The Galaxy “A” series of smartphones is the premium mid-range lineup of Samsung that inherits traits of the flagship lineup. Previously, it was the metal-glass design and the IP 68 ratings that made it to the yesteryear models. These phones debut right at the start of the year. And this year, leaks say, the coming changes will be interesting.
Now, the Galaxy A5 2018 has already appeared on Geekbench with an all-new Exynos 7885 chipset. But today we’re looking at design-related rumours. The leak comes from a Twitter user who calls himself “@mmjd_china,” and it shows just the upper part of the rear. The alleged rear panel of the A series phone now has a fingerprint reader which means one thing. The traditional front layout will not be there. All this adds up to one thing. The next galaxy A series will have an Infinity Display. It also shows a single rear camera which means it is a bit too early for a dual camera to make an appearance on the device. The leak tips the phone to have an 18:9 aspect ratio with a Full HD+ resolution.
Another leaked render shows the case of the Galaxy A5 2018. And it doesn’t give away many new details, except that there is a Bixby button cut out. It’s strange but we are already starting to hear groans from our readers. Although the good news is Samsung will be allowing users to disable the Bixby button. Moreover, you will be relieved to hear Samsung is not doing away with the 3.5mm headphone jack, not yet. Earlier leaks have caught the A5 2018 with a Snapdragon 660 + 4 GB RAM as well as an Exynos 7885.
The aforementioned leakster has other stuff related to the upcoming A series, you might want to check that out.
