LG is the first smartphone manufacturer to bring the new 18:9 aspect ratio to the mid-range devices. It launched the LG Q6, Q6 Plus, and Q6 Alpha smartphones with FullVison display offering Full HD+ resolution. Now, the newly leaked image of the upcoming Galaxy A smartphone reveals some interesting new features. Looking at the earlier launched Galaxy A smartphones, all the three upcoming Galaxy A smartphones – Galaxy A3 (2018), Galaxy A5 (2018), and Galaxy A7 (2018) might sport Infinity Display.
While the Infinity Displays on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 smartphones offer Quad HD+ (2880 x 1440 pixels) resolution, the 2018 Galaxy A devices might come with only Full HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) resolution. Even the curved edges will be missing on these mid-range smartphones. From the above image, we can also dual camera sensors on the front of the device. After the Galaxy Note 8, Samsung has recently launched the mid-range Galaxy J7+ smartphone with dual camera setup. However, the 2018 Galaxy A smartphones will be first Samsung phones to feature dual selfie cameras.
The fingerprint sensor is now moved to the rear of the device. Unlike the high-end Galaxy smartphones, these mid-range devices feature it below the rear camera. While the power button and volume rocker are placed on the right edge, we can spot the Bixby button on the left edge of the device. Recently, the Galaxy A7 (2018) was listed on GFXBench revealing few key details. It comes with a Full HD display, 4GB of RAM and a 16MP rear camera. The device runs on Android 7.1 Nougat with the TouchWiz UI on the top.
Take these details with a pinch of salt, until there is an official confirmation from the company. Recently, ZOPO has launched the Flash X1 and Flash X2 smartphones in India for Rs. 6,999 and Rs. 8,999 respectively. Both these devices offer 18:9 aspect ratio but only with HD resolution. At Rs. 6,999, the ZOPO Flash X1 is the most affordable to come with 18:9 display.
