2016 was surely not the best year for Samsung, especially with all Galaxy Note 7 issues that it had. It seems that the company is trying to move on and make users forget all that happened during the past year. At the CES 2017 event, Samsung has announced its upcoming Galaxy A3 2017, Galaxy A5 2017 and Galaxy A7 2017 handsets.
Unfortunately, none of the mentioned handsets will be released in the US, but Samsung wanted to bring a few of them to show off at CES 2017.
The Galaxy A3 2017 measures 135.4×66.2×7.9mm, the Galaxy A5 2017 146.1×71.4×7.9mm and the Galaxy A7 2017 156.8×77.6×7.9mm. All three devices have Gorilla Glass on both sides.
One of the things that you will notice when you will see these three devices in front of your device is their sizes. Below we will list the display sizes and the supported resolution:
- Galaxy A3 2017: 4.7-inch @ 1280×720 pixels;
- Galaxy A5 2017: 5.2-inch @ 1920×1080 pixels;
- Galaxy A7 2017: 5.7-inch @ 1920×1080 pixels.

However, the Galaxy A3 2017 also comes with great features and specifications, and the fans of smartphones with small displays will still pick it up instead of the other big-sized smartphones.
