The 2017 Galaxy A line up just like the 2016 edition retains the premium metal and glass design, but the back is more curvier and speaker grille is moved to the right side. It also gets IP68 certification, same rating as Galaxy S7, which means the phones can withstand rain, sweat, sand and dust.

There's 16MP f/1.9 cameras at front and back "resulting in vibrant and clear photos and selfie even in low-light conditions" according to Samsung. While taking selfies from front camera the screen will work as a front facing flash module for brighter photos.

The Galaxy A7 2017 has the same specs as Galaxy A5 2017, but comes with a larger 5.7-inch Full HD display and a beefier 3600mAh battery.

They all  include microSD card slot for storage expansion, USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer, fingerprint scanner, fast charging, 4G LTE support, WiFi 802.11ac and NFC (Near Field Communication) & MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) support for Samsung Pay for safe and secure mobile payments.
