Samsung confirms the existence of a Galaxy A5 (2018)
Since introducing the Galaxy Alpha back in 2014, Samsung's been launching multiple Galaxy A smartphone models yearly, and it looks like this won't change in 2018.
Now, Samsung is silently confirming the existence of a new A5 via a support page that's accessible on its official South Korean website. More exactly, the support page mentions an unannounced Samsung SM-A530. But we know that this is the Galaxy A5 (2018) because the phone's previous generations have similar model numbers: SM-A520 (A5 2017), SM-A510 (A5 2016), and SM-A500 (original A5).
The Galaxy A5 (2018) should be powered by a mid-range Samsung Exynos 7885, further featuring 4 GB of RAM, and a water-resistant body. The new smartphone will probably run Android 8 Oreo out of the box, though we can't be sure of this just yet.
The Galaxy A 2017 series was announced in January, so we're
not going to be surprised if the Galaxy A5 (2018) will be officially unveiled
in the first month of next year, likely alongside the Galaxy A7 (2018), and
maybe a new Galaxy A3, too.
