Unlike the S series, the Galaxy A rarely comes with a choice of chipsets though that might change next year. The Galaxy A5 (2018) has been spotted on Geekbench with an Exynos 7885 chipset, which is interesting on multiple levels.
For one, it is still not official but it’s expected to be a 14nm chip, same as the 7880 it replaces. However, it will have two Cortex-A73 cores for power, in addition to six A53 cores. The older chipset was at the heart of the Galaxy A5 (2017) and had eight A53 cores.
There’s more – Geekbench previously showed an SM-A5300 with a Snapdragon 660 chipset. Today’s results are from the SM-A530F. The Qualcomm chip posted a similar single-core performance but had a lead in the multi-core test.
The 2018 should have more RAM as well, 4GB or 6GB depending on the model. It will launch with Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box early next year (February probably).
Going by the model names, the international version (F) of the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) will come with an Exynos chip, the Chinese version (0) will use Snapdragon and will have 6GB of RAM.
That would make it more powerful and more interesting. Nice!
I loved my Alpha so much, sadly I threw it in a fit of rage and the tempered glass couldn't save it from my monstrous strength lol. One thing I give to the current A series is the software is so much better then the lollipop touchwiz on alpha. ...
Cpu has almost nothing to do with gaming, look at gpu. You can have 3ghz a72 8 cores, but still lose to 1.2ghz 4 cores a53 if gpu is better
