Samsung Galaxy A5 Camera

Over the past few weeks, a new set of Samsung Galaxy devices is making brief appearances online. Previously we saw the leaked images of the Galaxy A5 2017 post which we spotted the Galaxy A3 2017 as well online. And now yet again, the Galaxy A3 2017 has been spotted online showing off some of the specs which it will come with. Yes, this time, the Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 has made a brief appearance on Geekbench website. Now talking about the specs of this smartphone, this unit which carries a model number SM-A320F carries an Exynos 7870 chipset under the hood.

This is an octa-core CPU which is clocked at 1.59GHz. It also packs 2GB of RAM and it runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box as well. That’s all the specs we have to be reported from this recent spotting. Well, with these set of specs, the device managed to put a single-core score of 751 and a multi-core score of 4071. The score appears to be decent enough for the smartphone which is targetted towards the mid-ranged budget-centric market. And as far as the other specs go, from the past rumours we have learned that it will come with a 4.7-inch display with a 720 x 1280 (HD) resolution.

And judging by the last gen’s variant, we can also expect it to come with decent camera optics as well. And talking about the last year’s variant, it is worth noting that the A3 2016 was launcehd back in December 2015 and hence we will not be surprised if this smartphone is officially hitting the streets by next month.

    Nothing exciting! Looks like a mid range phone. But Samsung will price it at High range!

  • The good thing for Samsung being no.1 is, it doesn’t care about competing with others in terms of pricing!
