Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) has been spotted on the FCC listing.

Starting with the FCC certification (via mobilexpose), it reveals that the smartphone will bear a model number of SM-A530N.

Apart from that, the GFX listing also reveals that the phone will come with all the necessary sensors like accelerometer, gyroscope and proximity sensor and other features like Bluetooth, GPS, and WiFi. A recent HTML test of the phone uncovered a display resolution of 412×816, which gives the phone an 18.5:9 aspect ratio, which is the same as the current flagships by Samsung.

Under-the-hood, it is said to house Samsung's proprietary Exynos 7885 processor backed by 4GB RAM. The sensor will be placed right below the rear camera setup.

Likewise, we know that Samsung will stick to the same pattern and launch the Galaxy A series smartphones next year too.

Though China has backed United Nations sanctions, Washington would like to see Beijing clamp down on unauthorised trade along the North Korean border.

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). That page apparently confirms the existence of the A5 (2018).

In addition, the phone is also expected to have an IP68 certification for dust and water resistance. No further details about the upcoming A series smartphone is known for the time being.

In related news, Samsung has begun releasing the November Android security patches to its Galaxy smartphones with Galaxy S5 (2017) being the first phone.

But the Galaxy A series does mirror the design of the S sries and we've seen it come with a metal and glass design like the S6 and S7. As expected from the Infinite Display design, the next Galaxy A7 handset is expected to lose the physical buttons and fingerprint reader on the front. Again we'll have to wait and see if this turns out to be true.
