Last month Samsung announced two new devices at CES
This year was the year of the Galaxy Note 7, unfortunately for Samsung, not in the way it was anticipating. The handsets have now been banned from flights, and Samsung are seeding a software update that renders the device unusable.
Samsung though are marching on by announcing the 2017 models of their popular A3, A5 and A7 handsets at CES in Las Vegas.
The Samsung A3
, the lowest spec handset in their mid-range A-series, has a 4.7”, 720 x 1280 AMOLED display, Exynos 7870 Octacore processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB storage and runs Android Marshmallow. The camera is a 13MP, f/1.9 module. This is all powered by a 2350mAh non-removable battery. Find out more on the handset by clicking here
The Samsung A5
goes one step further with a 5.2”, 1080 x 1920 panel, Exynos 7880 Octacore chip, and 3GB RAM with its 32GB of storage. It also runs Android Marshmallow. The camera here is boosted to 16MP and the battery gets increased to 3000mAh unit. Find out more on the handset by clicking here
The final piece of the “A” jigsaw is the A7, which mirrors the spec of the A5 but for a bigger 5.7” screen and 3600 mAh battery.
All the 2017 A models are IP68 rated, sport USB type-C reversible charging ports, GPS, NFC and FM radio along with the usual WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities. Fingerprint scanners are in the usual Samsung position, at the bottom of the display.
