Samsung’s mid-range Galaxy A series is set to get a refresh in 2018 and the leaks are already pouring in. The company has confirmed the refresh on a support page of its South Korean website.

The phone has been rumoured to launch with infinity display like that of the Galaxy S8 and the S8+. Being midrange phones, Galaxy A series have always seen the premium S-series design trickling down to them the next year.

Renders released by Onleaks have also revealed the phone may come with a dual camera on the front rather than that on the back. At the back there appears a single camera, which is said to be have a 16MP sensor, along with the fingerprint scanner placed below it, which is obvious since the phone will not have the home button at front.

Like the 2017 models, the Galaxy A5 2018 will also come with water resistant design. But the design itself doesn’t sport curved display, but rather looks the LG G6. Given the fact that Samsung will continue the dual edge curved design on its premium phones, Galaxy S9 to be the next, the Galaxy A5 of the 2018 may end up being a usual run-of-the-mill device.

This is confirmed by FCC certification which lists some of the specs of the device. The Galaxy A5 2018 is set to come with a nearly bezel-less design. In fact killing the front home button is going to be a roaring trend with phones launching next year. 

The listing reveals Samsung A5 2018 could come with a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 2160 pixel resolution. This confirms the display will have an 18.5:9 aspect-ratio similar to that of the Galaxy Note 8, but again on a flat display.

Under the hood, the phone is expected to pack Samsung’s mid-range chipset -- Exynos 7885 with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage expandable via micro SD card. It will run the latest TouchWiz version, build on top of the Android 8.0 Oreo.
