From the last couple of months, there are several leaks about the 2018 Galaxy smartphones. The company is expected to launch the Galaxy A5 (2018) & Galaxy A7 (2018) in early 2018. There are speculations that two of the Galaxy A (2018) models might be announced in the next week but the release might not happen instantly.

As if CAD-based renders, preliminary benchmark records, leaks of see-through protective accessories, official support pages and detailed user manuals weren't enough to tell you everything you needed to know about the SM-A730F, the 6-inch "Infinity Display" mid-ranger is now strutting its stuff in a three-minute-long YouTube video.

The manual also confirms the inclusion of Infinity display, with on-screen navigation keys being featured on a mid-range Samsung phone for the first time. It will be supporting both wired fast charging and wireless charging. The device is likely to be water and dust resistant with the IP68 rating.

The speaker will be placed on the right edge, sitting above the power button.

Other notable features includes a better location for the fingerprint sensor, both NFC and MST for Samsung Pay, USB Type-C, 3.5mm audio jack (yes!) and also Bixby. At the front is a 16MP+8MP camera setup, the 8MP camera will allow for live focus portrait shots similar to the Galaxy Note8.

The manual mentions the standard worldwide model numbers, SM-A530 and SM-A730, for both the Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018), respectively, clearly suggesting that the dual front cameras aren't exclusive to the Chinese variants.
