We’ve heard a lot of rumors and reports about the Galaxy A (2017) series from Samsung over the past couple of months. The company is yet to confirm when these devices will be officially released but word on the street is that Samsung is going to release the Galaxy A3 and the Galaxy A5 (2017) in mid-January. The new series was initially believed to be due for release in December 2016 but it seems unlikely now that Samsung will launch it in what’s left of 2016.
Roland Quandt, a Twitter leaker who has a good reputation, tweets that at least two models from the upcoming Galaxy A series are going to be released in mid-January. He mentions that the Galaxy A3 and the Galaxy A5 (2017) will be released in blue, black, gold, and pink gold in Western Europe next month.
It’s also mentioned that the Galaxy A3 (2017) and the Galaxy A5 (2017) will cost €349 and €449 respectively, unlocked and off-contract. Apparently, the Galaxy A7 (2017) won’t be released in Europe like the other two next month, but that doesn’t mean it won’t ever be released in that part of the world.
Quandt provides no information about the availability of the new Galaxy A series in other parts of the world. Samsung is yet to confirm pricing and launch details for these handsets so it would be best to take this information with a grain of salt until there’s some official information.
