Samsung announces Exynos 9810 flagship processor likely to power Galaxy S9

Read More Samsung Details Exynos 5422 5260 Chipsets

We're nearly definite the Samsung Galaxy A5 and its other siblings, the Galaxy A7 and Galaxy A3, will boast an Infinity Display among other notable features.

Twitter user Roland Quandt had pointed this out and the model number for the Galaxy A5 is listed as SM-A530N.

Or rather, it's posted a page for the SM-A530, but given that the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) has the model number SM-A520 and the Galaxy A5 (2016) is the SM-A510 there's little doubt that this is the Galaxy A5 (2018). The support page - for what should be - the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) has appeared on Samsung Korea's official website; indicating it won't be long before the device in released. The Galaxy S9 is months away, yet Samsung just announced the Exynos 9 Series 9810 flagship processor that is likely to underpin it.

Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates! The device sports a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 by 1080. This included a hint that the screen could be near edge-to-edge similar to the iPhone X. Apart from the display being like the Galaxy S8-like, FCC also reveals the details of the hardware as well as the software.

The report adds the Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 got FCC approval on November 9. The smartphone has now been spotted on FCC, hinting at the imminent launch. The phone could also have a rear fingerprint scanner, though the dual-rear camera might not make an appearance on the A5 smartphone.

In addition, the phone is also expected to have an IP68 certification for dust and water resistance. As expected from the Infinite Display design, the next Galaxy A7 handset is expected to lose the physical buttons and fingerprint reader on the front.

Previous years have seen the Galaxy A-Series launching VERY early in the calendar, so we're expecting it to arrive soon inside 2018. Again we'll have to wait and see if this turns out to be true.
