Here's the chipset that could be powering the Samsung Galaxy S9

We previous heard a number of specifications on the new Galaxy A7 smartphone after the device appeared in some benchmarks.

Earlier this year, Samsung announced the 2017 variant of its Galaxy J3 smartphone.

We still have some months before the alleged release date of Samsung Galaxy S9, which should be February 2018 during the MWC event in Barcelona.

The global unlocked variant of the Galaxy A5, with model number SM-A530F, will have a 412 x 846 screen and run on Android 7.1.1, stated the report.

First discovered by Dutch publication Galaxy Club, the patent shows how Samsung's version of Android will fit on a phone with two screens, and also displays a few potential use cases.

Speculations are rife that the 2018 Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 smartphones would be featuring Infinity Display ranging between 5.2-inches to 5.7-inches.

The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) is expected to be powered by Exynos 7885 Octa-core SoC, paired with 4 GB LPDDR4 RAM and 64 GB onboard flash storage with a dedicated micro SD card slot (up to 256 GB).

Apart from that, the GFX listing also reveals that the phone will come with all the necessary sensors like accelerometer, gyroscope and proximity sensor and other features like Bluetooth, GPS, and WiFi. If you want to know more, read the full patent filing at this link. No specifics are known at this point, but the phone will most likely include a display small than 5-inches. As yet there are no details on what sort of camera the handset will feature.

That part of the chip isn't new information, as Samsung had already revealed it was working on 6CA back in July, but until we get more information on things like the upgraded GPU it's the most specific example of what the Exynos 9810 will be capable of.

Similarly, the Samsung SM-J337 that has been spotted on GFXBench could be a lower-end variant of the upcoming Galaxy J3 (2018) that is expected to be launched next year.
