Samsung SM-A300 is one of the three upcoming metal-clad smartphones

A new mid-range Samsung smartphone dubbed the SM-A300 has been spotted online and it looks to be part of the company’s upcoming A series devices. The handset popped up at GFXBench where a good deal of information on its hardware has been revealed unofficially, of course.

The Samsung SM-A300 is one of three smartphones which will be part of the initial A series. The second model will be the SM-A500 which was leaked in detail earlier this month, while the third member will carry the model number SM-A700 and it should be the most powerful in the trio.
