It appears that Samsung is testing its next Galaxy A series smartphones. Well, the reason we’re saying this is because the Galaxy A7 (2018), which goes by the model number SM-A730F, has appeared in Geekbench’s database. The phone’s hardware specifications have been revealed, and we can see that the device scored 1,478 points and 4,170 points in the single-core and multi-core tests, respectively.
Going by the benchmark’s listing, the Galaxy A7 (2018) has an octa-core 1.59GHz Exynos 7885 chipset and 6GB of RAM. However, we don’t know if the CPU has any high-performance cores. There’s no information about the GPU as well, but it is being expected that the Exynos 7885 has two Cortex-A73 cores and four Cortex-A53 cores. The same processor could be used in the Galaxy A5 (2018), and this was revealed through Geekbench. Coming back to the Galaxy A7 (2018), the device was tested running Android 7.1.1 Nougat, and that looks surprising because the handset is supposed to launch in 2018.
Other hardware specifications of the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) include a 6-inch display with Full HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) resolution and an aspect ratio of 18:9. We had exclusively reported that the phone will measure 159.6 x 75.6 x 8.2mm, and the whole package will have a metal-and-glass design. The highlight feature of the Galaxy A7 (2018) will be its dual front-facing camera, but we don’t know the resolution of the cameras. Samsung will continue using a single rear-facing camera on the Galaxy A (2018) series of smartphones.
The Galaxy A7 (2018) might also come with the extremely useful Always On Display feature, rear-facing fingerprint sensor, AI-powered digital voice assistant Bixby, IP68 certification for dust and water resistance, a USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone port. The Galaxy A5 (2018) is expected to come with a similar feature set but with a 5.5-inch FHD+ display and 4GB of RAM.
