The Galaxy A5 2017 series was announced in January, so we're not going to be surprised if the Galaxy A5 (2018) will be officially unveiled in the first month of next year, likely alongside the Galaxy A7 (2018), and maybe a new Galaxy A3, too.
And also, in a related development, Samsung has opened a dedicated support webpage with the same model number (SM-A530N) in its home country South Korea, further giving credence to the Galaxy A5 (2018) existence.
