Samsung has unveiled three mid-range Galaxy A smartphones that are the first in the series to boast USB-C.
The 2017 Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 feature a Galaxy S7-style metal frame complete with IP68 dust/waterproof certification, a built-in microSD slot with support for cards up to 256GB, and USB-C connectivity, following in the footsteps of the Galaxy Note 7.
The Galaxy A7 is the highest-spec of the three handsets, packing a 5.7in Full HD Super AMOLED display and a 3,600mAh battery pack, while the Galaxy A5 offers a smaller 5.2in screen and a 3,000mAh battery.
Both handsets feature a 1.9GHz octa-core processor with 3GB RAM, 16MP front and rear cameras, 32GB built-in storage and Fast Charging support.
The Samsung Galaxy A3 is the least exciting of the bunch, featuring a 4.7in HD display, a 1.6GHz octa-core processor with 6GB RAM, a dual 13MP and 8MP camera set-up and a 2,350mAh battery.
All three handsets arrive running Google's last-gen Android 6.0 Marshmallow software and offer support for Samsung Pay. The trio will be made available in Black Sky, Gold Sand, Blue Mist and Peach Cloud.
DJ Koh, president of Samsung's mobile business, said: "At Samsung, we are always trying to ensure our customers have the most advanced products on the market.
"The latest Galaxy A series is a testament to this. We integrated our unique approach to design as well as the features Galaxy customers have come to love to provide added performance without compromising on style."
The Galaxy A (2017) series will make its debut in Russia this month, before rolling out globally. Samsung has yet to confirm pricing details.
Vodafone has confirmed that it will be offering the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A3 (2017) in the UK. µ
