Hope will come with OIS.. led notif is not so important becaouse he have AOD. And I like if the screen will not be curved, just 18,5:9. Thats way will be more durable than S8.. This phone will be very nice and good for 2018. Can't wait....
Please Samsung put a case and screen protector into the box like Huawei

People switch to Xiaomi or Motorola or Huawei for better utility. I think 450 dollar is bigger amount for this device.
Samsung Need to Bring in OIS for rear camera and it should not be dual cam just one single camera like the s7( s7 camera is the best even now Emperor ally) , good selfie camera should be there (Oppo,Vivo,LG are all gonna come up with fantastic 🤳 and if Samsung does not give @ least a 12mp autofocus face detection camera it's gonna face black days) keep a good screen, keep the handset handy in dimensions, powerful enough like and 660( not the best by for a midranger that's perfect ), IP 67 must, dual SIM , Headphone Jack, etc or else Samsung won't sell enough and the competition is growing well it won't take much time to dethrone Samsung as Flagships are going crazy costly people will shift to good midranges, so Samsung should price it close to 400$/380£/25000INR or else it will find only fans homes and fans are reducing day by day.
VaruLV, 12 Nov 2017A series of 2017 all have type-C USB, why wouldnt upcoming refresh have it?I meant USB Type-C 3.0, it will come with usb type-c, but probably 2.0 or 1.0 :).
Now we just have to wait for Xiaomi hopefully to do it with Android One and for half the price and we are good to go.

Arun, 10 Nov 2017Its better to have dual camera and type-c with version 3 rather than 2.0 version.This phone probably won't have dual camera's. It may have usb type-c 3.0, but don't expect it to have it. Most people buy these phone's because they want a good phone that can do most things they want to do and don't want to spend a lot of money on it. If you want a phone with dual camera's and usb type-c 3.1, I would suggest the LG G6 (Â€453,- in my country).

I can't wait for the New a5. When it comes out (decenmber, januari or februari) I am immidiately going to buy it. I own the old Samsung Galaxy Core GT-I8260 (2013) and it's just crap, slow and the battery isn't going to hold up that long anymore. I find it strange that many people find 32 gigs of storage is low. My phone hads 4.75 gb free space (try to live with that XD). So this phone will be awesome instead of the crappy phone I own now. And if people want dual cameras Gear VR support and just a lot more features then the 2017 model, just buy a s7 or s8.

Fingerprint scanner rear mounted, yes, definitely.

Ash, 06 Nov 2017This is gonna be a mid ranger phone with a flagship price that's my guess.the 2017 version says otherwise but u might be right

AAN RAMADHAN, 04 Nov 2017im planning to buy s7 flat, so what's worth to buy? s7 flat or waiting a5 2018?s7 flat is not worth the buy in 2018 , at least go for s7 edge for a more versatile look ,or just wait for a5 2018
Pros and cons of S7 Edge :
+ Edge Panel
+ Fast Camera shutter
+ Double tap home button for quick camera access
+ Overrall good performance
+ 4k 30 fps video recording
+ you can get it for 450 dollars
+ 1440p Display
- Old look + OS
- Average speakers
Pros and cons of upcoming A5 2018 :
+ S8 look
+ New OS + New interface
+ Good specs and Good size
+ Faster WIFI + Bluetooth
- Camera could be average (based on a5 2016 and a5 2017)
- No 4k video recording
- No LED notifications
- 1080p display on 5.5 inch is not so appealing
