Benchmark leaks Samsung Galaxy A5’s successor’s specs

Recently, the successors of the Samsung Galaxy A3 (believed to be the SM-A310) and the Samsung Galaxy A7 (believed to be the SM-A710) were spotted in the GFXBench benchmark database.

The screenshot above shows the SM-A510 going through GFXBench’s tests just like its bigger and smaller brothers, which was first spotted by German-speaking The tests reveal that the device sports a 5.2-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. Its camera combo consists of a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera that will take care of snapping selfies and video chat. It will feature 16 GB of internal storage. There’s no mention of a microSD card slot, but we’re guessing Samsung will not omit this feature. Under the hood is an 1.6 GHz octa-core processor with a Mali-T720 GPU, coupled with 2 GB of RAM. We’re guessing this CPU is Samsung’s Exynos 7 Octa 7580, which is an octa-core processor with the said GPU.

Going back to the specs of the SM-A310 and the SM-A710, the former sports a 4.7-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels (HD), while the later rocks a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (Full HD). In the camera department, the SM-A310 sports a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video calls, while the SM-A710 rocks a 13-megapixel and a 5-megapixel camera combo. The two offer 16 GB of internal storage, and we’re guessing they will also feature microSD card slots. The SM-A310 was listed with a Samsung-made Exynos 7580 CPU, which is a quad-core processor with each core clocked at 1.5 GHz and a Mali-T720 GPU, coupled with 1.5 GB of RAM, under the hood, while the SM-A710 was listed rocking a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 CPU, which is an octa-core processor with cores clocked up to 1.5 GHz and an Adreno 405 GPU, coupled with 3 GB of RAM. Both run Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) out of the box.

As for when Samsung is planning to lift the lid on the successors of the Samsung Galaxy A3, the Samsung Galaxy A5, and the Samsung Galaxy A7, your guess is as good as ours. We’re guessing that, since the three have been benchmarked, the new members of the Korean tech giant’s A series will make their official debut soon.
