Prior to the beginning of the New Year, rumors were already circulating about Samsung's plans to add some new members to its A Series for 2017. The company has since put those rumors to rest when they officially unveiled the "Galaxy A7", "Galaxy A5", and "Galaxy A3".

Per CNET, the new smartphones will be aimed towards young, trendy buyers who are looking for phones that won't cost them too much. The 2017 A Series comes with a few upgrades such as 16 megapixel front and rear facing cameras, IP68 dust and water resistance, and will have the Android 6.0.16 Marshmallow operating system. The only thing missing from this announcement were the retail prices of the brand new phones.

Fortunately, Samsung has released the pricing for two of the A Series phones, at least in the European market. The suggested retail price for the "Galaxy A3" will be €329, while the "Galaxy A5" will come with a suggested retail price of €429.

There was no mention of the 2017 version of the "Galaxy A7". Prior to the unveiling, there were rumors going around about how the biggest of the three new A models will not be sold in the European market. If this is any indication, then it appears that these rumors are indeed correct.

Russia will be the first to get the 2017 Galaxy A series phones as it will be available to them in a few days, according to a report by GSM Arena. The rest of Western Europe will have them by early February.

No release timeline has been given yet for the rest of the world, but it is expected to hit the Asian markets sometime by the end of January. A detailed list of the three new Galaxy A Series phones and their hardware specifications can be found on BGR.
