Support page for a new Galaxy A smartphone goes online

A Galaxy smartphone with the model SM-A750FN was spotted on the Geekbench website last month. The same model was seen at the FCC last week, obtaining necessary regulatory approvals required for the launch. In what could be termed as another sign of the impending launch, a support page for this device has gone online on the Samsung Spain website.

The support page for the SM-A750FN / DS doesn’t reveal any device details. The only small titbit is the DS part in the model number which points to a dual-SIM variant. The Geekbench result mentioned an Exynos 7885 SoC, 4 GB of RAM, and Android 8.1 onboard, but it is possible these specifications were from an early prototype with placeholder specs.

A successor to the Galaxy A8+ (2018)?

The alleged specifications are similar to the Galaxy A8 (2018), while the model number points to a successor to the Galaxy A8+ (2018). So far, it is being reported as a possible successor to the Galaxy A8+ (2018), but it is possible this could be the Galaxy A7 (2018) or an entirely new Galaxy A series device altogether. Unfortunately, all the theories we have on this new device are merely calculated guesses as of now.

Samsung’s mobile chief, DJ Koh, recently announced a change in strategy for the company’s midrange line-up. Instead of trickling down features from the company’s flagship smartphones, he said midrange models would get their own unique features. It remains to be seen if this new Galaxy A smartphone is part of that revamped lineup and strategy.
