Samsung Galaxy M10 (SM-M105F) With Exynos 7870 SoC, 3GB RAM, Android 8.1 Oreo Spotted On Geekbench
It was recently revealed that Samsung is in the midst of considerably shaking up its mid-range and entry-level ranges and replacing it with a more condensed new series, namely Galaxy M. Well, it seems we have just witnessed a model of the unannounced series appear on Geekbench judging from the model number. A new Samsung device with model number Samsung SM-M105F was listed on Geekbench and the resulting leaked specifications reveal the handset to be an entry-level device.
The Geekbench scan shows a middling octa-core Exynos 7870 runs the new device clocked at 1.59GHz. It recorded modest scores of 724 and 3637 in single core and multi-core tests respectively. Furthermore, the SM-M105F runs Android 8.1 Oreo and is backed with 3GB of RAM. According to the latest info, this Galaxy M model will come in 16GB and 32GB flavours and it could be a replacement of the Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7. Dual-SIM functionality is also expected to be common in all models of the M series while this particular model will have Blue and Dark Gray shades. This model seems to be the lowest end version of the series which also has two more variants – SM-M205F, SM-M305F.
A recent leak on AnTuTu of the SM-205F model hinted at the possibility of the handset featuring a notch as it registered a resolution of 2340×1080 pixel. That is a typical resolution with high screen-to-body ratio devices like the OPPO R17. This suggests that the Galaxy M series could see the very first of Samsung’s new Infinity panels. Furthermore, the same handset (SM-M205F) was also spotted on Geekbench with an Exynos 7885 processor, 3GB of RAM and Android 8.1 Oreo. From what we saw on the SM-M105F, these specifications fit nicely. The SM-M305F should be an even higher-end model with as much as 128GB of storage for higher end variants. Speculation is that the SM-M105F could get Samsung M10 moniker while the other variants would be called Samsung M20 and Samsung M30.
The Galaxy M series is believed to be replacing Samsung’s Galaxy J, Galaxy On, and Galaxy C smartphones in the near future. Meanwhile, the South Korean giant is also revamping its A-series.
