Update | The Samsung Galaxy A41 may be ready to join its 2020 siblings soon
Update: The Samsung SM-A415F/DSM has just been certified by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (Bluetooth SIG), confirming that it will be the Galaxy A41 on its launch. This new official documentation can't confirm or deny its MediaTek association, but does at least reveal that it will be a Bluetooth 5.0 device. Therefore, the A41 really is close to its release at this point.
The Samsung Galaxy A41 may have leaked in part, via the Geekbench 4 website. This set of results, which is attributed to the "SM-A415F", indicates that it will be powered by MediaTek silicon. This would make it stand out in a series dominated by either Exynos or Snapdragon processors.
This leak alleges that the "A41" will run on the ARM MT6768V/CA, also known as the Helio P65. This chipset, however novel, may in fact be a downgrade compared to the Galaxy A40's Exynos 7885 SoC: it has a max clock of 2.2GHz, whereas that of the P65 is 2GHz. The putative new A-series device may have 4GB of RAM, which would not differ from its possible former generation.
On the other hand, the A41 is also rumored to upgrade to 48+25+2MP rear cameras, whereas its predecessor is stuck with 16+5MP dual shooters. In addition, this 2020 phone is said to get a storage upgrade, as are others of its new line. Finally, it may also run Android 10 out of the box, whereas the A40 remains on Pie at present.
