Samsung Updates Its Galaxy A Series For The New Year Ahead Of CES 2017

Samsung is resisting the urge to make new smartphones and instead focusing on revamping its existing range with every New Year. Just like it did before, it has announced upgraded smartphones in its Galaxy A series. The Korean electronics company has announced the latest Galaxy A series which includes the 5.7-inch A7, 5.2-inch A5 and the 4.7-inch A3. While its J series it aimed at first-time smartphone users, the A series will appease to the well-heeled smartphone buyer with its premium metal frame and 3D glass rear. The A series smartphones will be available in Black Sky, Gold Sand, Blue Mist and Peach Cloud colour variants. The 2017 A series smartphone are certified IP 68 dust and water resistant which means if you are a bit careless with your smartphone it will be okay. The A Series will now be equipped with ‘Always On’ Display which works just like Nokia Glance Display and USB Type C connectivity. The new smartphones also come with Samsung Pay and their front cameras can take help from the bright AMOLED display to serve as the screen flash. All the three Android Marshmallow smartphones in this series will have a fingerprint sensor on the home button along with Samsung Secure Folder technology. Let’s take a look at the three smartphone one by one in the following paragraphs.
