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


Last updated: November 8th, 2017 at 21:38 UTC+02:00

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.
