Samsung launched the 2017 Galaxy A series, the 5.7-inch A7, 5.2-inch A5 and 4.7-inch A3 smartphones at its new Dubai Media City office today.
Pricing and availability
The Galaxy A will be available at all major retailers in the UAE on January 12 starting at Dh1,149 for the Galaxy A3, Dh1,449 for the Galaxy A5 and Dh1,749 for the Galaxy A7.
At first glance, both the cheaper A3 and mid-range A7 are devices that have a premium, solid feel. They are well built and seem like they should be value for money.
While the specs and OS can be judged when we review the devices, there are two things we were impressed to see.
This has generally been a feature reserved for high-end devices for some time now. Now you don’t need spend Dh2,500 to have a phone you can merrily take for a swim.
While this isn’t confirmed news, apparently Samsung Gulf is working on Samsung Pay coming to the UAE.
