Faster, More Powerful Version Of Samsung’s Galaxy A5 (2016) Spotted


While Samsung’s Galaxy A5 (2016) has already been in the market for a few months now, it looks like there’s another variant of the current mid-range phone lurking in the wild. Polish blog Tablety has spotted a new version of the phone with model number SM-A520F in both Geekbench and GFXBench sporting far better specs than the device current being sold in stores.

The new version of the A5 looks to sport Samsung’s own octa-core Exynos 7880 octa-core processor with Mali T830 graphics, paired with 3GB of RAM. This is a definite improvement over the current Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor and 2GB of RAM that’s currently inside the phone sold in stores today. The new version also looks to sport more storage space (32GB) and 16-nmegapixel front and rear cameras.

It’s not clear if the Polish tech outfit spotted a new, updated 2016 version of the device or a phone that’s slated to become the 2017 version of the mid-range phone. We’ll know in a few months, we suppose.
