Samsung’s Galaxy A smartphone lineup for 2017 is expected to launch on 5th of January. But all of its specifications, 3D renders and pricing has been leaked already.

We’re not 100% sure if all these specifications and prices are correct, but one thing is certain. These phones will be IP68-rated dust and water resistant. Which means that these could submerge under 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes.
