Samsung mid-ranger pops up on Geekbench, is this the Galaxy A7 (2018)?



Although Samsung has been rumored to be ditching its entry-level Galaxy J series in favor of upcoming Galaxy R and Galaxy P families, the Galaxy A line seems to be safe from getting depreciated.

Actually, an upcoming member of the Galaxy A series could have just popped up on the Geekbeench benchmark platform, revealing a few hardware tidbits about the handset. As it is rolling by the SM-A750FN model number, it could be speculated that this device might end up as the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018), next in line in the not-too-shabby mid-range Galaxy A family.

The leaked SM-A750FN is listed as having a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 7885 chipset, which is most popular for making it into the Galaxy A8 (2018) earlier this year. Alongside the custom Samsung chipset tick 4GB of RAM, which is okay for a mid-range device of that scope. As far as prowess goes, the device is listed as hitting a single-core score of 1526 and multi-core one of 4265, which is very comparable with the benchmarks achieved by the Galaxy A8 (2018). Android Oreo is powering the shebang, which is perfectly acceptable in this day and age still.

Hierarchy-wise, we'd wager it will be a more affordable variant to the Galaxy A8 (2018) that will supplement Samsung's mid-range lineup which has been taking a lot of hits from more affordable alternatives.

The Geekbench listing doesn't really reveal anything else as far as rumors go, but hey, even what we got is worth it.

I think that Samsung is just truly ridiculous now. Why not just simply lower the cost of the darn A8 line and so make it more affordable rather than create a whole new phone. I think they just have too much money and really don't know what to do anymore. I'm still certain that they have a huge stock of old flagships that can be sold cheaply. Clear old stock by flooding the markets with still good phones at reduced cost. People are still buying S7 and S8 lines as a lot may prefer a former flagship from an established brand over a cheap midrange phone.
