Samsung quietly confirms the new Galaxy A5

Read More Samsung Details Exynos 5422 5260 Chipsets

The original Samsung Galaxy A5 that was launched in 2014 carried a model number SM-A500. Samsung was criticized before for the awkward placement of the fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S8 and Note 8.

Our first sight of the alleged Samsung Galaxy A5 2018 happened back in August, where a case supposedly meant for the phone was accidentally listed on Amazon. Apart from hinting at the imminent launch, the FCC listing also reveals that the smartphone will have a dual-band Wi-Fi support.

The Galaxy A5 (2018) is expected to boast 5.5-inch screen having full HD+ (2160x1080p) resolution and 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Samsung Galaxy A5's model number has also been spotted on Samsung's official website. The device is also said to be powered by Exynos 7885 processor and come coupled with 4GB of RAM. Samsung's "Exynos 9810" chip is the successor to its first Exynos 9 series chip.

Samsung Galaxy A series is the mid-range premium one from the company with the A7, A5 and A3 usually being launched.

Previous leaks have indicated that Samsung is planning to bring its "Infinity Display" technology to budget smartphones with the Galaxy A5 (2018) when an image showing the cover case of Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) has popped up on Weibo, a Chinese microblogging website. As for now, the only concrete details for major upgrades on the Galaxy S9 relate to the device's rear camera sensors. We've seen some leaks from OnLeaks and MySmartPrice, showing the handsets with a familiar design, smaller bezels, and a fingerprint sensor placed below the camera. The leaked renders revealed that both the smartphones will come loaded with Infinity displays and dual front-facing cameras.

In addition, the phone is also expected to have an IP68 certification for dust and water resistance.
