Twitter user Roland Quandt had pointed this out and the model number for the Galaxy A5 is listed as SM-A530N.
Firstly, a Samsung mobile with model number SM-A530N was listed on the United States government-run Federal Communications Commission (FCC), along with certifications which are mandatory for entry into the market. While it won't be a surprise to see the new mid-range family form Samsung receive the Infinity screens, we can only hope that the company remembers to place the fingerprint sensors in a more appropriate position this time around.
A new support page on Samsung's official S. Korea website popped up yesterday. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details!
The source - Ice Universe - has previously leaked information about new Samsung devices which have turned out to be correct, so the odds are likely that Samsung are working on a Samsung Galaxy S9 Mini device. Apart from that, the phone will also come with the Exynos 7885 chipset, Bluetooth 5.0 (which is quite handy, since the S8 was the first smartphone to feature the device and the battery saving capabilities of the tech will make for a consumer's delight).
The report adds the Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 got FCC approval on November 9. The certification also confirms that the phone would come loaded with dual-band WiFi support and it will bear an e-label for its FCC-mandated disclaimers. The latter from the same series, A7 (2018) is also expected to launch in the same period, with a larger 6-inch display panel.
There was word of Samsung producing an S8 Mini earlier in the year but that turned out to be either an elaborate prank by the South Korean company, or an unfeasible endeavour due to a number of reasons. Will it launch alongside 2018 version of Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A8?
Galaxy J3 will have 5 inches AMOLED Display.
