Earlier today, a rather curious teaser (shown above) was published on the official Facebook page and Twitter account of Samsung Mobile Malaysia. Interestingly, a quick check through Samsung Mobile’s Facebook pages for other parts of Southeast Asia such as Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Philippines showed no such teaser.
Not only that, it is also absent from the company’s global Facebook page as well as several other major markets including India, US, UK, Germany, and Russia. With that, we believe it is likely that this teaser is unique to Malaysia, at least at the time this article is published.

So, what this teaser is all about? Well, the theory we have at the moment is that it might be related to the 2017 edition of Galaxy A series smartphones given how the first sentence of the teaser focuses on the letter A and the accompanying hashtag helps strengthen this theory.
To make matters more interesting, the second sentence and graphics in the teaser seems to point at water-resistance capability. This is in line with a set of leaks that came from Iran earlier this month which include a presentation slide that mentioned IP68 rating.
For now, there is no concrete signs on when or even where Samsung’s Galaxy A 2017 smartphones will make their official debut. If our theory regarding Samsung Mobile Malaysia’s teaser is correct, then the launch date must not be that far off though.
