A new Samsung Galaxy A5 is apparently in the works, but it moves away from the Exynos processor used by the current Galaxy A5 (2017) model. Labeled SM-A5300, this handset that still has to be unveiled by Samsung has just been spotted on Geekbench sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and twice the amount of memory of its predecessor.

Dubbed Galaxy A5 (2018), the Samsung SM-A5300 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor under the hood next to 6 GB RAM. Although it dropped at Geekbench with Android 7.1.1 Nougat on board, we would not be amazed to see it ship with Android O. In the worst-case scenario, it would launch with Nougat and would get the Android 8.0 update shortly.

Other details are not available at this stage, but a dual-camera setup is very likely to be present as well. We also expect 32 GB or 64 GB internal storage and microSD support. The launch should come later this fall, a while after the upcoming Galaxy Note 8, but everything should be taken with a grain of salt for now.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
