There is a new Galaxy A series smartphone coming soon and it was seen on Geekbench earlier today. The Galaxy A50 (SM-A505FN) first surfaced in a leak last week but with a different model number – SM-A505F along with some specs. The benchmark result has revealed more details about the phone.
The Galaxy A50 runs Android 9 Pie and is powered by the Exynos 9610 paired with 4GB of RAM. Don’t be fooled by the processor’s name, it belongs to the Exynos 7 series and is actually an upper mid-range chipset that was announced earlier this year. However, it does have a few tricks up its sleeves.
The Exynos 9610 is a 10nm octa-core chipset with four Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.3GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.6GHz. It also has a second generation ARM Mali-G72 GPU. Samsung also adds that the chipset has a Cortex-M4F-based low power sensor hub that powers Always-on features instead of waking up the main processor. Another feature of the chipset is support for 480fps slow-motion video recording at 1080p.
As it stands, the Galaxy A50 may as well be the first Samsung phone to come with the Exynos 9610 since it was announced as far back as March. It scored 1681 points and 4897 points in the single-core and multi-core tests respectively. The scores are close to that of the Snapdragon 636 but the Exynos has a higher single-core score.
Samsung will likely announce the Galaxy A50 early next year and should arrive in Europe and North America (Mexico) as the name has been trademarked in the two regions. It is expected to come in 64GB and 128GB versions and in blue, pink, black, silver, and white.
