Not long ago, the Galaxy A5 (2018) has been confirmed to boast an Infinity Display, just like the Galaxy S8.
Now leaked case renders of the anticipated smartphone are making the rounds online, giving a closer look at what to expect from Samsung's upcoming midrange device with a flagship feature.
Galaxy A5 (2018) Catches Eyes With Infinity Display
The UK retailer Mobile Fun jumped the gun and posted Galaxy A5 (2018) renders for all to see, and for the record, the brand of the cases is Olixar.
Sure, it's good to see that nice-looking accessories are making their way out, but the main takeaway here is the phone that's inside them.
If these renders turn out to be true in the end, then that means the fingerprint scanner of the Galaxy A5 (2018) will be placed in the rear, which is the result of having a bezel-less design with the Infinity Display.
On that note, it's not awkwardly placed beside the primary camera, an unfortunate layout for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 that many users didn't exactly appreciate. Samsung's solution was supposedly an under-display fingerprint reader, but it didn't work out. That's a whole different story, though.
As for a release date, these shouldn't be taken as an indication that it's close. However, based on history, it's not a stretch to believe that the South Korean brand might roll out the Galaxy A (2018) lineup sometime in January since it did launch the Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A7 (2017) in that month too.
Speaking of which, the word in town is that Samsung might take the wraps off the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus in January too at the Consumer Electronics Show or CES 2018 in Las Vegas. They might steal the thunder away from the Galaxy A (2018), but that's not surprising considering that they're the company's flagships, after all.
The Bottom Line
To sum things up, Galaxy A5 (2018) renders provide a glimpse of the Samsung midrange smartphone, giving away a pretty good detail regarding the fingerprint scanner's placement. But more importantly, it shows the Infinity Display in all its glory.
Also, while there's no clear reason why these case renders shouldn't be the real deal, it's still recommended to take them with a grain of salt, for good measure.
