Samsung has been rapidly improving it’s midrange offerings for quite some time now, and nowhere is that more evident than this year’s (2017) new A Series. Clad in similar clothing to the popular Galaxy S7 line, it also inherits one of it’s newest features: IP68 Water & Dust Resistance. This will give consumers peace of mind when taking this out for a spin at the beach, pool, in the rain, or even just your lowly YouTube-watching daily shower. They also pack 16MP f1.9 cameras both front and back for great selfies and travel photos. Interested? Check out our quick video preview embedded above or more of it’s specs and availability below!
