Samsung will use the Exynos 7885 processor to power quite a few upcoming devices, and the Galaxy A30 is one of them. This handset has recently surfaced on Geekbench with Android Pie onboard and 4 GB of memory, but there is still no official announcement regarding the launch date of the new Galaxy A lineup.

Those who are thinking about purchasing the Galaxy A8 (2018) or the slightly better Galaxy A8+ (2018) might want to wait for a while, because the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A30 (SM-A305F) should hit the market in the coming months with the same processor onboard, but it will be loaded with Android Pie instead of Android Nougat.

The Exynos 7885-powered Samsung Galaxy A30 (SM-A305F) listed on Geekbench right now features 4 GB of memory and runs Android Pie, but a 6 GB model could also be in the cards. As revealed by SamMobile in this exclusive report, the Galaxy A30 will come with 32 GB and 64 GB of internal storage space, so it would not be surprising to see the second version sporting 6 GB of memory.

Insiders familiar with Samsung's plans have recently told SamMobile that almost 10 new Galaxy A devices will be unleashed in the first half of the year. However, it seems that they will all be revealed after the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S10 devices, so get ready for more leaks and rumors until then (February 20, in case you forgot the big day).

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
