Samsung Galaxy A5 2018 effectively confirmed via official website

Samsung Galaxy A5 2018 effectively confirmed via official website

From then, Samsung's been launching multiple Galaxy A smartphone models yearly, and it looks like this won't change in 2018.

The Galaxy A5 (2018) will sport a 5.5-inch Full HD+ Infinity display with a screen resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels, while the Galaxy A7 (2018) will feature a 6-inch Full HD+ display with a similar screen resolution.

And also, in a related development, Samsung has opened a dedicated support webpage with the same model number (SM-A530N) in its home country South Korea, further giving credence to the Galaxy A5 (2018) existence. According to the latest reports, the updated mid-range handset from Samsung will come close to the design and performance of the Galaxy S8 and Note 8 flagships. As for the release date, the FCC certification showed that the smartphone will arrive in January or February 2018. Federal Communications Commission, an independent agency of the U.S. Government, also hinted about the new smartphone's launch.

Citing "local news reports" in Korean media, The Investor asserts that next year's S9 devices will feature fingerprint sensors embedded on the rear of the devices. The leaked renders revealed that both the smartphones will come loaded with Infinity displays and dual front-facing cameras. It is speculated that this particular model of the A series will bag an improved camera, in comparison to its predecessors. The Exynos 8895 competes with Qualcomm's top-end Snapdragon 835 processor. Samsung's "Exynos 9810" chip is the successor to its first Exynos 9 series chip. Samsung has also been sitting quiet on revealing any details regarding the two newbies. The Galaxy S9 is also expected in Q1 2018 as well and Samsung will likely want to get the A-Series onto market first, so that should mean it'll be out very quickly after we ring in the New Year.
