Samsung is set to bring its Infinity Display design first seen on the Galaxy S8 series and Galaxy Note 8 to the mid-range Galaxy A series next year. The Galaxy A5 (2018) has been part of multiple leaks and now another Samsung smartphone with model number SM-730D/DS has leaked with a design similar to the Galaxy S8 and is likely to launch as the Galaxy A8+ (2018).

With the new dimensions and support for the taller display, Samsung is dropping the Galaxy A7 name in favour of Galaxy A8 next year. There isn’t much else known about this device but the noticeable thing is the new design with thinner top and bottom bezels that looks identical to the Galaxy S8 series from the front. The smartphone is expected to sport a display with the taller 18:9 aspect ratio, which is more conventional than the 18.5:9 aspect ratio found on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8.

The photo leaked on Weibo also seems to indicate that it will feature a dual-camera setup at the front, which is in line with last week’s Galaxy A8 leak which also showed use of dual front-facing cameras. Samsung’s Galaxy A (2018) is expected to include the Galaxy A5 (2018), Galaxy A8 (2018) and the Galaxy A8+ (2018).
With the Galaxy A (2018) series, Samsung is also expected to fix one of the major problem with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8. The smartphones will feature rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and it will be placed below the camera sensor as opposed to being placed next to it.
It is likely to offer a 5.5-inch or 6-inch display and are expected to use company’s Exynos 7885 SoC or Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 chipset in select markets. Considering Samsung’s schedule for Galaxy A series launch, the smartphones should debut at the beginning of 2018.
