Ever since Samsung has launched its Galaxy A series, the brand has been able to tap the mid-range quite effectively. So much is the popularity of the lineup that the hype about 2017 variants of the Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 has been going through the roof with countless leaks and image renders. It seems now that the wait is finally about to get over as Samsung's certification for the Galaxy A3 (SMA320F) has been put up by the FCC. Various information about the handset including the model number and the FCC ID has been revealed by the brand. Amidst the rumors of these handsets coming out soon, we can now be sure that the South Korean brand will be starting the new year with a whole new generation of the Galaxy A series. They have already been certified by Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) and WiFi Alliance (WFA), and now the FCC certification is proof enough that January 2017 might see the influx of brand new devices from Samsung.
Coming to the specifications, the FCC leaks do not confirm anything apart from the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth tests. It is being speculated that the handset will come featuring a 4.7-inch display that will come with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. It is yet not clear that the device will feature the AMOLED display or not but it is pretty much given that it might. The processor driving the performance is expected to be a 1.5GHz Octa-core CPU and 3 GB of RAM. Running on the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system, it will also come with 12 Megapixels camera on the rear panel and 8 Megapixels on the front. If speculations are to be believed, Samsung will be pricing it in the range of INR 20,000 to INR 25,000. This will be a tough break for the device, since there are better devices available in this bracket.
