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.
