Samsung Galaxy A 2017 series was launched a few days ago and apparently, none of the three – Samsung Galaxy A3 2017, Galaxy A5 2017 and Galaxy A7 2017 – will be making it to the U.S., latest reports can confirm.
The trio is deemed as the closest one can get to the company’s high-end Samsung Galaxy S7, but of course, they lack on several aspects. Being midrange offerings, the Galaxy A 2017 series turns out to be one of the best models in this market segment. You will enjoy a premium design, high-end specs, and features while at the same time getting a decent price. In fact, some people have gone ahead to claim that the A in the names of the phones stands for Affordable.
The low-end Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 might be, well, low-end. However, moving a notch higher to the Galaxy A5 2017 or Galaxy A7 2017 will reveal a pretty interesting set of features and specs for what are to be midrange phones. Where Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 has a 4.7-inch HD display screen, the other two have 5.2-inch and 5.7-inch Full HD screens, respectively. There is Always On Display technology on board alongside dust and water resistance rated at IP68, same as the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
Like many other midrange smartphones, don’t expect to come across high-end internals on any of the Galaxy A 2017 handsets. Samsung went for midrange Exynos processors alongside decent RAM packages of 2GB for the A3 and 3GB for the two high-end models. The latter two also get better camera specs at 16MP on both front and rear snappers, making them the best in the midrange family so far.
If you are dreaming of getting your hands on any of the three Samsung Galaxy A 2017 phones and live in the U.S., you might have to seek other means such as directly importing from China or Europe. As per the reports, the trio will not be sold in the U.S., just like its predecessors launched in 2015 and 2016.
