Remember when we told you Samsung is likely working on upgraded versions of the Samsung Galaxy A3, A5, and A7? Well we were right. Some specifications of the SM-A310 (an upgraded version of the Galaxy A3) and the SM-A710 (an upgraded version of the A7) have popped up on the GFXBench benchmark test.
According to the listing, the SM-A310 will feature a 4.7-inch HD display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, a bump from the Galaxy A3’s small 540 x 960 pixels. It will also run on an Exynos 7580 quad-core processor with 1.5GB of RAM, a change from the Galaxy A3’s Snapdragon 410 processor. There will be a 13-megapixel camera at the back of the device and a 5-megapixel camera in front.
The SM-A710 on the other hand, will come with a 5.5-inch HD display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, just like the Galaxy A7. Also like the Galaxy A7, the SM-A710 will be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor. Unlike the Galaxy A7’s 2GB of RAM, however, the upcoming SM-A710 will have 3GB of RAM.
The benchmark also states that the two devices will come with Android Lollipop out-of-the-box. Although, with the recent release of Android Marshmallow, this is subject to change.
The Samsung Galaxy A series is a line of mid-range smartphones that exhibit sophisticated designs, and we do not expect these upcoming devices to offer less.n
