Samsung Galaxy O7 captured by a benchmark again, reveals mid-range innards
A month ago, rumors emerged claiming that Samsung is working on a new 'Galaxy Grand On' and 'Galaxy Mega On' lines of devices. Now, one of these two — likely the Mega On — was spotted passing through GFXBench's test suite, once again revealing mid-range specs.
We say once again, as the so-called Galaxy O7 (SM-G600x) was caught fooling around with AnTuTu a while ago, and the specs snapshot is identical to what GFXBench reports today. We've got an unremarkable, mid-range phone, with a 720p display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with an Adreno 306 GPU, a single gig of RAM, 8GB of storage — almost certainly expandable — and a 13MP/5MP camera combo. Going back to the screen, GFXBench reports both a 5.8" and a 5" panel, suggesting that two models of the family were captured at some point, though we suspect the smaller one is the Galaxy O5.
If that size ends up being legit, we'll finally have reason to lower our arched eyebrows, as we were quite confused as to how Samsung was planning on positioning the O7, which was previously rumored to be a 5.5-incher. That's because its specs sheet would be essentially identical to another member of a fairly new product line: the Galaxy A7. Obviously, we can't be sure that GFXBench has properly reported on this aspect of the device, but it's definitely not impossible that Samsung is prepping a really large phone for the masses.
