First Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) renders show a shrunken down Galaxy S8 sans the curved display

Tall, nearly bezel-less displays are old news by now, with nearly everyone in the industry having already shown what its own take on the idea looks like. And in its brief lifetime, the trend has moved beyond just flagship devices, with both little-known Chinese manufacturers and bigger names like LG releasing cheaper devices utilizing the design.
