Since the beginning of the year we have been seeing leaks of the Samsung Galaxy J7 2018, a device that would come to succeed the most powerful terminal of the J series and that we have seen in two versions with 3GB and 4GB of RAM under the codename of SM -J720F.
Now Geekbech returns to filter data from this device, but this time we were somewhat bewildered, since according to Slashleaks we are facing the Galaxy J2018, but its specifications do not finish us too much, and we explain why.
Until now we knew the Galaxy J7 as SM-J720F , but the new Geekbench filtration shows us a device called SM-J737A that does not seem to fit with the above.
And is that this new device , to begin with, I would get a score visibly lower than what has been seen so far, since until now we managed scores of 1200/4000 points in the tests of a single core and multicore, while now we find more discrete 737/372 points.
If we look at the processor present in the previous leaks, we saw what it was called Exynos 7885 Universal (2x [email protected] + 6 x [email protected] + Mali-G71 MP2), while now we find an Exynos 7870 (8 x Cortex [email protected] GHz + Mali-T830 MP1) , the same present in the 2017 version of the Galaxy J7 , and that implies a significant power cut. in CPU and graphics.
We find it quite strange that Samsung has backed off and repeat with the same SoC of the previous generation, since this is usually one of the main innovations. Equally weird is that in this last leak, the amount of RAM has been reduced to 2 GB , when previously we had seen between 3 and 4 GB of capacity.
A possible answer that we are before a test device that uses older hardware, although it could also be the case that we are facing a cut-off version of the Samsung Galaxy J7 2018 aimed at emerging markets, which could even incorporate Android Go as the Galaxy J2 Core
Geekbench does not tell us any extra data about this SM-J737A, but the previous leaks tell us about a 5.5-inch device with a 16/9 screen and some measures of 153mm x 76mm, all under Android Oreo 8.0 .
In short, Geekbench has left us with more questions than answers, so we will have to wait for new leaks to clarify what happened.
