With the recent announcement of the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) and Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) it seems that they’re set to offer a Galaxy S7-like waterproof and sleek design, at a fraction of the price. (Techradar)
There’s no exact release date but it’s been quoted to be launching sometime in February in the UK. However, Mobile Fun has already opened pre-orders, with the Galaxy A3 (2017) up for £299 and the Galaxy A5 (2017) available for £399 though note that no shipping date has yet been given, and Samsung itself hasn’t yet confirmed the official RRP.
In stock now, we have a range of brand new Redneck cases available for both devices, including the Prima Wallet Folio, Duo Wallet and TPU Flexi.
Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) and A5 (2017) design and screen
Like the Samsung Galaxy S7, these phones have a metal frame and glass back, with curved corners and a physical home button beneath the screen.
They’re even both IP68 certified dust and water resistant, meaning they can be submerged up to 1.5 meters deep for up to 30 minutes. They come in four colors: Black Sky, Gold Sand, Blue Mist and Peach Cloud.
The only real design difference between the two new phones is the dimensions, with the Galaxy A3 (2017) coming in at 135.4 x 66.2 x 7.9mm, while the Galaxy A5 (2017) is 146.1 x 71.4 x 7.9mm.
The screen offers a bigger difference in spec though, with the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) sporting a compact 4.7-inch 720p display, while the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) has a larger and sharper 5.2-inch 1080p screen. However, both use high-quality Super AMOLED displays, just like Samsung’s flagships.
Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) and A5 (2017) OS and power
Both phones run Android Marshmallow – which is one generation behind the latest version from Google – and the Galaxy A3 2017 has a 1.6GHz octa-core chipset and 2GB of RAM, while the Galaxy A5 (2017) has a speedier 1.9GHz octa-core chip and 3GB of RAM.
There’s a respectable amount of storage too. The Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) has 16GB, while the Galaxy A5 2017 has 32GB, and both support microSD cards of up to 256GB.
Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 and A5 2017 other features
The main extra feature of both these phones is a fingerprint scanner, but they also both have NFC, which combined allow for contactless payments.
