Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) Update: New Leak, Curved Screen For A Lower-End A5 (2017)? [Video]


The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) update reveals what is known so far about the key specs and features of the mid-range phone, starting from a benchmarking hint in August to various render, leaks and even a review on video. Now the newest leak comes from an Arab source that indicates a curved screen for A5 (2017), a feature that is only available for the highest-end Samsung devices.

A new leak from an Arab source reveals that the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) may have a 2.5D finish, which strongly suggests a small curvature at the edge of the glass, similar to what is seen in the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. There is also a rumor that a full-on double curved panel may be featured in the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017), but this remains unconfirmed and not backup by any solid evidence.
