The Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 which made an unofficial appearance back in November with leaked images that looked very similar to the design line of Galaxy S6 Edge devices has hit the rumor mill again with leaked specifications.
The leaked Galaxy A5 specs come from an Arabic source and they fully support the previously leaked images of the phone which showcased a 2.5D (curved) display and a glass back on the details. Check out the full specs below:

- RAM: 3GB

While the leaked specs confirm Galaxy A5’s display being a curved screen, we can’t tell you for sure if the device will feature EDGE screen features like Samsung’s more premium devices does. However, we personally believe that Edge features will be available on the A5 2017, because it basically looks like a Galaxy S6 Edge clone in the images. And Samsung has every reason to keep the S6 Edge design rolling, it was simply beautiful.
Also, the Galaxy A5 2017 will be waterproof and feature the latest in tech like USB Type-C port, Fingerprint scanner, Aluminium device frame and stuff.
On the speed side of things, the Galaxy A5 2017 will be featuring 3GB RAM. There’s no detail on the type of processor used on the device yet though.
The most interesting take from the leaked Galaxy A5 2017 specs is the camera setup on the device. As per leak, the A5 2017 will be featuring 16MP camera on both front and back of the device. This is more interesting when you add to it the leaked Galaxy C7 Pro specs from yesterday, which revealed a similar camera setup of 16MP on both sides of the device.
Galaxy A5 2017 Release Date (expected)
Since Samsung generally releases Galaxy A series devices by the end of year, we wouldn’t be surprised if the device releases on or before Christmas of 2016. If not, then January 2017 is likely the release date period for Galaxy A5 2017.
Also, we have already seen the device in what looked like finalized design in the leaked images. So it isn’t too enthusiastic to believe that the release might be a couple of weeks away.
