Samsung Galaxy A5 2018 effectively confirmed via official website

Read More Samsung Galaxy S7 Antutu Leak Confirms Hardware

The Galaxy A5 was recently spotted on Samsung's website by Roland Quandt, the handset is listed with the model number SM-A530N. Inspite this, we are looking forward to what the new Samsung Galaxy A5 will have in store for us.

Or rather, it's posted a page for the SM-A530, but given that the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) has the model number SM-A520 and the Galaxy A5 (2016) is the SM-A510 there's little doubt that this is the Galaxy A5 (2018).

Back in 2014, Samsung launched the Galaxy Alpha as an upper midrange smartphone. Also, the leak revealed that the Galaxy A7 (2018) will receive 6GB of RAM.

Now, Samsung is silently confirming the existence of a new A5 via a support page that's accessible on its official South Korean website. The phone could also have a rear fingerprint scanner, though the dual-rear camera might not make an appearance on the A5 smartphone.

The Galaxy A5 (2018) will sport a 5.5-inch Full HD+ Infinity display with a screen resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels, while the Galaxy A7 (2018) will feature a 6-inch Full HD+ display with a similar screen resolution.

Samsung is reportedly working on the next installment of its Galaxy A-series. The next-iteration of the A5 along with other A-series phones is expected to be announced in January 2018, probably around CES 2018.

In addition, the phone is also expected to have an IP68 certification for dust and water resistance. The most prominent one was, of course, the near bezel-less display screen, which mostly resembles what you see on the rugged Galaxy S8 Active, which doesn't come with curved edges like the S8, S8+ and Note 8.

But the Galaxy A series does mirror the design of the S sries and we've seen it come with a metal and glass design like the S6 and S7.
