Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) rumored specifications and features

As mentioned above, the Galaxy A7 (2018) has been spotted in Geekbench listing revealing key specifications. The previous leak hinted at model number SM-A730, whereas the latest one was spotted with model number SM-A750GN/DS. If it is the same device with different model number, it may boast a 6-inch full HD+ Infinity Display with 18:9 aspect ratio.

The Geekbench listing also revealed an in-house Exynos 7885 SoC paired with 6GB of RAM, but the new model could be powered by a Snapdragon chipset. In the photography department, a dual camera setup on the front, and a single rear camera is expected on the Galaxy A7 (2018).

We have also come across 3D renders in the past that have revealed front and back glass design, infinity display, USB Type-C port and a dedicated Bixby button on the left. With NFC connectivity on board, the smartphone could also support Samsung Pay feature. But we doubt about MST technology as it has been exclusive to flagship models. On the software front, the Galaxy A7 (2018) is likely to run Android 8.1 Oreo with Samsung Experience UI on top.
