Samsung Galaxy A5(2018) clears FCC

Samsung Galaxy A series is the mid-range premium one from the company with the A7, A5 and A3 usually being launched. Some people hoped that the upcoming model will have the fingerprint sensor embedded in the display, however, this seems less likely with every new report.

Samsung's new chipset Exynos 9810 will be powering the Samsung Galaxy S9 which is going to launch next year. We're looking at an all-screen phone with top and bottom bezels that appear to be far slimmer than the Galaxy S8's. A support page with the name Samsung SM-A530 has been listed on its official South Korean website. The new smartphone will probably run Android 8 Oreo out of the box.

Samsung Galaxy J series is the low priced series of Samsung.

What's it gonna look like?

Rumours are circulating that the Galaxy A5 that it will be receiving the Infinity Display treatment borrowed from the Samsung Galaxy S8. Apart from hinting at the imminent launch, the FCC listing also reveals that the smartphone will have a dual-band Wi-Fi support. It'll also have a Samsung Exynos 7885 processor inside, along with 4GB of RAM, while the bodywork will be water proofed. It suggests that the device will come with a model number - A530N and include a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

Samsung is now rolling out an update that will install the November 1, 2017 Android security patch to the units of the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) in the United Arab Emirates. The phone could also have a rear fingerprint scanner, though the dual-rear camera might not make an appearance on the A5 smartphone. Although, they did not go ahead to confirm any of the specifications.

Of course, none of this is confirmed yet, but we should know the final specs of the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) soon, as its predecessor was announced in January 2017, so the new model could be just a couple of months away.
