Samsung’s mid-range smartphones have always been good value devices; this is particularly true for the company’s A-series devices. The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) looks to follow the trend, with 6GB of RAM and a new Exynos 7885 according to Geekbench.
The 2018 edition of the A7 looks to have some decent specs, according to the popular bench-marking site. The Exynos 7885 is said to be a 14nm octa-core processor with two A73 and six A53 ARM cores, supported by a Mali-G71 GPU. While it is not a high-end processor, it is more than enough for majority of apps out there.
Another interesting feature in the Geekbench score page is the RAM. The A7 (2017) comes with 3GB of RAM, while the A7 (2018) lists 6GB on board. This may be a hint that 6GB will become a norm for mid-range smartphones from Samsung in 2018 – at least for the higher-end models.
Comparing Geekbench scores, the Exynos 7885 is comparable to mid-tier offerings from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon line, so we can expect similar performance in day-to-day use. In the list we see the A7 (2018) running Android 7.1.2 but that may change at launch as Samsung is starting their Android Oreo testing right now and expects to release the OS update in 2018.
The Samsung A7 (2017) was a good mid-range smartphone at launch, and we can expect the Samsung A7 (2018) to be similar (if not better) as well.
