Samsung unveiled its first smartphones since its Note 7 fiasco


Samsung announced Monday a new series of water and dust resistant phones. 

Monday's announcement marks the company's first product unveiling since its Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, which ended with a recall. 

The company's new Galaxy A series will offer a cost friendly alternative to the company's Galaxy S line, according to CNN.

The new Galaxy A3, A5, and A7 will feature a fingerprint sensor, metal frame and a 3D glass back.

Samsung released photos of the new phones, which will be available in four colors: black, gold, blue and peach.

The A3 will feature a 4.7-inch display while the A5 and A7 will have a 5.2-inch and a 5.7-inch display, respectively. 

Samsung's new edition should also be a win for selfie-lovers everywhere. The phones will include a 16-megapixel camera and users will be able to tap anywhere on the screen to snap a photo. 

Although the phone mimic's Samsung's Galaxy S line, it will provide less processing power than those phones and will only have 32GB of internal storage, CNN reports. 

Samsung hasn't released the price point for its new line of smartphones, but the Galaxy A series phones which debuted in 2014, start around $400, according to CNN. 

The new Galaxy A series will be available in Russia beginning in early January. The company said it will expand the phone's availability to global markets after that.
