Samsung decided to match its Galaxy A portfolio to the Galaxy S monikers and announced the Galaxy A8 (2018) and the Galaxy A8+ (2018) in the end of 2017. A phone from the Korean manufacturer has just popped up on Geekbench with model name SM-A750FN.
The phone was benchmarked with Exynos 7885 SoC that has two performance cores at 2.2 GHz and six more for efficiency at 1.6 GHz. The RAM on the SM-A750FN is 4 GB and the phone is listed with Android Oreo 8.0. All specs are the same with the Galaxy A8+ (2018), suggesting the new phone might be different in some other aspects like screen size or camera.
The A8+ (2018) carries an SM-A730xx model number, while its predecessor Galaxy A7 (2017) is codenamed SM-A720xx. Given how the number 4 is considered unlucky in Korea, the SM-A750FN is the logical successor of the Galaxy A8 series. The SM-A750FN might be called Galaxy A9 (2018) but might also be an addition to the A8 portfolio for specific markets.
