According to the benchmark database, the specs of this upcoming 4.7-inch handset include a 1.5 GHz octa-core Qualcomm chip, 2 GB RAM, and 8 GB internal storage space.

The next iteration of Samsung's mid-range A series has been in the rumor mill for a while, and now the time has arrived for another step forward. After the initial rumors, these devices have been spotted on import tracking website Zauba as they made their way into India for testing. Now, the Galaxy A3 (2017) has just shown up on GFXBench.

The highlights of the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) include the following - 1.5 GHz octa-core Qualcomm processor with ARM Mali-T830 graphics, 2 GB RAM, 8 GB internal storage, 4.7-inch 720p display, 8 MP front camera, 13 MP main photo shooter, the usual connectivity features, but also a pedometer and barometer. Although launching with Android Nougat installed should become something usual, it looks like this handset is only loaded with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

For now, Samsung has not confirmed any of the specs above. However, the new Galaxy A handsets should become official by the end of the year, so stay tuned.

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.
