Aside from the slew of reports about Samsung’s flagship series, the Galaxy S, the tech world is also filled with release rumors and speculations regarding the company’s upper mid-range devices, the Galaxy A series. For instance, fresh release news updates are emerging about the Samsung Galaxy A5 and A7 2017 models.
It seems that the next-gen model of the Galaxy A7 will not have a European release. This is based on a listing on Samsung Austria’s website showing the mobile devices with compatibility support for the Gear S3, where the Galaxy A7 2017 model is not included.

GSM Arena noted though that it will not really be a big shock if Samsung Galaxy A7 2017 is indeed not getting a European release as the 2016 model did not hit the region as well. There hasn’t been any official release confirmation yet from Samsung about the new Galaxy A7 and the entire Galaxy A models for next year. But according to the latest specs rumors, tech fans may find an Exynos 7870 chipset under the hood of the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) upon its release, paired with 3GB RAM and native storage options of 32GB and 64GB. As for the display, it could sport a 5.5″ or 5.7″ display with 1080p resolution. The Samsung Galaxy A7 could also have a 16MP camera lens sensor.
While the Samsung Galaxy A7 2017 model is a no-show in the aforementioned listing, two Galaxy A devices for release next year are included in it, the Galaxy A3 and the Galaxy A5. The latest news about the Samsung Galaxy A5 revealed that it will come in four color variants. It will be available in black, gold, pink, and a new option, blue, according to a tweet from a famous tipster.

The 2016 model of the Galaxy A5 hit the market with four color options as well, but instead of a blue variant, a white version was released.
For the specs, the Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 model will reportedly sport a 5.2-inch display, 3GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, and 3000 mAh battery. Moreover, specs and release report from a separate GSM Arena post shared that it will get the Exynos 7880 processor with 3GB RAM.
Meanwhile, the low-end model of the A series, the Galaxy A3 2017 model, was previously spotted in Zauba, India’s import and export tracking website. And last month, the smartphone got certified by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG).
As for its most recent sighting, earlier this November, Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 received its Wi-Fi certification, where the documentation showed SM-A320F as its model number. According to Phone Arena, this model number is consistent with the ones seen on two other benchmarking sites, Geekbench and GFXBench.
The upcoming Galaxy A3 is a 4.7-inch smartphone with 720 x 1280 screen resolution. Hardware specs include an Exynos 7870 with octa-core 1.5 GHz CPU and Mali T830 GPU. Furthermore, it will be equipped with 2GB RAM and 8GB internal memory. Phone Arena, further enumerating other specs to see from the Galaxy A3, noted the following.
“The camera combo from back to front weighs in at 12MP/8MP, and Android 6.0.1 is running the show.”
According to website MobileKaPrice containing the product listing for the handset, the Indian release date for the next-gen Samsung Galaxy A3 is pegged for February 12, 2017.
The Galaxy A series was initially introduced in 2015 as “Samsung’s attempt to take the fight to the OEMs that have been encroaching on its market share, Sam Mobile explained, also describing that the A devices are “very well built” and they showcase a “unique look of its own.”
