The Korean giant is working on a smartphone known as Samsung Galaxy A5 2018, a terminal that is outlined as an improved version of the Galaxy A5 2017, although it could bring some design changes.
The first information only let us see some of its specifications and the fact is that we have major changes to the Galaxy A5 2017. The most relevant improvements that we know at the moment are the following:
- The Exynos 7880 SoC is replaced with Cortex-A53 eight-core CPU by a Snapdragon 660 which features an eight-core CPU based on the powerful Kryo 260 architecture.
- The RAM is increased from 3 GB to 6 GB.
- Dual rear camera configuration in front of the individual 16 MP Galaxy A5 camera 2017.
This new Samsung Galaxy A5 2018 also has all the additional advantages of using a SoC Snapdragon 660, including the presence of a 4G LTE category 12 modem with download speeds of up to 600 Mbps and 150 Mbps, respectively.
As you can see in the attached image its operating system would be Android 7.1.1, a version that soon will be surpassed by Android 8.0, better known as Android O.
It is important to keep in mind that the possibility that Samsung prefers to launch this new terminal as Samsung Galaxy A5 2018 sometime next year, or even be presented as a superior model.
In any case it is interesting to see that the trend to mount more and more RAM and use double rear camera configurations is becoming popular in all renowned manufacturers, and is no longer something exclusive of more expensive models.
