The first Galaxy A5 (2018) specifications have now surfaced online. A benchmark listing for the SM-A530F has been spotted which gives us an idea of what the Galaxy A5 (2018) specifications might be.
The Geekbench listing for the Galaxy A5 (2018) reveals that it’s going to be powered by Samsung’s new Exynos 7885 processor. It’s likely the 10nm version of the Exynos 7880 that can be found on the Galaxy A5 (2017).
According to these Galaxy A5 (2018) specifications, the octa-core Exynos 7885 has a clock speed of 1.59GHz. It’s paired with 4GB of RAM. That’s going to be a welcome improvement over the Galaxy A5 (2017)’s 3GB of RAM.
According to the listing, the handset is powered by Android 7.1.1. Whether or not Samsung launches it with Android 8.0 Oreo when the time comes remains to be seen. No further details have surfaced online but it’s a good bet to assume that the Galaxy A (2018) series will feature fingerprint scanners and water resistance.
Rumors suggest that the Infinity Display will be present as well. It was rumored yesterday that the physical Bixby button might also make its way to the Galaxy A (2018) series.
