The Galaxy A5 (2018) has been a regular visitor to the rumors mills for some months now. The device which is expected to launch as a refresh of the Galaxy A5 2017 seems fully set for an official unveiling. A fresh report obtained from Sammobile via Samsung’s Korea website indicates that the device has been listed on Samsung’s official website. The device hasn’t been listed on a product page yet, but on a support page, so it actually does not reveal anything other than the model number.
Recall that we have seen a lot of reports about the upcoming device in the past few weeks, but this should be the first confirmation of the actual existence of the phone from the company itself, a possible indication that the official unveiling date may not be far off anymore. The support page only indicated that the galaxy A5 (2018) will bear the model number SM-A530 which is very much in line with the previous generations of Galaxy A5.

It is not yet clear when the Samsung Galaxy A5 of 2018 will be presented. Rumors point to a presentation later this year, but we will have to wait until it is officially confirmed.
