Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) gets FCC nod; mid-range Android phone launch imminent


Likewise, we know that Samsung will stick to the same pattern and launch the Galaxy A series smartphones next year too. Just like the company has done in the past, in terms of design and software, the same can be said about the upcoming Galaxy A5 2018 edition, which is said to borrow a few notable features form its older siblings.

The new smartphone will come with an Infinity Display which curves around the edges of the device, the same type of screen we can see on the Galaxy S8 smartphone.

This denotes the primary year where Samsung has won in the CES Innovation Award classification of Fitness, Sports and Biotech for the Gear Sport, Gear Fit2 Pro, and Gear IconX (2018). The FCC listing for Galaxy A5 (2018) was reported by MobileExpose, which points out the phone has the following FCC ID: A3LSMA530N. Earlier, a new HTML5 test listing also seemingly confirmed the same. Apart from that, the phone will also come with the Exynos 7885 chipset, Bluetooth 5.0 (which is quite handy, since the S8 was the first smartphone to feature the device and the battery saving capabilities of the tech will make for a consumer's delight).

The phone will also come with 4GB of memory and 32GB of internal storage, expandable to up to 256GB of storage. Like the premium Galaxy S and the Note series, the upcoming device will also have a fingerprint sensor on the back, but it will be placed below the camera module.

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).

Talking about the actual specifications of the Galaxy J3 (2017), the phone has a display of 5 inches with 720×1280 pixels.

Back in 2014, Samsung announced the Galaxy Alpha under the new smartphone lineup - Galaxy A series. These 2018's flagship phones have been subjected to several leaks and rumours already.
