More evidence suggests Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) will come with Infinity Display

It looks like Samsung has big plans for its upcoming Galaxy A (2018) series. The South Korean company is expected to completely redesign the lineup, but also upgrade some of the phones' components.

Unlike the current Galaxy A smartphones, the future ones are expected to pack the so-called Infinity Display, which was made popular with the Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+.

We heard about that back in September when a set of cases for the Galaxy A5 (2018) and the Galaxy A7 (2018) leaked online suggested these smartphones will feature bezel-less displays and rear-mounted fingerprint scanners.

Today, more evidence that supports previous reports emerged online. The information comes from HTML5 tests of the browser, a benchmark that lists the resolution of smartphones tested. 

Apparently, Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) sports a display with 412 x 816 pixels resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. Obviously, that means that Samsung will ditch the home button and will relocate the fingerprint sensor from the front to the back side.

Samsung may do the same with the Galaxy A7 (2018) and other smartphones in the series, but we'll know for sure in just a few months when the new lineup is supposed to make its debut.

Samsung should really bring the A series back to the States. The A5 (2017) in particular had my eye around April, but I couldn't find a reputable retailer offering it.

I think we don't have it because J7 sells here by the carriers. And those are kind of similar phones, imho

i used the a5 2017 for a month and i must say i am impressed of how good it was im exited for the a5 2018 hopefully with a much better camera because it was the only flaw with that device ( it is good but i expect more than good from samsung espically in camera )

I'm sure it's not 2:1, my dear Cosmin V. A 2:1 aspect ratio would have 412 x 824 pixels and NOT 846. I'm old, but not obsolete! In any case, it seems like Samsung; quite stubbornly, is unwilling to let go of that weird 18.5:9 aspect ratio. I tried The S8 at a demo, I TRIED to like it (Being a Samsung fan, I was obliged to) but honestly couldn't. TOO narrow with that ultra slim aspect ratio and those curved edges. Whereas The LG G6 felt pretty nice in the hand. P.S How come no one complained about the ULTRA low; sub 720p resolution? Everyone jumps like a 'kangaroo' about the low resolution of iPhone 8 and yet no whining in sight regarding this phone? You all are hypocritical fanboys if I ever saw one! G'Day!

No the ratio is 18.5/9 just like the Galaxy 8 series (412x18.5)/9=846 .. Thank me later

No one complained because the iPhone 8 is a fully-fledged flagship device. The A series is a budget series of affordable phones. Obviously no one is going to complain about a low-resolution screen on a budget phone.

Well, the picture you've provided doesn't say a single thing about a 18:9 aspect ratio, just the number of pixels. And even if there was an Infinity display, it would most likely be 18.5:9.

Isn't that gonna equate to a terrible pixel density if the screen size is north of 5 inches? ._.
