Galaxy A5 (2017) receives update with November security patch

If you've got a Galaxy A5 2017, then you should be receiving the update soon. WinFuture's Roland Quandt spotted the SM-A530N (SM-A530) model number in the support section of samsung.com in South Korea.

It looks like Samsung's Infinite Display feature will no longer be exclusive to the company's high-end devices, as the company's all-screen signature is now expected to roll in the Galaxy A7 (2018) smartphone.

The rumored new Samsung Galaxy A5 appears to be quite near. But, it is confirmed that the Galaxy A5 (2018) will have an e-label for its FCC-mandated disclaimers, avoiding icons on the back of the phone.

Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates! The device will be powered by the Exynos 7885 processor, together with 4GB RAM. After taking into consideration all the news about the phone, India Today mentioned that the next-generation Galaxy A5 as a "could be poor man's Galaxy S8".

European Union takes step towards closer defence cooperation
EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini hailed the decision as a "historic moment in European defense". Gabriel said working together is "more economical than if everyone does the same".

The image shows that the handset sports the extended 18:9 aspect ratio display, previously seen only with flagship smartphone Galaxy S8 and flagship phablet Note 8. The next-iteration of the A5 along with other A-series phones is expected to be announced in January 2018, probably around CES 2018.

Citing "local news reports" in Korean media, The Investor asserts that next year's S9 devices will feature fingerprint sensors embedded on the rear of the devices.

Apart from the display, the FCC also listing reveals the hardware and software details that the smartphone may ship with. The phone should come in two versions, just like every Galaxy S phone since the S6 series, and recent rumors said it'll be similar to last year's Galaxy S8. "The small 0.9μm pixel size enables a 24Mp image sensor to be fitted in a thinner camera module, allowing premium smartphones to offer high resolution cameras in a very slim and elegant design".
