As per the listing, an worldwide unlocked variant bearing model number SM-A530F has been tested and it could be the Galaxy A5 (2018).

We have some evidence to this claim because the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2018) is already seen visiting the benchmarking site GFXbench. A new report from a testing website HTML5test.com confirms that the upcoming Galaxy A5 (2018) and A7 (2018) will indeed come with the Infinity display bringing near edge-to-edge screens with an unusual 18.5:9 aspect ratio like the Galaxy S8. Surprise, this is the same aspect ratio Samsung has used on the Galaxy S8+ (Amazon, $742.00) series and Galaxy Note 8, meaning that the mid-ranged devices will also be given the preferential treatment.

According to various sources, the Samsung Galaxy A5 will be available only in the major developed countries and it is expected to be released by mid of next year. The processor has been paired with a Mali-G71 GPU and 2GB of RAM.

In the camera department, the Samsung phone sports an 8MP rear camera and an LED flash. The GFXBench listing does not reveal anything else, including the battery details. The processing power in Samsung Galaxy J3 (2018) comes from a quad core 1.5GHz processor of unknown make.

Apart from that, the GFX listing also reveals that the phone will come with all the necessary sensors like accelerometer, gyroscope and proximity sensor and other features like Bluetooth, GPS, and WiFi. Still, you'll get one of the best viewing experiences from a smartphone and that too from a mid-range device.

Unfortunately, the price of these devices will surely increase because an Infinity Display plus a Super AMOLED display combo is not cheap at all. We can also assume that the Galaxy A7 (2018) will also get the similar display as Samsung always maintains uniformity.
