From then, Samsung's been launching multiple Galaxy A smartphone models yearly, and it looks like this won't change in 2018.
Last week we heard that the new Galaxy A5 would come with an Infinity Display, this is the same display used in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. But, it is confirmed that the Galaxy A5 (2018) will have an e-label for its FCC-mandated disclaimers, avoiding icons on the back of the phone.
The image shows that the handset sports the extended 18:9 aspect ratio display, previously seen only with flagship smartphone Galaxy S8 and flagship phablet Note 8.
Under-the-hood, it is said to house Samsung's proprietary Exynos 7885 processor backed by 4GB RAM.
Samsung's A series of smartphones usually launch around the turn of the year, and 2018 editions are expected to follow the steps. The FCC listing for Galaxy A5 (2018) was reported by MobileExpose, which points out the phone has the following FCC ID: A3LSMA530N.
Just like the rest of the Galaxy S devices before, the Galaxy S9 is expected to come with either Exynos or Snapdragon SoC, depending on where market you're located.
Also mentioned was the Samsung Isocell Slim 2X7: a 24MP image sensor with a super-tiny 0.9μm pixel size (Samsung says it's the smallest in the industry right now). S9 and S9+ will be a lot similar to the S8 phones, apart from some differences on the hardware and software front. It is also noteworthy that Samsung hasn't revealed any details about these upcoming smartphones as of yet.
Samsung's sure to make a big splash with the Galaxy S9 early next year, but it also has a new mid-ranger on the way, in the form of the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018).
