Announced internationally at the start of the year, the Galaxy A7 (2017) and the Galaxy A5 (2017) officially debuts in the Philippines.

Galaxy A (2017) Series

A few days after it was announced internationally, Samsung brings in the new Galaxy A (2017) series to the country. The series actually has three variants, but only two will make it here – the A7 (2017) with a 5.7-inch display, and the A5 (2017) with a 5.2-inch display. The smaller (and presumably cheaper) A3 (2017) was not included in the launch.

The Galaxy A7 (2017) and A5 (2017) feature design elements found in Samsung’s more expensive flagships. The new smartphones boast IP68 dust and water resistance, meaning it can withstand submerged in 1.5 meters of fresh water for up to 30 minutes. Aside from the added protection, the phones also feature metal frames and 3D glass backs.
