Samsung had kept the Infinity Display affair to its flagship smartphones itself. We’re yet to see a mid-range or budget Samsung smartphone with 18:9 display, but thankfully, that’s going to change in a few weeks from now. Samsung’s popular mid-range lineup, the Galaxy A series will soon get three smartphones- the Galaxy A3 (2018), Galaxy A5 (2018), and Galaxy A7 (2018).
Several rumours cite that the entire Samsung Galaxy A (2018) lineup will come with Samsung’s Infinity Display tech, which is an 18:5:9 aspect ratio display. A UK-based retailer Mobile Fun gave some high-resolution renders of the upcoming Galaxy A5 (2018) to Sammobile, and the renders show off the mid-range smartphone in full glory.
Earlier, it was just predicted by some top analysts that Samsung would use the Infinity display tech in Galaxy A (2018) smartphones, but it now looks like the company is already working the smartphones. So, with a tall 18:5:9 display on the front, the fingerprint scanner on these smartphones is moved to the back of the phone, below the rear camera module. Sadly, the Galaxy A5 (2018) has a single rear camera and not dual camera setup.
However, Samsung has been silent on these rumours. Going by the previous launches of Galaxy A lineup, the South Korean company might announce the Galaxy A (2018) smartphones in January 2018. Also, the products in the Galaxy A lineup will be differentiated with screen size and battery capacity. Sadly, there’s no other information available on the smartphones such as display size, processor, cameras, etc.
Some rumours also suggest that Samsung is looking to rename the Galaxy A5 (2018) and A7 (2018) as Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8 Plus (2018). Nevertheless, there’s no concrete information on the renaming part though. Samsung is known for changing the expected product names at the last time. Probably, Samsung is considering this move to match the year and make it easier for the consumers to remember the name of its smartphones.
