Prospective Samsung Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A7 sequels benchmarked with respectable specs

It’s no secret at this point Samsung plans to push the limits of what we conventionally like to call mid-end Android gear with an outstanding Galaxy A9 phablet that would have easily been considered a “true” flagship not long ago.

But follow-ups for the Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 are probably in the works too, and besides predictable full-metal jackets, at least two of them should stand out with pretty remarkable hardware specifications… by mid-range standards.

Listed simply as Samsung Galaxy A3 in GFX Bench’s database, the SM-A310 clearly follows in the footsteps of the SM-A300, aka original A3, and given its predecessor saw daylight back in October 2014, it may itself roll out in a matter of weeks.

We’re guessing a “New” Galaxy A3, 2016 Galaxy A3 or perhaps A4 moniker is in store, and the Super AMOLED display will apparently grow in both size and resolution, at 4.7 inches and 1,280 x 720 pixels. A quad-core 1.5 GHz Exynos 7580 CPU shall take the Snapdragon 410’s place, and a robust 1.5GB RAM drives your multitasking needs.

The rear and front camera aren’t half bad either, sporting 13 and 5MP sensors, while Android 5.1 currently runs the software show, with a 6.0 Marshmallow update possible before or after the phone’s commercial launch.

As for the SM-A710, aka second-gen Galaxy A7, this oddly seems to retain most of its forerunner’s key specs, 5.5-inch Full HD screen, octa-core Snapdragon 615 SoC, 13 and 5MP cams included. The only apparent upgrade, though arguably a big one, sees the memory count augmented by 50 percent, from 2 to 3 gigs.
