GFXBench recently did a few benchmark tests for Samsung, specifically on the successors of the Samsung Galaxy A3 and the Samsung Galaxy A7.
One notable absence was the phone that was supposed to succeed Samsung Galaxy A5. However, on Oct. 30 the benchmark platform released the results for it as well.
Since the new models have no official marketing tags yet, the device following Galaxy A5's footsteps is dubbed SM-A510.
GFXBench reports that the device has a 5.2-inch display and a resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels. The touchscreen is calibrated for a minimum of five-finger gesture support. Processing power comes from an octa-core running at 1.6GHz. The Exynos 7 Octa SoC chipset contains four Cortex-A57 cores and four Cortex-A53 cores and is produced by Samsung. The graphics are enabled by an ARM Mali-T720 GPU, and the random access memory (RAM) has 2GB. The default storage capacity is 16GB.
The handset features two cameras, a 12MP back facing snapper that provides a resolution of 4,128 x 3,096 pixels and a front-facing 5MP that can shoot FHD video clips at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. Buyers will get the Galaxy A5 successor with Android 5.1.1.
To compare, the smartphone that will carry Galaxy A3's legacy, the SM-A310, is a tad smaller and less spectacular in specs. Its resolution is only 720 x 1,280 pixels and its screen is tinier than SM-A510's, measuring only 4.7-inches. It has a Mali-T720 GPU, a quad-core Exynos 7580 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz and an amount of RAM of only 1.5GB. The picture-taking duo is made of a 13-megapixel back camera and a 5-megapixel front camera. Android 5.1.1 Lollipop is also pre-installed.
On the other hand, the benchmarking for the A7 sequel shows a 5.5-inch screen that sports a 1,080 x 1,920 resolution, an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, 3 GB of RAM and a GPU from Adreno 405. The combo of cams is 13MP/5MP back to front, with the front cam having video chatting functionality. The phablet is equipped with 16GB of storage space and features the pre-installed Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
None of the three gadgets have been officially announced. This means that fans of the Galaxy A series will have to wait a bit longer to find what price, availability and name will come to each handset.
