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.

Starting with the FCC certification (via mobilexpose), it reveals that the smartphone will bear a model number of SM-A530N.

In more Samsung related news, the Galaxy A5 (2017) successor - Galaxy A5 (2018) has been confirmed through a listing on the Samsung South Korea website.

With this design change, it's obvious that Samsung aims to shift the fingerprint scanner to the back of the Galaxy A5 2018. Also, the leak revealed that the Galaxy A7 (2018) will receive 6GB of RAM.

Back in 2014, Samsung launched the Galaxy Alpha as an upper midrange smartphone.

Samsung will not only be coming out with A5, but also be working on releasing the Galaxy S9 ad S9+. The next-iteration of the A5 along with other A-series phones is expected to be announced in January 2018, probably around CES 2018.

Just like the rest of the Galaxy S devices before, the Galaxy S9 is expected to come with either Exynos or Snapdragon SoC, depending on where market you're located.

Apart from the display, the FCC also listing reveals the hardware and software details that the smartphone may ship with. This name is in accordance to the other smartphones of this series with the names such as SM-A500 for the original A5, SM-A510 for the A5 2016 and SM-A520 for the most recent A5 2017.

Also mentioned was the Samsung Isocell Slim 2X7: a 24MP image sensor with a super-tiny 0.9μm pixel size (Samsung says it's the smallest in the industry right now). So there is a chance the Galaxy A series for 2018 could come with a new "Infinity Display" without any home button on the front.
