come with some pretty interesting features as well, like a USB Type-C port, a possible fingerprint scanner, embedded in the physical home button, and an IP68 certification rating, meaning that users will be able to submerge it 10-feet deep water, for as long as 30 minutes. If you ask us, these are some pretty awesome features, considering that we’re talking about a mid-range smartphone.
We’re looking forward to CES 2017, where the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017), alongside the 2017 versions of the Galaxy A3 and A7, will make its official debut.
