Samsung is preparing to launch a new generation of Galaxy A smartphones and they will carry the model numbers A320F (A3 2017), SM-A520F (A5 2017) and SM-A720F (A7 2017). The specs of the smaller variant of the trio appeared on GFXBench, so now we know what to expect from the upcoming A3 2017. On the other hand, a Samsung tablet that is powered by a Snapdragon has made its appearance on Geekbench.
According to GFXBench, the Galaxy A3 (2017) will have the same screen size and resolution as its predecessor: 4.7-inch supporting 720 x 1280 pixels, but the hardware configuration has been upgraded and it will contain an Exynos 7870 chipset that will be powered by an octa-core 1.5GHz processor and will support 2GB of RAM (an upgrade from 1.5GB), but it seems that the internal memory will have half of the capacity of the previous model.
As for the cameras, the first one will support 12MP, while the selfie camera will be increased from 5MP to 8MP. The operating system that will run on the upcoming Galaxy A3 (2017) will be Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
As for the new Samsung tablet that was spotted on Geekbench running on the SM-T587P, it will be powered by a Snapdragon 625 octa core processor clocked at 2.02GHz, which will be backed by an Adreno 506 GPU and 2GB of RAM and it will also run on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Rumors say that this is the successor of the low-end Samsung Galaxy Tab E, which came in June 2015.
The model numbers of this tablet are SM-T560, SM-T561 and SM-T567 and they house 1.5GB of RAM. The leaked tablet scored 808 points on the single-core test, while on the multi-core test it scored 3180. Earlier, in July, the same configuration was tested and obtained higher scores of 903 (single-core) and 4207 (multi-core). Samsung hasn’t made any statement yet, but we hope that more information will surface soon.
