A Samsung phone with model-number, SM-A530N, understood to be Galaxy A5 (2018), has been listed on the U.S. government-run FCC (Federal Communications Commission) and also received the necessary certifications, which are mandatory to get before it enters the market. The smartphone has now been spotted on FCC, hinting at the imminent launch.
And prior to that Android Authority reported that the phone would have a 5.5-inch Full HD+ display, 4GB of RAM, an Exynos 7885 or Snapdragon 660 chipset, dual front-facing cameras and a water-resistant build.
The same leaker, however, tweeted renders a few weeks ago that featured the purported design of Samsung's Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 mid-range handsets. This included a hint that the screen could be near edge-to-edge similar to the iPhone X. Apart from the display being like the Galaxy S8-like, FCC also reveals the details of the hardware as well as the software.
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).

The smartphone is an update of the existing Samsung Galaxy A5 launched in early 2017.
The smartphone listed on the FCC website bears a model number A530N.
The same report indicates that pilot production for the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus kicked off in October. It could always be a fake, and we'll probably see more Galaxy S9 leaks in the coming months.
Recent reports have indicated that Galaxy A5 (2018), like previous years, is expected to debut along with other A series devices, most likely is the Galaxy A7 (2018), which is also making rounds on the Internet. Going by the rumours, the S9 series of phones are expected to come with S8-like infinity display. In them, we can clearly see a vertical camera and fingerprint sensor arrangement positioned on the back of the phones.
