Samsung has officially announced its Galaxy A phones for 2017. This fresh batch of phones includes three models: the A7, A5, and A3.
The A7, as you may have already guessed, will be the more premium of the three devices, sporting a 5.7-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display and a 1.9GHz octa-core CPU. The display drops to 5.2-inches on the A5, though it keeps 1080p resolution, while the A3 has a 4.7-inch HD display.
It seems that the A5 uses the same processor as the A7, but in the A3, clock speed on the octa-core CPU drops to 1.6GHz. Battery capacity in the A 2017 series is also dependent on model: the A7 has a relatively beefy 3,600mAh battery, the A5 strikes the middle ground with 3,000mAh, and the A3 rounds out the group with 2,350mAh. It should be noted that the A7 and A5 both feature fast charging capabilities while the A3 does not.
A7 and A5 both offer 16MP front and rear-facing cameras, but the rear camera on the A3 is 13MP and the front-facing one is 8MP.
Samsung will likely announce that at its event later in the week. The A7 series will launch first in Russia later this month before rolling out to other regions around the world afterward
