Samsung Galaxy S9 could feature Face ID, leak suggests


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.

Samsung does not reveal much information about a new flagship smartphone before launch day, but the homebrew processor that powers it is introduced in advance.

Of course, none of this is confirmed yet, but we should know the final specs of the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) soon, as its predecessor was announced in January 2017, so the new model could be just a couple of months away.

The FCC website in the US leaked information about the Galaxy A, as a supposedly certified model, as part of the regulatory approvals, before its launch.

The display might be of 5.5-inch, along with the pixel resolution of 1080 x 2160. The FCC listing for Galaxy A5 (2018) was reported by MobileExpose, which points out the phone has the following FCC ID: A3LSMA530N. The smartphone has now been spotted on FCC, hinting at the imminent launch. Like the premium Galaxy S and the Note series, the upcoming device will also have a fingerprint sensor on the back, but it will be placed below the camera module. The same reports said the rear panel should see some major design changes though, including the inevitable addition of a dual-lens camera.

The S9 series might incorporate the new Qualcomm processor, the Snapdragon 845 SoC.

The same report indicates that pilot production for the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus kicked off in October. Samsung has also been sitting quiet on revealing any details regarding the two newbies.

Samsung's sure to make a big splash with the Galaxy S9 early next year, but it also has a new mid-ranger on the way, in the form of the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018).
