The Galaxy A series typically have their market debut around the turn of the year. The next additions will make no exception. Among intensifying leaks, the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) has gone to the FCC to pick up its US sales license.

The listing didn’t bring us any updates on the specs of the device. it just has the model designation A530N, outside of its dual-band Wi-Fi support but that was always an easy guess. It also confirmed that the Galaxy A5 (2018) will have an e-label for its FCC-mandated disclaimers, which should help get rid of a few ugly icons on the back of the phone.


Still, we know the 2018 editions of the A-series handsets will come with taller 18.5:9 ratio displays. This smartphone is planing to catch up to the flagship Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series. They will also feature rear-mounted fingerprint sensors. Also, they’ll be located under the camera, which seems more convenient than what the more premium series have.

Mid-range upgrades

And prior to that Android Authority reported that the phone would have a 5.5-inch Full HD+ display, 4GB of RAM, an Exynos 7885 or Snapdragon 660 chipset, dual front-facing cameras and a water-resistant build.

We’ve also heard that the next phones in the A range will get Samsung’s Bixby assistant.

None of this is confirmed yet, but we should know the final specs of the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) soon. As its predecessor was announced in January 2017, so the new model could be just a couple of months away.
