Samsung appears to working on three more handsets from its popular A-series namely the Galaxy A3 (2017), Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A7 (2017). The report holds some water as the 2016 iteration of these devices were released in December last year.
The South Korean technology giant is tight-lipped on its upcoming devices, but SamMobile has claimed in a report that the Galaxy A3 (2017), Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A7 (2017) are in the offing. It would come as a surprise if they come in December, as its predecessors were released at this time of the year.
The report claimed that the 2017 iteration of the handsets bear the code name SM-A320F (Galaxy A3 2017), SM-A520F (Galaxy A5 2017) and SM-A720F (Galaxy A7 2017). In fact, the device with code name SM-A520F has been spotted on Zauba, a website that tracks imports and exports in India, for testing.
Not much is known on the specifications of these devices, but they are expected to have several feature upgrades over their predecessors considering the fact that the 2016 iterations were much superior to the first iterations.
