Galaxy A5 (2018) will launch as Galaxy A8 (2018), reveals Bluetooth SIG


Last updated: December 5th, 2017 at 09:00 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy A5 (2018) will, in fact, be called the Galaxy A8 (2018) when it hits the shelves, according to a document spotted on the Bluetooth SIG’s database, seemingly corroborating our prediction that Samsung’s unifying its model names—and if that’s true, the larger Galaxy A7 (2018) could be branded the Galaxy A8+ (2018).

We’ve heard a lot about the Galaxy A8 (2018) in recent weeks. It’s expected to ship with an Infinity Display, an Exynos 7785 CPU, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage, as well as a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, which is tipped to be in the same position as the one on board the upcoming Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.
