The next-generation Galaxy A series smartphones from Samsung namely the Galaxy A5, and the Galaxy A7 2018 are expected to feature a near edge-to-edge Infinity Display. According to recent reports, the Galaxy A (2018) devices will be much like the flagship Galaxy S8/S8+ and the Galaxy Note 8 in terms of the display and front design.
Samsung is planning to launch its Galaxy A (2018) series in early 2018 and they are rumored to feature an infinity display. A new report from a testing website HTML5test.com confirms that the upcoming Galaxy A5 (2018) and A7 (2018) will indeed come with the Infinity display bringing near edge-to-edge screens with an unusual 18.5:9 aspect ratio like the Galaxy S8.
To recall, Galaxy S8 was the first device from Samsung with an Infinity Display. The phone has minimum bezels and doesn’t feature the physical home button. Now, if the rumors are true, the Galaxy A5 (2018) is getting the same display. We can also assume that the Galaxy A7 (2018) will also get the similar display as Samsung always maintains uniformity.
Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) Specifications
As per the listing, an international unlocked variant bearing model number SM-A530F has been tested and it could be the Galaxy A5 (2018). The listing reveals the screen resolution of 846 x 412 pixels resolution which confirms the 18.5:9 aspect ratio. It is to be noted that all previous Galaxy A5 (2017) or other Galaxy A series phones feature the conventional 16:9 aspect ratio display.
With the new design, we expect that there won’t be a physical home button on the front. Also, the fingerprint sensor would be relocated to the back panel below the camera module.
Further, the website listing also reveals that the alleged Galaxy A5 has been tested with Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system. This also confirms some previous reports that the Galaxy A (2018) series will come with Android Nougat and not the Oreo update. Other specifications of the Galaxy A5 (2018) have not been revealed yet.
