An unannounced Samsung Galaxy smartphone with the model number SM-A5300 has shown up on the Geekbench benchmark database, revealing pretty impressive hardware specs. Since the Galaxy A5 (2017) carries the model number SM-A520X, the SM-A5300 could be the Galaxy A5 (2018).

The Galaxy A5 (2018) is listed on the Geekbench database as being powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core SoC under the hood, a significant upgrade in terms of performance over the Exynos 7880 octa-core chip powering the Galaxy A5 (2017). Another key difference will be the amount of RAM onboard. While the Galaxy A5 (2017) only includes 3GB of RAM , the Galaxy A5 (2018) will apparently come equipped with a whopping 6GB of RAM . Thanks to the solid hardware inside, the smartphone scored 1591 points in the single-core test and 5706 points in the multi-core test.
That’s very close to what flagship smartphones score on Geekbench, so it will definitely be a beast of a mid-range device performance wise.

In terms of software, the smartphone is currently being tested on the Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system. However, depending on when it arrives on the market, we wouldn’t be surprised if Samsung decides to ship it with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
Rumors suggest Samsung is going to equip its future Galaxy A-series smartphones with a dual-camera setup, so it does seem likely that the Galaxy A5 (2018) will impress in the camera department as well. The current Galaxy A5 (2017) is already quite impressive in terms of camera performance, so we are very hopeful that the successor will offer further improved image quality.
The Galaxy A5 (2017) was announced in January this year, so it seems likely that the Galaxy A5 (2018) will debut around January 2018 along with the Galaxy A3 (2018) and the Galaxy A7 (2018). In the coming weeks, we expect more similar leaks to surface online, shedding more light on the hardware specs of the Galaxy A-series (2018) family.
