Samsung's mid-range phone, the Samsung Galaxy A5, is set to return very soon with a better design and improved features. Recent rumors suggest that the device will be coming with a 5.2-inch curved screen, much like displays of the South Korean tech giant's top-tier Samsung Galaxy Edge phones.

Currently, Samsung is the only brand that gives customers wrap-around, curved devices. The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) is expected to come with a 1080p, full-HD screen with Gorilla Glass 4. The tip reportedly comes from an Arab source. It is strongly believed that the display will make use of Samsung's AMOLED technology.

Aside from this, among its rumored features are 16-megapixel front and rear cameras, 32 GB of storage and 3 GB of RAM. It will be powered by a 3,000-mAh battery and it will have a fingerprint scanner and USB Type-C port. Furthermore, it will most likely be waterproof. The dual sim-capable Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) will be encased by an aluminum frame and will have a glass back cover.

As for the software, there is no news about it right now. However, GSM Arena reported that the Samsung Galaxy A5 might use the Exynos 7870. There is also a high chance that the chip will be updated. Should this be the case, the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) might utilize the Exynos 7880.

Since the most recent Samsung Galaxy A5 was released in December last year, rumors are rife that the new model will also come out in December this year. The phone has already passed certifications for the FCCB so it probably won't be long before it makes its way to the market. Stay tuned for more updates on the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017).
