The Samsung Galaxy A8 2016 has surfaced yet again on a benchmarking site, hinting that the release of the Android-powered smartphone could be near.

The Galaxy A8 (2016) with the model number SM-A810F is a refresh of the 5.7-inch Galaxy A8 SM-A800F model which was released in 2015. Now, the SM-A810F has been spotted on Geekbench, giving a peek into the upcoming Samsung handset's specs.

This is not the first time the Galaxy A8 (2016) has been benchmarked. Earlier in July, the Samsung smartphone popped up on GFXBench, another benchmarking site that offered a detailed insight into its features and specs.

The current Geekbench listing was uploaded on Aug. 8 and reveals that the SM-A810F will house the powerful Exynos 7420 processor, which is the same chipset deployed by the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 lineup.

This is Samsung's own ARM-based SoC. The Exynos 7420 is an octa-core processor, which clocks at 1.5 GHz. The Galaxy A8 2016 is also anticipated to tout 3 GB of RAM per the benchmark listing.

Moreover, the listing also reveals that the Samsung handset, which found favor in Asia, will come with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box.

The handset was also run through the benchmark site several times, producing multi-core and single-core scores of 4709 and 1466, respectively.

While the Geekbench listing does not divulge any other details, the GFXBench test revealed that the SM-A810 — as opposed to the SM-A810F model number from Geekbench — handset from Samsung will boast a 5.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The device was said to house Mali-T760 MP8 GPU and 5-finger gesture support. The Samsung handset was also said to pack in 16-megapixel and 5-megapixel primary and secondary cameras, respectively.

The Samsung Galaxy A8 2016 was also listed as having 32 GB of on-board storage and offer support for NFC, GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The Galaxy A8 2016 was also listed as offering support for additional features such as a light sensor, gyroscope, accelerometer and a proximity sensor.

SamMobile reveals that the Galaxy A8 2016 has also received Bluetooth certification, which suggests that the release is round the corner.

"The Bluetooth certification is merely an indicator that all of the necessary processes are being completed before this handset is launched, this is normally taken as an indication of a launch that's just around the corner," notes the publication.

The midrange handset's exact release date and pricing are not yet known, but it could possibly debut at the IFA 2016 in September.
