Galaxy A5 (2017) Now Receiving November 2017 Security Patch


Samsung's Galaxy S9 won't feature an in-display fingerprint sensor, according to a new report.

Meanwhile, the smartphone was spotted on company's official website, which confirms the existence of the latest series via a support page. From then, Samsung's been launching multiple Galaxy A smartphone models yearly, and it looks like this won't change in 2018. This should make it easy to guess the next model number, which is without a doubt the one listed by Samsung - SM-A530.

We know it's on the way because Samsung has posted a support page for the phone on its South Korean website. This included a hint that the screen could be near edge-to-edge similar to the iPhone X. Apart from the display being like the Galaxy S8-like, FCC also reveals the details of the hardware as well as the software. Both the rear and front cameras of the handset are equipped with a 16-megapixel sensor with an aperture size of f/1.9. It is believed that the SM-A730F is actually the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018), and the FCC file revealed that this device is powered by Exynos 7885 processor.

The report adds the Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 got FCC approval on November 9. If the company sticks to this year's plan, Samsung Galaxy A5 2018 and the rest of the Galaxy A 2018 family should be unveiled in early January.

In addition, the phone is also expected to have an IP68 certification for dust and water resistance. Going by the rumours, the S9 series of phones are expected to come with S8-like infinity display.

But the Galaxy A series does mirror the design of the S sries and we've seen it come with a metal and glass design like the S6 and S7. In them, we can clearly see a vertical camera and fingerprint sensor arrangement positioned on the back of the phones.
