A new Samsung smartphone has been caught running GFXBench. And with that we get the list of its most important specs, thankfully.
The handset has the model number SM-A5000, and this A-series has been rumored to be a new, upcoming line of Galaxy Alpha-like devices (probably featuring metallic design of their own).
The first offering in the new portfolio seems to be this A5000, which looks like it may be a pared down variation of the Galaxy Alpha.
It comes with a 4.8-inch 720p touchscreen, a 12 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front snapper, 2GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage.
The most interesting thing about it is that it has the Adreno 306 GPU, which means the SoC running things is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 - and that is a 64-bit chipset. It's actually the first 64-bit SoC to be announced by Qualcomm, and it got official late last year.
Despite the fact that it's 64-bit, the Snapdragon 410 is still a mid-range part, made for mid-range phones. It can sport a quad-core CPU clocked up to 1.4 GHz, based on the ARM Cortex-A53 architecture.
In the case of the Samsung SM-A5000, it seems to be clocked at just 1.2 GHz, but these things can change before the actual release of the phone in question.
The SM-A5000 also has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, a compass, a gyroscope, but no NFC nor a barometer.
Although Samsung has a pre-IFA event planned for tomorrow, it's likely that the Korean company will want to focus on just the Galaxy Note 4 on that occasion, so the official unveiling of the SM-A5000 may come later in the year.
