Samsung is reportedly planning a huge revamp for its smartphone lineup next year and further simplify the device portfolio. There are rumors of company combining the Galaxy J, Galaxy C, Galaxy A, Galaxy On series into a single series called the Galaxy M but now, an upcoming Galaxy A series device has been spotted. An upcoming smartphone named the Galaxy A50 with model number SM-A505FN has been spotted on Geekbench.

The benchmark listing first spotted by MySmartPrice shows that the Galaxy A50 will be powered by an Exynos 7 series chipset. The device, in question, is powered by Exynos 7 9610 chipset, a new mobile platform fabricated on the 10nm process. The processor offers four Cortex A73 cores clocked at 2.3GHz and four Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.6GHz. The chipset is being aided by Mali-G72 MP3, which will be responsible for all the visual and gaming activity.

In terms of performance, the Galaxy A50 scored 1681 in single-core test and 4867 in multi-core test. The single-core score is comparable to that of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 while the multi-core score is more closer to that of the Snapdragon 636 mobile platform.

The most interesting part of this device listing is that the Galaxy A50 runs Android 9 Pie out of the box. Even flagship smartphones from Samsung, namely the Galaxy S9+ and Galaxy Note 9, are yet to get official Android Pie update. The South Korean smartphone maker has only recently started seeding Pie beta to these flagship devices and official roll out is expected only in January.

It is also worth noting that the leaked benchmarks of Galaxy M series smartphones have shown them running Oreo and not Pie. The Galaxy A50 seems to be packed with 4GB of RAM and is expected to arrive in two storage options of 64GB and 128GB and might be limited to certain markets.
