Design & display

A striking resemblance

Impressive display

Enjoy high definition photos, films and games with the Galaxy A3’s 4.7-inch display. The Gorilla Glass-protected screen features Samsung’s trademark Super AMOLED technology too, to make sure everything stands out. 

Camera

13MP rear camera

The A3 (2017)’s 13MP camera is packed with great features to make sure your photos look great. And it can be launched with a quick double tap of the home button, to capture all those fleeting moments.  

Selfie cam

On the front of the smartphone is a powerful 8MP sensor for selfies and video calls. Simply swipe up on the camera screen and the phone will switch the cameras for quicker shots.  


Under the hood

Big on power

A powerful 1.6GHz octa-core processor is built into the A3 (2017) to make sure you’re not slowed down by even the most demanding games and movies. If that’s not enough, the processor is backed up by 2GB RAM. 

Go longer between charges

Despite the A3’s small size, it doesn’t compromise on battery capacity. There’s a 2,350mAh cell on board, and with the new Type-C USB technology, you’ll be able to charge up quicker than ever.
