Bluetooth 5.0 is coming to Samsung’s mid-range lineup. The Galaxy S8 was the first smartphone to feature Bluetooth 5.0 and Samsung is now expanding the new standard to its mid-range handsets. The Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 (2018) processor has received Bluetooth 5.0 certification. This confirms that the premium mid-range handsets will have the new standard onboard when they arrive next year.

We’ve previously reported that the Samsung Exynos 7885 processor will be used for the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 (2018). It’s the 10nm version of the Exynos 7880 that’s found in the existing models.

The Exynos 7885 is said to have two ARM Cortex-A73 CPU cores (clocked at 2.1GHz) and four ARM Cortex-A53 CPU cores. It may also feature an integrated LTE radio and Mali-G71 GPU. No information about the number of GPU cores has been revealed as yet.

The certification confirms that the Exynos 7885 is going to have support for Bluetooth 5.0. The new standard provides improved range and faster data transfer. On devices like the Galaxy Note 8, it even lets users play Bluetooth audio on two different headphones.

Samsung is expected to release the new Galaxy A (2018) series early next year. Recent rumors suggest that the handsets will feature an Infinity Display and dual front-facing cameras.
