Based on the recent scoop from Android Headlines, a handset with model number SM-A730F just received a certification from the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

And also, in a related development, Samsung has opened a dedicated support webpage with the same model number (SM-A530N) in its home country South Korea, further giving credence to the Galaxy A5 (2018) existence.

Samsung's Galaxy S9 won't feature an in-display fingerprint sensor, according to a new report.

Samsung is now rolling out an update that will install the November 1, 2017 Android security patch to the units of the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) in the United Arab Emirates.

Ronaldo took to Instagram to break the news and share a photo of the new happy family, including his eldest son Cristiano Jr . Rodriguez, 22, was reportedly due to give birth around November 21 but went to hospital earlier today.

Back in 2014, Samsung launched the Galaxy Alpha as an upper midrange smartphone. The device sports a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 by 1080.

Other than the model number, the website doesn't give out any other details, but rumors point towards an Exynos 7885 SoC, 4GB RAM, 32GB ROM, Android Nougat out of the box and IP68 certification, among other features.

Also mentioned was the Samsung Isocell Slim 2X7: a 24MP image sensor with a super-tiny 0.9μm pixel size (Samsung says it's the smallest in the industry right now). Apart from that, the phone was first spotted being listed in the Samsung's official website by Roland Quandt. Samsung's "Exynos 9810" chip is the successor to its first Exynos 9 series chip.

Samsung's A series usually debuts around the turn of the year, and 2018's editions are not going to be any exception. As expected from the Infinite Display design, the next Galaxy A7 handset is expected to lose the physical buttons and fingerprint reader on the front. We've seen solid evidence of the Galaxy A7 2018 already, but not much regarding the Galaxy A3 2018; the lower spec model of the series.
