Starting with the FCC certification (via mobilexpose), it reveals that the smartphone will bear a model number of SM-A530N. The page mentions an un-announced device labelled as the Samsung SM-A530, which fits in perfectly with the naming progression of the Galaxy A5, from the original SM-A500, through to 2016's and 2017's models as the SM-A510 and SM-A520 respectively - clearly the SM-A530 is the 2018 edition of the Galaxy A5.
The first leak appeared on LinkedIn from Samsung's former employee who has worked for camera systems for the Galaxy S lineup and lists development of a new sensor for the S9.More news: Arab teams in the World Cup For the first time in history

Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates! Apart from hinting at the imminent launch, the FCC listing also reveals some specification details about the upcoming A5 (2018).
Under-the-hood, it is said to house Samsung's proprietary Exynos 7885 processor backed by 4GB RAM. Not much, but 2 GB Galaxy S8 is larger than the iPhone X. many other things Samsung is superior to iPhone X, but the experts noted that the Galaxy S8 after a while starts to work slower, and after all hanging out, while the iPhone X is more stable. It could also come with IP68 certification for water, dust resistance, and will feature a Type-C USB port for charging. 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.
Previous years have seen the Galaxy A-Series launching VERY early in the calendar, so we're expecting it to arrive soon inside 2018. In them, we can clearly see a vertical camera and fingerprint sensor arrangement positioned on the back of the phones.
