Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) shows up on Geekbench powered by the Exynos 7420 SoC
Last month, the Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) was benchmarked by GFXBench from which we learned much about the expected specs of the phone. Based on the GFXBench test, we should see the device come with a 5.1-inch display carrying a resolution of 1080 x 1920. The Exynos 7420 chipset will be under the hood. If that sounds familiar to you, that's because the component was used to power Samsung's last generation of high-end devices. That would include the Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
The Exynos 7420 SoC will carry an octa-core 2.1GHz CPU and the Mali-T760 MP8 GPU. 3GB of RAM is expected inside along with 32GB of native storage. A 16MP camera should adorn the back of the unit, with a 5MP camera in front for selfies and video chats.
Today, the Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) was spotted on the Geekbench benchmark website, confirming that the Exynos 7420 chipset is running the show. It also confirms that the unit will have 3GB of RAM inside and is pre-installed with Android 6.0.1. The Galaxy A8 (2016) was run through Geekbench various times. The last test produced a single-core score of 1466 and a multi-core score of 4709.
The model number of the phone is SM-A810, and with a recent Bluetooth certification, we are inching closer to the eventual unveiling of the handset.
