Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) Spotted on HTML5, Confirms 18.5:9 Infinity Display
Currently, a smartphone with 18:9 display is being traditional as many companies have introduced their smartphone with 18:9 aspect ratio. Except for many big companies like Samsung, Apple, LG etc some mid-range devices maker like Micromax, Oppo, Vivo and many others have also introduced a smartphone with 18:9 aspect ratio this year. However, most of the phones still retain the traditional 16:9 aspect ratio.
Now Samsung is looking to expand this tradition to its upcoming mid-range devices under its Galaxy A series 2018, till now it was bound to flagship devices like Galaxy S8 duo and Note8. The Galaxy A series generally come with the conventional 16:9 aspect ratio but upcoming smartphones like Galaxy A5 (2018) and Galaxy A7 (2018) would feature 18.5:9 display. Recently Galaxy A5 (2018) appeared on the HTML5 test website bearing the model number SM-A530F. The HTML5 tests of the browser listing show the device’s display will have a resolution of 846 x 412 pixels. The resolution is inaccurate but what we can draw from it is an infinity display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio.
The Galaxy A 2018 series would ditch the home button and fingerprint scanner on front and move it to the back.
The HTML5 Test listing also reveals that the Galaxy A5 2018 runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system. The Galaxy A5 (2018) is expected to launch in two variants with 4GB RAM. The one variant could be exclusively for the Chinese market likely to be powered by a Snapdragon 660 processor and the second one will be powered by an Exynos 7885 processor for the international market.
