Possible beefed up Samsung Galaxy J8 variant includes more RAM, Snapdragon CPU
Samsung is expected to unveil another set of Galaxy J smartphones soon, but we already have some information about at least two unannounced models. The first one, a certain Samsung Galaxy J8 popped up at Geekbench early this month with an Exynos 7870 processor and 3GB RAM.

Another Galaxy J smartphone has just been spotted at Geekbench and judging by the model number it seems to be an improved version of that one that we mentioned earlier, the Galaxy J8.

As such, let's call it Galaxy J8 Plus since it packs slightly better specs than the regular model (SM-J800FN). The newly leaked smartphone goes by the model number SM-J805G and packs a 1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor and 4GB RAM, instead of just 3GB included in the Exynos-based variant.

The rest of the Galaxy J8 Plus' specs are still a mystery, although we do know it will run Android 8.0 Oreo operating system right out of the box. It's possible that the Snapdragon-powered Galaxy J8 will be launched in North America, while the Exynos version could be available in the rest of the world.

Isn't the 625 a little long in the tooth? It was launched like 2 years ago wasn't it?

It's one of the best chipsets for battery life with no lag. If I was after battery life, this would be my choice today.
