Samsung refreshed a bunch of smartphones on its A series, back in January this year, such as Galaxy A3 (2017), A5 (2017) and A7 (2017). Now ensuring it, we could see indications that the company is seamlessly working on the next iteration of the line. This could be discerned through a new GFXBench listing of a Samsung device, which is supposedly the Galaxy A7 (2018).
The said listing at the benchmarking site, features a Samsung device, bearing the model number, SM-A730X. Putting this in comparison with the model number of the A7 (2017), which is SM-A720X, we can easily infer that the newly pop-upped smartphone could predominantly be the successor to it.
Comprehending the listing, we could learn that the Galaxy A7 (2018) will be powered by a 2.21GHz octa-core processor and Mali-G71 graphics, coupled with 4GB of RAM; and will sport a full HD display, delivering 1,920 x 1,080 pixels resolution. However, it hasn’t thrown any light on the size of the display or the exact make or name of the SoC.
Further, GFXBench has that the device will come with 23GB of internal storage; 15-megapixel rear camera, capable of shooting full HD videos; and a 15-megapixel selfie shooter, with a capability of shooting videos of 2K resolution. Recently, a Chinese leaker claimed that the phone will come with a dual rear camera set up, but there is no information about it from the GFXBench’s part.
Moreover, it is said that the Galaxy A7 (2018) would run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat platform; and will be released by the end of this year or by the beginning of the next. The 2017 editions of the A-series phones are running on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS and are already waiting for the Nougat update. Hence disappointingly, the Android O update for the A7 (2018) will be extensively delayed.
