Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) and A7 (2018) appear in tons of new renders

With Samsung definitely readying up its portfolio for next year, it's only natural to see leaks and rumors about its upcoming products pop up. The latest two Samsung devices to receive the rumor mill treatment are next year's versions of the popular Galaxy A5 and A7 mid-range series, which will logically be called Galaxy A5 (2018) and Galaxy A7 (2018).

Visualized in a treasure trove of 3D renders, both devices get showcased from all angles imaginable, revealing all rumored design features of the upcoming mid-rangers. Said renders are courtesy of prolific leakster @onleaks

Be advised that the lack of a LED flash at the rear is not because Samsung is ditching this essential component - @onleaks simply forgot to include one in his renders, but rest assured the real devices will have one, as visualized in an updated render down below. There were rumors of a dedicated Bixby key on either device, but said hardware feature has not been included in the renders. Probably @onleaks doesn't like Bixby one bit..

Right now, we have a vague understanding what the hardware inside these two Galaxies will be: an Exynos 7885 chipset could be making the rounds inside either device, joined by 4GB of RAM. Taking a page from the Galaxy S8, S8+ book, the A5 (2018) and A7 (2018) might be getting the infinity display treatment, which means no physical hardware buttons up front and rear-positioned fingerprint scanners on either device. 

Both devices are expected to feature Full HD displays with a resolution of 1080 by 2160 pixels, with the A5 weighing at 5.5-inches and the larger A7 boasting a 6-inch display. A side-positioned loudspeaker, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a USB Type-C port are also shown in the renders, but only time will show if these will be making an appearance on the real Galaxies further down the road.

It's still early for price predictions and release dates estimates, but we should see the Gaalxy A5 (2018) and Galaxy A7 (2018) unveiled sometime in early 2018, quite possibly at CES 2018 in Las Vegas.

Would you get one of those if the price is right?

Samsung did it with FS. Almost, a little too close to the lense.

I say it's fake, as there is no led flash to be seen.

I know skimming through my articles is a favorite pastime of many, but this is literally written up there: "@onleaks simply forgot to include one in his renders".

It's an article about pictures of a phone, that's why I immediately jumped to the pictures.

The A3 is usually unveiled after the A7 and A5... Though this render looks fake.

There's no real reason to use that ridiculous aspect ratio other than marketing ("look it's bigger than last year's and you're idiots so you won't know that we changed the aspect ratio and believe we performed an engineering miracle!!!"). No disgusting curved screen at least. These days you got to look for the bright side of things.`

excited for the new a series i used the a5 2017 for a couple of weeks and i really like it but the camera needs a series improvement hopefully it will in the 2018 model and apparently there will be an iris scanner as well as a near bezel-less screen probably more ram and internal storage this device could be killer if priced right ( 390$ )
