Samsung Galaxy A7 will have an octa core 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor

It was only a matter of time that the Samsung Galaxy A7 would get leaked in detail and that has finally happened. We now know almost everything about the smartphone (except for what it looks like) and also its smaller siblings, namely the A5 and A3, which are powered by 64-bit quad core Snapdragon processors.

In a previous report, we highlighted that the Samsung Galaxy A7 will be more of a high-end release unlike the other members in the lineup. So it should come with a beefy processor, right? Well, GFXBench agrees and highlights that the device will sport a Snapdragon 615 SOC with Adreno 405 graphics.

The chipset is an octa core one based on the Cortex A53 and as previously leaked on the company’s website, it’s clocked at 1.5GHz. What’s more, the phone isn’t going to be a 5.5-inch phablet as rumored, but slightly taller than the Galaxy S5 flagship at 5.2 inches. The screen will be an AMOLED one with 1080p visuals.
