Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017)’s possible successor spotted with 6GB RAM

Looks like Samsung could soon stir the mid-range smartphone segment with a powerful device. The South Korean tech firm is spotted testing a new smartphone on Geekbench going with the moniker ‘SM-A5300’. Based on the code name the device is being tipped as the successor to the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) model, which recently got a price cut in India. For those unaware, the Galaxy A5 (2017) comes with SM-A5200.
The device spotted on Geekbench is seen running Android 7.1.1 Nougat and powered by Qualcomm’s one of the latest mid-range processors, the Snapdragon 660. Since the processor supports dual rear cameras as well, there could be a possibility that the device could also come with dual-rear cameras. It is worth noting that both Oppo R11 and the R11 Plus run on the same processor and sport dual rear cameras of 16MP and 20MP sensors.
Furthermore, what will make the smartphone ‘powerful’ is the 6GB RAM as seen in the listing. The Galaxy A5 (2017) comes with 3GB RAM.
Although nothing else is known about the smartphone, there could be a possibility that the smartphone could be the Galaxy A5 (2018) version or a ‘Pro’ version.
For now, Samsung is all geared up to launch its Galaxy Note 8 phablet. The company has already teased the device in a couple of videos. The videos suggest a better camera and improved S Pen feature.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8’s one of the highlighted feature will be its dual rear cameras. The Galaxy Note 8’s camera is said to be supplied by the company’s own division – Samsung Electro-Mechanics or SEM. And SEM on its website posted a couple of features that its new dual camera setup can carry.
The website showed one of the features that its dual camera module will be able to carry – Smart Zoom. From the looks of it, ‘Smart Zoom’ feature will make use of one of the lenses, which may be a telephoto zoom lens. The resulting image is expected to be sharper than standard telephoto zoom lenses and slightly more saturated.
The dual camera setup will also be able to capture more light at night, resulting in brighter images. In terms of HDR or High Dynamic Range, each of the two modules may click an image each and merge it together to deliver stable brightness and contrast levels.
