New mid-range Samsung phone leaked, could be the Galaxy J8 2018?

Another Samsung mid-ranger spotted today on both Geekbench & GFXbench going by the model number SM-J720F revealing some specs about the device. And it is reported to be carrying the J8 2018 naming scheme. This might be due to Samsung trying to unify it’s line up maybe.

The J8 2018 is a budget mid-range device which is powered by a Samsung’s homegrown Exynos 7885 which is also a reasonably mid-tier chip containing Octa-Core CPUs clocked at 1.6GHz(it is 1.59GHz) to be precise. As far as the Geekbench scores are concerned the single is more than enough with 1208 points for a device of this caliber, while multi-core performance is also acceptable at 4212 points.

Based on ARM Cortex A53 cores which are known for its power efficiency, and along with that, paired with a Mali G-71 GPU which is the first GPU to implement the Bitfrost architecture, which can handle high-end computational tasks. It is clocked at a whopping 850MHz and manufactured at 16nm finFET process.

Moving ahead, the device gets healthy memory options at 4GB RAM & 32GB internal storage with sd-card support also, but just a 720p HD display at 5.5-inch which is not even average as per 2017-2018 standards, unless this is aimed at $150 to $220 price segment. In the camera department, Samsung has blessed it with a 13 MP rear shooter with LED Flash and an 8 MP front snapper for selfies.

Finally, in the sensors department, this has a compass sensor, and other essential sensors are also present, but sadly it misses on the gyroscope one. However, fortunately, the device runs on Android Oreo 8.0 which is a welcome move from the South-Korean giant.
