Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) specs might have just leaked via benchmark
We're probably half a year away from the reveal of the new Galaxy A series, which is expected to arrive on the market in the last month of 2017 or early 2018. For that to happen, Samsung must have already started working on at least three handsets: Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 (2018).
One of them has just popped up at GFXBench, the Galaxy A7 (2018), which will be the most potent of the three (hence the name). The smartphone is listed under model number SM-A730x, so it's hard to find if you're not a tech-savvy.
The current Galaxy A7 (2017) smartphone is also known as SM-A720x, which is why we believe the new device listed at GFXBench is one of the upcoming Galaxy A series handsets.
According to the benchmark, Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) will pack a 2.21GHz octa-core processor, coupled with a Mali-G71 graphics processing unit and 4GB RAM, an improvement over the current model that features 3GB RAM inside. Also, the unannounced Galaxy A smartphone includes 32GB internal memory and a full HD (1080p) display of unknown size.
Camera-wise, the Galaxy A7 (2018) will come with a 16-megapixel primary camera and secondary 16-megapixel snap shooter on the front. Currently, the device runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat, but there's little chance that Samsung will include a newer version of the OS.
