Kicking Off 2017 with New Samsung Galaxy A Smartphones; Free Level U Pro Wireless Headsets!
Wow, it’s not even 2017 and Samsung is already going to release the new Samsung Galaxy A smartphones.
It’s New Year’s Eve! A lot of people are busy reminiscing the year that has past us all. Some of you like, and some of you don’t. The folks over at Samsung have already finalized their plans on their next smartphone in 2017.
Samsung has been teasing us with the “Hold Your Breath, A New Wave is Coming” ad and this appears to be it. It’s an obvious nod that the phone would be waterproof/water resistant and this pretty much confirms it.
New Samsung Galaxy A (2017) Smartphones
Samsung will be kicking off the new year with the unveiling of 2 new smartphones in the Samsung Galaxy A lineup. Those smartphones are the Samsung Galaxy A5 and the A7.
The new Samsung Galaxy A5 is a 5.2-inch smartphone with Full HD resolution and Super AMOLED display. The Galaxy A7 on the other hand is the bigger smartphone, at 5.5-inches, but it’s also with Full HD resolution and Super AMOLED display.
While we’re not too sure about the insides, online reports suggests that the A5 and A7 will be powered by the Exynos 7870 Octa and Exynos 7880 Octa respectively. However, one thing is for sure. Both of the Samsung Galaxy A smartphones are IP68 dust and water resistant.
Lee Jui Siang, Vice President of Mobile and IT Business Unit at Samsung Malaysia Electronics, said:
Samsung is focused on continuing to push the frontier of what’s possible to deliver innovation that matter. As a leader in the mobile industry, we designed the Samsung Galaxy A Series (2017) that suits the needs of trendy savvy consumers. The latest smartphones combine a premium design with a range of flagship benefits which includes IP68-rated dust and water resistant which is the first ever of its range.
Pre-Orders and Free Gift
The new Samsung Galaxy A smartphones, the Galaxy A5 and A7, will be available for pre-order starting 6th January 2017 at 10AM. This will continue until 15th January 2017 at selected Samsung stores.
The Samsung Galaxy A5 will be priced at RM1,699 while the Galaxy A7 will be priced at RM1,899. If you were to nab either of the Samsung Galaxy A smartphones during this pre-order sale, Samsung will throw in the Level U Pro wireless headset, worth RM399, for free.
Of course, both the phones and the free gift are limited in numbers so it’s on a first come-first serve basis.
Pokdepinion: Gotta admit, the naming of the device does leave me confused. Like, I’ll always think of the A5 being the same device we’ve seen all this while. I can’t personally say whether the Samsung Galaxy A smartphones are good or not until I’ve tried it myself. If you need to buy a new phone, I don’t see a reason why not to get yourself one though.
