Robert999, 26 Sep 2017Hope the price wont go up when it launchHope it comes with a bigger battery. What will happen if Samsung uses a 4000mah battery in these phones?
Dont buy this. A series is like 3 years behind S series in processing power. So the equivalent of the A series 2018 is the Galaxy S6
Momo Simon, 26 Sep 2017Wtf is yesteryear? LOL #no offense'Yesteryear' is a valid word. Even 'Yesternight' was in use in earlier times!

Just like Zenfone 4 and 3
So if the Zenfone 4 has 835 the Zenfone 5 will have a 845 and that will carry on so your theory doesn't make sense for the Zenfone series
I agree on all the other phones you mentioned
Also the New 600 and 400 Series Chips are getting close to the previous years flagships
SD 660 is almost close to 820/821 in benchmarks hence I don't think there will be a gap of 2-3 between flagship chips and Mid-range chips going forward it'll just be 6months - 1 year.

My J5 2017 on battery saving mode with 50% reduced cpu speed is opening everything extremely fast. You don't need faster cpu. It's all about marketing, to make you buy next product
Well, look at that, Samsung does know where a FPS belongs when you place it on the back of a phone, instead of the incredibly stupid location they have the FPS on their current flagships.
Also, they could still stand to lower it some even on this phone, to provide some vertical separation between camera and FPS like all other manufacturers in a common sense fashion, but still much, much better than on the S8 and Note8.

Like G5 SE, X , Moto X Style/Pure.
But still weaker than S6, 6p, Z5....
Maybe something like a " SD 635" , " SD 640" or a " Helio P35".
CPUs that can reach between 75 -78k antutu.
aqours, 26 Sep 2017samsung really like ppl to touch the camera glassDo you now, what Apple want from their fans to touch? Their pencils and Lightning ports
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2017They need to go back to metal for the A series for some differentiation from the S series.I think this time wireless charging will make it to A series.

So why do you think that the Zenfone 5 will come out with a 2015 CPU ??

Reflex, 26 Sep 2017Hopefully it now also has a notification LED.It's going to have AOD so no notification LED.
What about the A3 (2018)? No love for the most compact variant?
