Samsung Galaxy A7 shows up in AnTuTu benchmark result with Exynos 7580 chip inside
It looks like Samsung can't keep a close lid on the upcoming Galaxy A7 successor. Previously, alleged leaks have claimed to show that the new Samsung Galaxy A7 will make use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615. Earlier today, however, the official AnTuTu account on Weibo revealed that a second version based on the Samsung Exynos 7580 chipset is also in the works.

The original Samsung Galaxy A7, launched back in February this year, rocked either the Snapdragon 615 or the Samsung Exynos 5 Octa 5430, depending on the region. A second-generation model that retains the Snapdragon 615 chipset was repeatedly leaked in the past few weeks, but it looks like the Exynos version is in for a slight upgrade.

The Exynos 7580 is a smartphone SoC that Samsung has previously used in mid-range phones such as the Samsung Galaxy J7 or the Galaxy S5 Neo. It is built using Samsung's 28nm technology - not in the company's in-demand 14nm fabs - and integrates a 1.6GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 processor and a Mali-T720MP2 GPU. Both the CPU and the GPU are standard ARM architectures designed with mid-range phones in mind. As such, it's not surprising to see AnTuTu claiming to have obtained a score of 37,563 points from the new Samsung Galaxy A7. The average Snapdragon 615-powered phone, including the original Galaxy A7, scores about 32,000 points in AnTuTu. 

Other specifications listed by AnTuTu are consistent with those mentioned in the previous leaks and include a 5.5-inch display (presumably of the Super AMOLED kind) with a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels, 16GB of integrated storage, 3GB of RAM, a 13MP primary camera, and a 5MP selfie shooter on the front.

While the new Galaxy A7 might not come with any significant upgrades over its predecessor in terms of internal hardware, alleged leaked photos suggest that we're in for a change on the build side. The photos show a Galaxy A7 that borrows both the design and the glass-metal sandwich build of the Samsung Galaxy S6. The original Galaxy A7 came with a metal frame, while the back cover was made out of plastic. At this point, however, it cannot be confirmed that this design change is going to happen.

Adreno 405 is equal to mali 760mp2 in performance. Mali 720mp2 is inferior. They should have gone with a S618 in A7 and S620 for A8,A9.

Or the Exynos 7420.

So it's a downgrade from the exynos 5430 on the A7. That's not good.
