Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) spotted on official website; early 2018 launch likely

The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) is powered by the Exynos 7880 chipset which is comprised of an octa-core ARM Cortex A53 64-bit CPU clocked at up to 1.9GHz and the Mali-T830MP3 GPU. As for the release date, the FCC certification showed that the smartphone will arrive in January or February 2018.

Samsung Galaxy S5 2018 listed on Samsung's website now. The FCC listing for Galaxy A5 (2018) was reported by MobileExpose, which points out the phone has the following FCC ID: A3LSMA530N. This has just also been revealed recently through an HTML5 test. These specifications are nearly similar to that of Galaxy S8 Active that was released in the U.S. Location of its fingerprint recognition sensor is moved below of its rear camera as its home button is removed. The sensor will be placed right below the rear camera setup. It is speculated that this particular model of the A series will bag an improved camera, in comparison to its predecessors. Other hardware details of the upcoming flagship include an Exynos 9810, which is going to be manufactured on the second-generation 10nm FinFET node. Each year the phones sport an upgrade in terms of design and specifications, though these don't run the high-end processors like the Samsung Galaxy S series or the Note series. These 2018's flagship phones have been subjected to several leaks and rumours already.

Unlike on the Galaxy S8 where the scanner appears on one side of the lens in a horizontal arrangement, the scanner will appear right below the lens on the Galaxy S9 in what would be a vertical arrangement. S9 and S9+ will be a lot similar to the S8 phones, apart from some differences on the hardware and software front. No smartphone manufacturers come with major changes two years in a row and probably Samsung won't either.
