Galaxy A5 (2018) Infinity Display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio confirmed

Home / News / Galaxy A5 (2018) Infinity Display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio confirmed

It was first reported several weeks ago that the upcoming Galaxy A (2018) devices will feature an Infinity Display. Evidence has now surfaced online which confirms that the Galaxy A5 (2018) Infinity Display will indeed have an 18.5:9 aspect ratio like the Galaxy S8.

The Galaxy S8 was Samsung’s first device with an Infinity Display. It has slim bezels and eliminates the physical home key. If the Galaxy A5 (2018) is getting this then we can reasonably assume that it’s going to be the same for the Galaxy A7 (2018) as well.

Some reports have also suggested that while the Galaxy A5 (2018) will have an Infinity Display, it may not be curved. In that case, it will be similar to the one we find on the Galaxy S8 Active.

The international unlocked variant of the Galaxy A5 (2018) bearing model number SM-A530F has surfaced on the HTML5 Test website.

The listing reveals that this device is being tested with Android 7.1.1 Nougat onboard. That’s in line with previous reports that the Galaxy A (2018) series will come with Nougat out of the box and not Oreo.

The display’s 846 x 412 pixel resolution mentioned in the listing is inaccurate but it does confirm the 18.5:9 aspect ratio. All previous Galaxy A series handsets have a conventional 16:9 aspect ratio display.

This indirectly confirms that the Galaxy A5 (2018) is going to feature an Infinity Display. That means there won’t be a home button on the front. The fingerprint sensor would have to be relocated and it will likely find its way to the back just below the camera.

Samsung is yet to confirm anything about these devices officially. The Galaxy A (2018) series is expected to be launched early next year.

Curved or not I may look into this next year.

Translation: more expensive (because the diagonal size is now “bigger”) and obsolete out of the box (no Oreo, no Treble support)

Samsung has no shame releasing these expensive devices always on an old Android version.

Wouldn’t be suprised if they’d actually added curved edges…The A series tends to get closer to the S series year by year…

Why does a Phone needs to have a curved display?
I can’t find any utility to a curved display.
Even if you drop the phone down, it will be more easy to brake the panel.

No phone needs them, they distort the image and they’re objectively stupid, unless you happen to like distorted screens for no good reason.

However, Samsung needs them for differentiation purposes so their phones stand out from the rest. And so here we are.

2015, 2016, 2017 – No curved edge. The A series will never have an Edge display. because there are a minority of people who do not like the curved edge but still want a powerful device, that is where the A5/A7 come in.

In each of those years (2014, 2015 and 2016) Samsung has had at least one flagship smartphone that had a flat screen (S5, Note 4, S6, Note 5 and S7), but this year it had decided that all of its flagship phones will sport curved screens. That’s also a reason why I think we shouldn’t leave behind that possibility. This year we will see the A series with the premium Infinity Display and (according to some rumors) with the dual camera setup and 6GB of RAM (at least on the A7 2018). Add all that and the possibility (small but… Read more »

I think mid range A-series will don’t have curved screen like S-series.. Samsung will only apply the curved screen to high-end S/Note series
