Since 2015, year after year the Galaxy A series has proven to deliver what premium phones feel like in a mid-range market. The newest edition to the series is the Galaxy A5 2018. The middle child of the trio, the Galaxy A5 2018 is both more powerful and more beautiful than its predecessor. The phone price is about 45,000 PKR.
The Galaxy A5 2018 is very reminiscent of the Galaxy S8, as was the 2017 variant with the S7 and the 2016 version with the S6. Copying of the design patterns of flagships is anything but bad. With the amazing reception received by the mobile industry and fans alike, it’s a no brainer that the Galaxy A5 2018 will stand out amongst its competition.
Just like the S8, the phone will have curved edges and adopt the 2:1 aspect ratio Infinity Display that made waves in the smartphone world. There is a dedicated Bixby button right under the volume rocker just like the S8 too. A fingerprint scanner is to be found on the backside for this variant.
The phone will likely have a glass back panel which will only add to its appeal in the eyes of the customers.
The main feature of this year’s Galaxy A5 is the Infinity Display inherited from the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8. However, unlike these two beasts, the Galaxy A5 2018 won’t have a curved screen but a flat one instead, since that feature is reserved for the flagships only. Because it’s an Infinity Display, the aspect ratio is 2:1 meaning the phone is taller and slimmer in terms of width. The display is 5.5-inches long diagonally and will feature a 1080p display giving you a crisp screen with a pixel density of 442ppi.
Dual cameras have already made their mark in the flagship territory, but now even the mid-range market is seeing dual camera setups. However, the Galaxy A5 2018 is not bumping up the megapixel count from last year’s Galaxy A5 2017. The resolution is still at the much appreciated 16MP with f/1.9 aperture with geo-tagging and phase detection auto focus being standard features. The front camera is the same 16MP one as well so selfie fans can rejoice.
Packing 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal memory, the hardware of the Galaxy A5 2018 is better than your standard hardware. With 64GB of storage, you probably won’t need to use a memory card, but in case you do the option is always there. 4GB RAM means the phone will be running buttery smooth. Lighting things up in the International markets for the Galaxy A5 2018 is the Snapdragon 660, a powerful mid-range chipset with 8 cores keeping things running.
The Chinese markets and Asia pacific ones are bound to see the Exynos version on their shelves. Coming with Android 7.1.1 right out of the box, the Galaxy A5 2018 is to be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo real soon. Breathing life into your phone is the juicy 3300mAh battery, so less power hungry users can see their phone lasting 2 days long.
