Samsung Galaxy A30s Spotted On GeekBench
Samsung has been known to offer a beefier version of its existing smartphone offerings later down the road. These refreshed versions of launched lineups often seek to boost sales, while carrying an improved version of the successful handsets. Now, A fresh report states that a Samsung Galaxy A30s might be under development carrying the model number SM-A307FN.
The South Korean company is claimed to be working on a new Samsung Galaxy A30s (SM-A307FN) after being spotted on Geekbench. The software is used as a benchmarking tool to measure various levels of handset capabilities and raw computing power. Furthermore, a mysterious Samsung smartphone was seen on the platform that carried a model number relatively similar to the one given to the Galaxy A30 (SM-A305).
Test scores seen at the Geekbench listing point at the Samsung Galaxy A30s being similarly equipped to the Galaxy A30. The device will sport the 14nm Exynos 7904 octa-core processor just like the Galaxy A30 alongside 3GB of RAM. Only this variant has been seen so far but a 4GB model is also expected to make an appearance. The Galaxy A40 was powered by a 4,000mAh battery that was capable of 15W fast charging, which might also be seen on the newer variant.
According to the report, Samsung Galaxy A30s scores nearly identical scores on the benchmarking software. The device scored 1,322 points in the single score test while reaching 4,116 points in the multi-core test. It is probable that the upcoming Galaxy A series entry will feature improvements in different areas. The Galaxy A30 had a 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with 3GB or 4GB of RAM coupled with 32 and 64GB of ROM respectively.
It can be speculated that the Samsung Galaxy A30s might improve on the photographic capabilities of the original budget smartphone. The Galaxy A30 featured a dual camera setup on the rear, 16MP + 5MP. The primary sensor had an f/1.7 aperture, while the front-facing camera is a 16MP shooter with an f/2.0 aperture. It was a capable device, however, not a class-leading budget smartphone. The upcoming handset could potentially improve these specs or in a surprising move feature a triple camera on a budget.
Price and Availability
Samsung Galaxy A30s could potentially be priced identically to the Galaxy A30. The standard version was launched on 28th February 2019 alongside the Galaxy A50 and was priced at INR 16,999. The A30s could potentially be priced similarly or slightly higher than the aforementioned price. The Galaxy A30 was launched in India so its improved variant is also expected to be available in the country.
The tech giant is one of the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world. It has a global reach that caters to every category and price range of smartphone ranging from unique foldable phones to budget devices. The new addition to the A series is welcomed entry as more options on the lower bracket always gives more choice to prospective buyers. More information should be available in the arriving weeks and updates will follow suit.
