Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) press renders and specs leaked

Samsung is expected to announce the 2017 Galaxy A lineup soon. We have heard quite a few different rumors regarding the upcoming devices recently, including that they just might come with an IP68 rating.

Now, press renders of one of the devices — the Galaxy A5 — along with the specs have leaked. Based on the renders, it looks like the smartphone will be available in four different colors. In addition to the Black and Gold color option, you’ll also be able to get the Galaxy A5 in Blue or Pink.

Specs-wise, the device will feature a 5.2-inch Full HD display and will be powered by the Exynos 7880 processor along with 3 GB of RAM. You’ll find a 16 MP camera on the back as well as on the front. The Galaxy A5 is expected to come with 32 GB of storage for your apps, images, and other data, and a 3,000 mAh battery. It will reportedly retail for 2,699 Yuan, which is around $390.

Samsung hasn’t revealed when exactly the device will be officially announced but based on the fact that the renders of the upcoming Galaxy A5 have already leaked and that its predecessor was introduced in December 2015, we expect that the announcement is just around the corner. CES is taking place in Las Vegas in less than two weeks, so we hope and expect to see the device by then at the latest.

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) photos and video reportedly leaked


A few weeks ago, we posted some exclusive renders and information, in collaboration with @OnLeaks, for the upcoming 2017 version of the Samsung Galaxy A5. The company has not yet officially announced this phone but today some new photos, and a hands-on video, have made their way onto the Internet that allegedly show off the smartphone.

The video and renders come from a person named Neil Potgieter, who in the clip says he is doing a “review” of the 2017 Samsung Galaxy A5. However, since the phone hasn’t even been announced yet, let alone released, this “review” is likely of a pre-production prototype for the phone.  For example, the video shows the phone running on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, but it’s more than possible the final 2017 Galaxy A5 could have Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.

The video does seem to jibe with what we have learned about the phone, including that it will be nearly identical to the current Galaxy S7 in terms of its design, complete with rounded corners. It also seems to show that it will indeed have 3GB of RAM and an octa-core processor. The video shows that this model has 32GB of storage, but again it’s possible that Samsung could release models with even more onboard storage.

In any case, Samsung is expected to officially announce and launch the new Galaxy A5 sometime in December. Are you interested in getting the new version of this mid-range smartphone?
