Galaxy A5 (2017) Specs Reviewed in A Hands-On Video
When the first render of Galaxy A5 (2017) shows up, tech community begins to compare the device with the premium Galaxy S7. As far as the design is concerned, Galaxy A5's new edition will look similar to S7 inside and out.
A recent video showed an alleged Galaxy A5 (2017) sporting customizable Always-on-Display - a feature that Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are proud of having. AOD keeps users on track with the recent notifications while keeping calendars and clocks within reach.
In the video that has been taken down, the review mentions a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display and Exynos 7870 as the chipset. The build looks similar to Galaxy S7, according to Android Authority.
The user gives positive feedback to Galaxy A5 (2017) due to its battery life but does not seem to be impressed by the optics and its interface departments. Phone Radar has learned that the next-gen Galaxy A5 will run Android Marshmallow, but given the timing of launch, the flagship could run on Android 7 Nougat out of the box next year.
The handset is said to be shipped with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage that is expandable up to 256GB via MicroSD card. The improvements in Galaxy A5 (2017) should be on its battery and RAM while the camera may not be getting any gain from its predecessor (13MP/5MP).
Galaxy A5 (2017) Price
Galaxy A5 (2017) is expected to be priced around $439. As a comparison, the 2016's edition was introduced at around $320 and the price gap seems to be huge for a slightly revamped smartphone.
Galaxy A5 (2017) Release Date
Samsung is expected to unveil Galaxy A5 (2017) later this month and will be available in the market in February 2017.
