Samsung’s Galaxy A50 series is barely a year old, but we’ve already spotted a new A-series model that could be its potential successor or in the least and iterative upgrade over the A50. The model is SM-A507FN/DS and has received the green lights from Wi-Fi Alliance today. If it seems familiar, the same model has previously been shown the ropes on popular benchmarking platforms Geekbench and AnTuTu. It could be named Galaxy A50s. This is presuming Samsung’s previous naming style for the Galaxy A10s and Galaxy A20s which were detected with “A107”, “A207” model numbers.
Now, as you might be aware, the Wi-Fi listing does little more to add to our knowledge of the device’s internals. The most it can say is that there’s dual-band Wi-Fi support as well as Android 9.0 Pie on the handset. However, previous benchmark listings have left us with plenty of fodder.
Based on both Geekbench and AnTuTu spottings, we know that the Galaxy A50s will likely feature an Exynos 9610 SoC. This is a 10nm octa-core CPU with four ARM Cortex A73 cores clocked at up to 2.3 GHz and four power-efficient Cortex A53 cores going up to 1.7 GHz. It has a Mali-G72 GPU. The same CPU was also benchmarked on a new Galaxy M30 variant last month that is yet to debut in markets. As per AnTuTu, the handset will sport Full-HD+ resolution (1080x2340p) and 4GB of RAM clubbed with 64GB of onboard storage. But that’s pretty much all we know about the handset for now. From the looks of it, this could be another model that Samsung launches first in the US and later in other regions of the globe.
