Samsung may be working on a new Galaxy A model with Exynos 7885 SoC inside


Last updated: July 31st, 2018 at 20:53 UTC+01:00

Samsung’s Galaxy A series may not offer the best value for money, but they are compelling midrange smartphones for people who don’t place too much emphasis on specs. The company has already launched the Galaxy A8, A8+, A6, and A6+ in the A series lineup this year. It appears there may be more A series models in development.

A new Samsung smartphone with the model number SM-A750FN has surfaced on the Geekbench website. This is the first time we have come across this device, and we don’t know what name it will carry if and when it is launched. However, based on the model number, it could be the successor to the SM-A730, i.e., the Galaxy A8+ (Samsung tends to skip number 4 in model numbers since it’s considered unlucky in Korea). It could also be one of the rumored new Galaxy A models we reported about recently, at least as far as the name is concerned.

Similar specs as the Galaxy A8/A8+

As per the Geekbench result, the mysterious device has 4 GB of RAM, runs Android 8.0, and is powered by an Exynos 7885 SoC clocked at 1.6 GHz. The specs are similar to the current Galaxy A8/A8+, which gives the impression it will probably target the upper midrange segment. While it is too early to talk about availability, there is information pointing towards a European variant in development.

Nothing else is known about this new device currently. Often, it takes months for a smartphone to go on sale after appearing on a benchmarking website for the first time. Also, since all of this device information is derived from a benchmark listing which can be easily faked, it is wise to be skeptical about it until further leaks pop up online.
