The rumor mill is consistently spilling information on the design of the upcoming Galaxy A5 (2018) and Galaxy A8 (2018) smartphones that are pegged to get unveiled at the end of this year or at the beginning of January 2018. The Galaxy A series phones are usually launched almost a year after the debut of Galaxy S series flagship phones. Samsung is known for using some of the best features of the Galaxy S smartphones on its Galaxy A phones. Hence, the forthcoming A5 and A7 are likely to borrow their design and features from the Galaxy S8. An Indian publication has revealed the renders of the Galaxy A5 (2018) and Galaxy A7 (2018) along with the speculated features and specs that will be arriving on these phones.

The publication claims that the Galaxy A5 (2018) measures 148.8 x 70.5 x 8.4 mm and the dimensions of the larger Galaxy A7 (2018) are 159.6 x 75.6 x 8.2mm. Both the smartphones are rumored to arrive with the same design and they are speculated to feature metal and glass combination chassis. Rumors have suggested that the upcoming A5 and A7 will be IP68 certified dust and water resistant smartphones.
Rumors have been claiming that the 2018 Galaxy A5 and A7 will be the first Galaxy A smartphones to feature Bixby AI. However, fresh information suggests that these smartphones may not feature a dedicated button for it. The bottom side of the phone features a 3.5mm audio jack and a USB-C port. Also, these phones may feature dual front-facing selfie snappers.
The most striking change compared to the 2017 iterations of Galaxy A5 and A7 is that their successor phones will be fitted with Infinity Displays. The inclusion of full screen design on the Galaxy A5 (2018) and Galaxy A7 (2018) will probably result in the positioning of the fingerprint scanners below the camera on the back panel.

The Infinity Displays on the upcoming Galaxy A5 and A7 phones will carry support for Always-on Display feature. Their screens are expected to produce Full HD+ resolution of 2,160 x 1,080 pixels. The 10nm Exynos 7885 chipset may power both the smartphones. Since Samsung is known for releasing Snapdragon edition of its phones for different markets, these devices are likely to arrive in Snapdragon 660 chipset models.
