However, it follows a logical progression from the first Galaxy A5 (SM-500) to this year's model (SM-520).
Previous leaks have indicated that Samsung is planning to bring its "Infinity Display" technology to budget smartphones with the Galaxy A5 (2018) when an image showing the cover case of Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) has popped up on Weibo, a Chinese microblogging website.More news: Kim Kardashian throws a baby shower

Of course, 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. Gradually, the lineup became pretty successful and the company is launching a number of Galaxy A smartphone models every year. The Samsung Galaxy A5 is expected to come with a 5.5-inch 1080x2160 pixel and a 18:9 ratio display. Federal Communications Commission, an independent agency of the U.S. Government, also hinted about the new smartphone's launch. Like the premium Galaxy S and the Note series, the upcoming device will also have a fingerprint sensor on the back, but it will be placed below the camera module. If rumours are to be believed, then the phone could also run on the latest OS- Oreo software. Apart from the FCC certification, the South Korean website also authenticated the arrival of the A5. Both the rear and front cameras of the handset are equipped with a 16-megapixel sensor with an aperture size of f/1.9. Although, they did not go ahead to confirm any of the specifications. Samsung's "Exynos 9810" chip is the successor to its first Exynos 9 series chip. The Exynos 8895 competes with Qualcomm's top-end Snapdragon 835 processor.
As we get closer to 2018, you should expect more and more Galaxy S9 leaks and rumors, as Samsung prepares to launch its next flagship handset.
