When Samsung Galaxy A3 2017, Galaxy A5 2017 and Galaxy A7 2017 were unveiled at the beginning of this year, the first market to see the trio was Russia. But since then, the series has been launched in Malaysia, Brazil and just recently, the UK.
Now, even though Samsung did not give out a clear roadmap of how the Galaxy A 2017 series will be launched in different markets across the globe, the company is slowly pushing the phones into different markets, with the latest to join the party being Asia’s Indonesia. Unlike the UK where only Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 and Galaxy A5 2017 were launched, the South Korean tech giant will be selling all three models of the A 2017 series in Indonesia, including the A7 2017.
This is great news for those in the Asian country as they will now be able to get their hands on what are arguably the best midrange smartphones in the market right now. To get your hands on either of the three phones, you’ll need Rp 3,999 million for the Galaxy A3 2017, which is about $299; Rp 4,999 for the Galaxy A5 2017 or about $375; and Rp 5,999 for the high-end Galaxy A7 2017, which is equivalent to $450.
Just as a reminder, the Galaxy A3 2017 ships with the smallest form factor that includes a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with 720p resolution, an Exynos 7870 SoC clocked at 1.6GHz, 2GB RAM, 16GB of expandable storage and a 2350mAh battery. The back has a 13MP camera while the front has an 8MP lens for selfies. As for the design language, it looks the same as the rest of the handsets in the series.
Those who opt for the midrange Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 will get a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED screen with Full HD resolution, an Exynos 7880 SoC clocked at 1.9GHz, 3GB RAM, 32GB of expandable storage and a larger 3000mAh battery unit. In terms of cameras, you get 16MP shooters on both ends of the phone, which makes it one of the best in the industry, especially when looking at the selfie side of things.
The high-end Samsung Galaxy A7 2017 ships with the largest screen size of 5.7 inches, but it keeps the same resolution, processor, RAM, storage capacity as well as camera specs that are found on the Galaxy A5 2017. However, the battery is larger at 3600mAh, which should be one of the major selling points of the phone.
As noted earlier, all three phones have the same design language that includes IP68 water and dust resistance certification. You’ll also come across Android Marshmallow out of the box on the trio, although an update to Android Nougat should be made available at some point in future.
