The new Galaxy A (2017) lineup is going to be announced on January 5. The date has been confirmed officially by Samsung via press invites and social media posts. And while we saw the Galaxy A5 (2017) and A7 (2017) make appearances on a pre-order poster, we still know nothing about those.

Samsung is starting off the new year with a bang, namely with several new phone releases. This time it’s the mid-range Galaxy A 2017 series, with the A3, the A5, and the A7. All three phones seem reasonably similar, using aluminum construction and glass backs, with features such as fingerprint scanners, Micro SD card slots, and Samsung Pay present.




But there is more good news. A Samsung Malaysia’s VP of Mobile and IT Business Unit Lee Jui Siang has also commented on the water resistance – indeed the hints were read correctly and all Galaxy A (2017) phones will be IP68-certified.
