    You might wonder why Samsung decides to release a phone in 2017 with Marshmallow instead of Nougat.
    Even though the A3 is a midranger and many of Samsung’s followers are as mindless as Apple’s followers, anyone going for midrange or higher midrange rather than the highend phones would probably look a little at price vs specifications(price would probably be the reason to not get the highend) and quickly rule the A3 out as something Samsung won’t bother to update in the future if they can’t even bother to release it with the latest Android more than a half year after other Samsung phones got the said update.
    For me, this is a no-no.

    I am also wondering if these models will support wireless charging? Or has Samsung made this a standard in all of the models that they’ve released or will be releasing?
