    Samsung has been working on a sequel to the Galaxy A24 budget phone for many months. Predictably, it's called the Galaxy A25. The phone was spotted in a performance benchmark a few weeks ago, and now, the Galaxy A25 has hit another online test.

    Samsung's upcoming budget phone has now appeared in the online HTML5 test, where it topped a browser score of 520 points using Samsung Internet 22.0.

    More importantly, the benchmark reconfirmed the SM-A256B model number and that the Galaxy A25 already runs Android 14, which makes it a One UI 6 device.

    Samsung has been working on One UI 6.0 beta firmware for months and is testing the update with the help of countless Galaxy device users. But the update will exit the beta stages before the end of the year, and Galaxy phones will start shipping with One UI 6.0 out of the box. The budget Galaxy A25 will be among them.

    There's no official word on when Samsung might release the Galaxy A25. Every new leak and rumor brings us closer to a complete picture of the A25, and although the HTML5 test didn't reveal much in terms of hardware, other benchmarks (and sources) did.

    According to Geekbench, the Galaxy A25 is powered by the Exynos 1280 chip. The Exynos 1280 is the precursor to the 1380 and was released in early 2022. It has four Cortex-A78 CPU cores, four Cortex-A55 cores, and an ARM Mali-G68 MP4 GPU. In Geekbench, the chip was paired with 8GB of RAM, but variants with less memory could also exist.

    Back in August, we also got word on some of the Galaxy A25's camera specifications. Supposedly, the phone will sport a 50MP primary sensor and a 13MP selfie shooter. The imaging hardware might be similar to the A24, but Samsung might use its AI expertise to improve camera quality through better software and optimization.
