The Galaxy A 2017 series sports metal frame and 3D glass back to give it a premium look. All the three phones have Samsung Pay, LTE connectivity, USB Type-C connectivity and fingerprint scanner. They will be running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. The 2017 series will be available in four different color options: Black Sky, Gold Sand, Blue Mist and Peach Cloud.
