First Posted: Sep 15, 2016 05:20 AM EDT

Samsung's popular A series smartphone is due for a makeover next year and the internet has already found leaks pertaining to Galaxy A7's supposed specs.

Popular benchmarking tool GFXBench had listed the device recently, providing some insight into what the new Galaxy could be made of. The model number featured on the tool was SM-A720x, which resembled what last year's Galaxy A7 model number was. So it is safe to say that this could well be the true successor to the A7 line, according to a report from Tech Times.

According to the benchmarking tool, the A7 will sport a 5.5-inch FHD screen, meaning a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels - the same which had come with the 2016 model. The processor running on the new A7 will be the new Exynos chipset 7870, which is a powerful 1.8 GHz Cortex A53 octa-core chip made by Samsung. It will feature a 14nm architecture with a Mali T830 GPU with OpenGL ES 3.1 functionality. The same processor can be found in Samsung's Galaxy J7 (2016).

The device is expected to come with 3GB of RAM and storage consisting of 24GB, with expandable memory, according to Indian Express.

The most notable feature on the handset are the updated camera modules, now featuring two 16MP cameras on the front and rear of the device. This variant could be Samsung's first handset to have a front-facing camera above the 8MP segment. Whether the camera will feature 4K recording is yet to be confirmed.

Since the A series of Galaxy smartphone had originally been released last December, the public can expect the new generation of A series smartphones to release during December of this year as well, according to Android Geeks.

The A7 is the higher-end variant of the A series, with the A3 and A5 positioned just below it.
