Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) is not new to the rumor mill. We have come across reports that suggest that the Galaxy A7 (2018) will feature glass and metal design and also come with dedicated Bixby button. Now, the smartphone has been spotted benchmarking site Geekbench, revealing various specifications of the phone.

According to the Geekbench listing, the upcoming Galaxy A7 (SM-A730F) is expected to be powered by an Exynos 7885 chipset. There’s no information about the GPU as well, but rumors suggest that the Exynos 7885 has two Cortex-A73 cores and four Cortex-A53 cores. Further, the listing reveals that the smartphone will be paired with 6GB of RAM. The smartphone was listed running Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box, which is a bit disappointing considering the smartphone will be launched in 2018. The Galaxy A7 (2018) scored 1,478 points and 4,170 points in the single-core and multi-core tests, respectively.

Unfortunately, the listing did not reveal anything else about the Samsung Galaxy A7 2018. However, thanks to the rumors in the past, we know that the phone is likely to come with a 6-inch full HD+ Infinity display with an aspect ratio of 18:9.

The renders leaked in the past shows the presence of the Bixby button on the left side of the smartphones. To recap, Bixby was introduced on Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ earlier this year. Considering the phones will have an infinity display, the fingerprint has been shifted to the rear of the phone. ALSO READ: Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018), Galaxy A5 (2018) to reportedly feature Infinity Display, Bixby support

The highlight of the phone is said to be its dual front-facing camera, but the resolutions of the cameras are still unclear at the moment. The Galaxy A7 (2018) might also come with Always On Display.
