With the year 2017 almost behind us, it’s time to start focusing on some devices that may be getting an early 2018 release date. We already know Samsung is working on a couple of smartphones which it intends releasing in the first quarter of 2018. Aside from the Galaxy S9 and S9 plus, the company is also expected to unveil its next iteration of Galaxy A (2018) series. Specifically, the Galaxy A5 (2018) and Galaxy A7 (2018) have both been rumored to be unveiled within the said period.
Now, an FCC listing of a device labeled with model number SM-A730F just secured the go-ahead from FCC certification, and by all indication, it is the Galaxy A7 (2018). While there is not much we can deduce from the certification document, few of its expected specifications have since been outed in several leaks and rumors.
As far as specs go, the device with its A5 2018 sibling is expected to come with infinity display and an 18.5:9 aspect ratio like the Galaxy S8. At the heart of the device, there will be the homegrown Exynos 7885 processor, a SoC that is expected to be very efficient in performance and power. The SoC supports Bluetooth 5.0, which means the Galaxy A7 (2018) could be first mid-range device from Samsung to support Bluetooth 5.0.
