Previous leaks have indicated that Samsung is planning to bring its "Infinity Display" technology to budget smartphones with the Galaxy A5 (2018) when an image showing the cover case of Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) has popped up on Weibo, a Chinese microblogging website. WinFuture's Roland Quandt spotted the SM-A530N (SM-A530) model number in the support section of samsung.com in South Korea.
Samsung is now rolling out an update that will install the November 1, 2017 Androidsecurity patch to the units of the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) in the United Arab Emirates. The support page - for what should be - the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) has appeared on Samsung Korea's official website; indicating it won't be long before the device in released.

Like Galaxy A5 (2018), the new A7 (SM-A720x) series is also expected to feature design, but bigger 5.7-inch/6.0-inch full HD+ (2160x1080p) screen with 18.5:9 aspect ratio and fingerprint sensor on the back, just below the camera module. The device is also said to be powered by Exynos 7885 processor and come coupled with 4GB of RAM.
It is also likely that the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) will sport a USB Type-C port and the new Bixby button, which will call Samsung's resident virtual assistant right away. If the company sticks to this year's plan, Samsung Galaxy A5 2018 and the rest of the Galaxy A 2018 family should be unveiled in early January. The phone could also have a rear fingerprint scanner, though the dual-rear camera might not make an appearance on the A5 smartphone. The most prominent one was, of course, the near bezel-less display screen, which mostly resembles what you see on the rugged Galaxy S8 Active, which doesn't come with curved edges like the S8, S8+ and Note 8. In their view, the two devices far exceed other devices, so in a short time they can't be beat.
