Recently, an unannounced phone from Samsung appeared in GeekBench, a benchmark data base for the performance test. It is assumed that Samsung Model Number SM-A505FN is actually the next expected smartphone from Samsung – Galaxy A50. It predecessor was Galaxy A5(2017) model.
The cell phone is powered by Exynos 9610 processor and has 4GB of RAM. Another interesting aspect is that the smartphone was running latest operating system by Google – Android Pie. So far, Samsung seem to have latest Android reserved for flagship smart phones only. This means, Galaxy A50 would be the first mid-range smartphone to have Android Pie out of Box. This phone may be released after Galaxy S10 hit the retailers early next year.
It appears that Samsung might rename its premium mid-range A series as Galaxy A30, A50, A70 and the A90. The company has already filed for new trademarks in South Korea and the European Union. From the next year, Samsung would be having only two digit device names as Galaxy S9 and Note 9 is ending this year. According to file documents, the names will be used for smartphones, mobile phones, tablet computers. The company also filed for E-FOTA trademark which is Firmware over the Air update method for Samsung knox. This new nomenclature suggest a new lineup name series. So there is a possibility that we have Galaxy S20 instead of Galaxy 11 which is similar to Huawei which also uses multiple of tens to name its flagship smart phones.
Galaxy A50 is powered by Exynos 9610 which is manufactured on a 10nm FinFET process. This chip is capable to support for 480FPS slow motion video capture at 1080p and 4k video encoding/decoding at 120FPS. The result show 1615 points in single core and 4380 points in multi core processing. Smart phones with Snapdragon chip achieve higher level on benchmark.
