Samsung Galaxy A04 Core leaks in three colours with a simple design
It seems that Samsung is already preparing to replace the Galaxy A03 Core, a handset that the company introduced in November 2021. While there have been no official announcements yet, Samsung has registered the device with the Wi-Fi Alliance. Also, the 'SM-A047F' has appeared on Geekbench. Subsequently, Roland Quandt and WinFuture have shared marketing images of the Galaxy A03 Core, showing the device in a few different colours than Samsung currently offers the Galaxy A03 Core.
It is worth noting that Roland Quandt has not confirmed the name 'Galaxy A04 Core' yet, although the device is definitely a Galaxy A03 Core successor. As the leaked images highlight, the Galaxy A04 Core has the same design as its predecessor, which includes a single rear-facing camera, a waterdrop notch and a 6.5-inch display. Presumably, Samsung will continue to include a 1,600 x 720-pixel panel, plus a 5,000 mAh battery and a micro USB port.
Supposedly, the Galaxy A04 Core will arrive with the Exynos 850, an 8 nm SoC that debuted in the Galaxy A21s. Despite being rather old at this point, the Exynos 850 should deliver over 20% performance improvements compared to the UNISOC SC9863A in the Galaxy A03 Core, a 28 nm part. The switch from a 28 nm to an 8 nm SoC should bring significant battery life improvements too; the Exynos 850 and a 5,000 mAh battery achieved good runtimes in our Galaxy M12 review, for example. Unfortunately, a release date for the Galaxy A04 Core has not emerged yet.
