Samsung Galaxy A7 featuring Exynos 7580 SoC surfaces on AnTuTu
We have been hearing rumors about the Galaxy A7 successor for sometime now, but recently a variant of the upcoming device featuring Samsung’s Exynos 7580 processor has surfaced on the AnTuTu benchmark. And the results are quite impressive.
Earlier, it had emerged in a series of leaks that the new Galaxy A7 will feature a 5.5-inch FHD AMOLED display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 SoC, 3GB of RAM and a duo of 13MP primary and 5MP front-facing cameras. It is noteworthy that the original Galaxy A7 was either powered by Snapdragon 615 or Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa 5430 chipsets.
However, AnTuTu results posted on Weibo revealed that the Exynos 7580 featuring device is built using Samsung’s 28nm architecture. The processor comprising a 1.6GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 processor and a Mali-T720MP2 GPU has previously been seen in Samsung Galaxy J7 or the Galaxy S5 Neo. Unsurprisingly, it obtained a respectable score of 37,563 points against the Snapdragon 615-powered Galaxy A7 that managed to get 32,000 points on the benchmark.
In addition to an upgraded processor, the new Galaxy A7 may have a completely revamped design – or, at least that’s what the the leaked reports would want us to believe. The metal frame of the original Galaxy A7 was its USP, but it came with a plastic back – something that Samsung had faced criticism for years. Things, however, began to change with launch of the Galaxy S6, which had a metal and glass body. If new leaks are to be believed, the new Galaxy A7 will have a similar build and design, which indeed is a great news for those who are looking to buy a quality mid-range phone.
