The rumors about Samsung planning to release an upgraded version of their previously released smartphone, the Galaxy A5, have been circulating online for quite some time now. People have been debating what kind of features and specifications the new handset will have but with nothing to actually base their predictions on. That is no longer the case as press renders that were leaked made room for some realistic predictions that should excite some awaiting users.
The leaks contain information on the device’s exterior as well as what’s under the hood. Starting with the former, users can rest assured that the Galaxy A5 2017 will offer multiple color variations. These are blue, gold, pink and of course, the standard black.
It’s time to get technical as we dive deep to see what the A5 will come with in terms of specs. The smartphone will feature a 5.2 inch display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. The processing duties will be handled by an Exynos 7880 processing chip, provided by Samsung. The octa core unit will feature a 1.8 GHz frequency and will be paired with a Mali-T860 MP4 graphics processing unit. The pair will receive support from the implemented 3 GB of RAM and the total internal storage capacity of 32 GB.
To round things up, there will also be a 16 MP camera on each panel, showing that Samsung means business. The 3000 mAH battery unit will attempt to keep everything running for a reasonable amount of time.
As you can see from these specifications, the Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 will most likely be a mid-ranged device, looking to cater to audiences other than the regular top tier, high end flagship consumers.
The phone’s price tag should reflect that as well, but as we near the 2017 CES event ( where the A5 will presumably get its official announcement), it looks like users will have to shell out around $390 for this unit.
