Samsung’s upcoming mid-range device in the Galaxy A lineup was spotted at Geekbench a couple months ago running an Exynos 7885 processor as details popped up online about the specification of the device. While the device has already been listed on Bluetooth SIG with Bluetooth 5.0, the latest segment of news puts the rumors into action as we can almost be certain of the fact that the Galaxy A5 will feature an Infinity display.
A month, after leaked renders displayed Infinity Display on the Galaxy A5 (2018) and Galaxy A7 (2018), we’ve come to see that the HTML5 Test Website just listed an International variant of the upcoming Galaxy A5 device confirming the screen’s 18.5:9 aspect ratio instead of the traditional 16:9 aspect ratio. Bearing the model number SM-A530F, the Galaxy A5 (2018) will run the not-so-latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat and not Android Oreo out of the box.
The HTML5 listing thus indirectly confirms that forthcoming Galaxy A5 device will boast of an Infinity Display which means there won’t be any home button on the front. The fingerprint scanner will have to be displaced to the rear end of the device. Even though the Galaxy A (2018) will feature an Infinity Display, we can’t expect it to be as curved as the Galaxy S8 but designed in a similar way like that of the Galaxy S8 Active. This means that the costlier Galaxy A7 (2018) will also make use of the Infinity Display though Samsung is yet to comment on the feature officially.
