Nearly a year after Samsung announced its Snapdragon 410 (Exynos 7578 in some markets) toting low- end handset the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016), the company is all set to launch the 2017 edition of the handset. We have exclusive renders of the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) sent to us by our friends at @OnLeaks. Before we talk about the phone, here are the all-important images of the new handset.

Like its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) will feature entry-level specifications. While we have not yet been told about the SoC that the new handset would use, what we do know is that this 2017 edition of the phone would feature a USB Type-C port. The display size also remains unchanged from last years model. We are talking about a 4.7-inch panel that overflows very slightly on right and left edges. The phone is 7.89 mm thin (Dimensions: 133.69 x 65.22 x 7.89 mm). Samsung Galaxy A3 is the low-end model in the A series which have A5 (2017) and A7 (2017) models too.
We also have a video showing a 360-degree view of the handset.

This is not the first time that we have heard of the Galaxy A3 (2017). The handset had made its appearance on the Bluetooth SIG website (for certification) as well as on Geekbench a month ago. The Geekbench listing indicates that the phone would come with a 1.5GHz octa-core Qualcomm CPU, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory (expandable further using microSD cards), a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, and an 8MP selfie shooter. The handset is also likely to get a variety of internal sensors, including a pedometer and a barometer. When launched, the handset will come preloaded with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. This should get updated to the subsequent versions of Android later.
So what do you think about these renders?
