Samsung Galaxy A5 And Its Infinity Display Leaked
There have been multiple reports that Samsung’s flagship feature, the Infinity Display will trickle down to its mid-range devices in 2018. The Galaxy A series is Samsung’s mid-range lineup which has always boasted of some good specifications and camera performances. The Galaxy A5 (2018) will apparently sport a bezel-less display as well and new leaked images reveal just that.
One of the main concerns for future Galaxy A5 suitors has to be the fingerprint sensor. Not the quality of it, but, the placement. From the leaked images, it appears that Samsung seems to have fixed that issue. On the Galaxy A5 2018, the fingerprint sensor will be placed below the single camera lens.
Another interesting thing to note in the images is that isolated button on the left side of the phone just below the volume rockers. It seems like the infamous Bixby button will also trickle down to the mid-rangers. Upon its release, the AI assistant from Samsung received a lot of flak for being a less useful version of Google Assistant and a hardware button on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note8 dedicated to Bixby was a clear push by the company. A few days after the launch of the Galaxy S8 and S8+, Samsung even stopped the remapping of the button.
The Galaxy A5 (2018) will probably officially launch in January, along with the Galaxy A7 (2018). It should sport the Exynos 7885 SoC or the Snapdragon 660 (depending on market). The device could have either 4GB or 6GB of RAM along with expandable storage. While Android 8.0 Oreowas officially released back in August, don’t be surprised if the two phones launching in 2018 will still run Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
