A Samsung phone with model-number, SM-A530N, understood to be Galaxy A5 (2018), has been listed on the United States government-run FCC (Federal Communications Commission) and also received the necessary certifications, which are mandatory to get before it enters the market.
In the camera department, Galaxy J3 (2018) will come equipped with an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP selfie camera, both supporting Full HD video capture. Gradually, the lineup became pretty successful and the company is launching a number of Galaxy A smartphone models every year.
In terms of the specifications, the Samsung A5 (2018) is expected to come with a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 2160 pixel resolution.
Secondly, Samsung opened a dedicated support page for the same model number in South Korea, Samsung's home country. The smartphone has now been spotted on FCC, hinting at the imminent launch.
Samsung Galaxy A7 and A5 (2018) will likely launch in January, if one goes by the previous timeline for the A series. Continuing with its legacy in this area, it has recently come up with Exynos 9810 SoC, which is anticipated to be the chipset for Galaxy S9 and S9 plus, whose predecessors S8 and S8 plus were based on the Exynos 8895 processor, on which E 9810 appears to be an absolute victor.
The report adds the Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 got FCC approval on November 9. However, Exynos 9810 is the successor to Samsung's first Exynos 9 series chip - the 8895. Hopefully, we may also come across a dual-camera variant.
Back in 2014, Samsung announced the Galaxy Alpha under the new smartphone lineup - Galaxy A series.
If this truly is a miniature version of the S lineup, then we expect that the device would be released alongside the S9 and S9 Plus which are set to be debuted in the first quarter of 2018. Now we have to see what does the new Qualcomm chipset offers this year.
