Samsung is coming up with a new release of two of its versions of its Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) and Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017). The two models are slated for release in the Western European Union in mid-January 2017.

Both Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) and Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) have been given clearance by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) and WiFi Alliance (WFA) signifying it is ready for release. However, a leak from a reputable leakster, Roland Quant claimed in a Twitter post that both units would be launched in Western Europe in mid-January instead.

Quant also specified that retail prices for the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) and Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) would be €349 (USD $364) and €449 (USD $468) respectively. He also said that both units would come in black, blue, gold, and pink, according to Neurogadget.
