About two weeks ago, Samsung Galaxy A5 2018 and Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 appeared on the Wi-Fi Alliance, confirming that their launch date is just around the corner.
Just before their previous appearance on the Wi-Fi Alliance, both Samsung Galaxy A5 2018 and Galaxy A7 2018 were also spotted at the Federal Communication Commission in the U.S., which basically confirmed that the A 2018 family is coming to the country.
As you can see, details of the Galaxy A 2018 series have been around for a while now. However, not everything that has been put across can be believed, especially since most of them are based on rumors. With this WFA listing, we have some of the confirmed features of the two phones and they include the model numbers and software.
There’s nothing strange on the software side of things, where the duo will be powered by Android 7.1. Nougat out of the box skinned with the latest version of Samsung Experience. Prior to the latest listings, we had seen the Galaxy A5 2018 and A7 2018 cleared with model numbers SM-A530F and SM-A730F, but there are more units on the list intended for different markets other than Europe.
The newly cleared Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 has model numbers SM-A730X and SM-A730F/DS while the Galaxy A5 2018 has model numbers SM-A530X, SM-A530N and SM-A530F/DS. In terms of specs and other features, previous reports have suggested that the pair will be the first non-flagship phones from Samsung to sport Infinity Display design, an Exynos 7785 SoC, 4GB RAM and 32GB storage that is supported by a microSD card.
In other developments, alleged renders of the Galaxy A5 2018 and Galaxy A7 2018 have also appeared online, basically corroborating what has been rumored before. The images show Infinity Display screens with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and unlike the Galaxy S8 and Note 8, the fingerprint scanner is below the camera sensor, much what is being rumored for the Galaxy S9.
