Purported Samsung Galaxy J8 (2018) with Android 8.0 appears on benchmark listings


Samsung mobile last month introduced the 2018 iteration o of the Galaxy A series of smartphones with the launch of the Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018), and while the company is widely expected to unveil the Galaxy S9 and its variants at the upcoming MWC, a new smartphone has today popped up on the popular GFXBenmark site, a possible indication that the Galaxy S9 may not a loner at the MWC.

As per a report on GSMarena, a new phone from Samsung which is alleged to be a member of the affordable J series of Samsung Galaxy phones has surfaced on both the Geekbench and GFXBench sites. Codenamed SM-J720F, the new device is said to be the Samsung Galaxy J8 (2018) – successor to the Galaxy J7 (2017).

It’s also worth noting that the US variant of the Galaxy J7 came with the model number SM-J727, while the variants available in other parts of the Globe in 2016 and 2017 have the model numbers SM-J710F and SM-J730F, so the recently Benchmarked device  (SM-J720F) could be a US bond model.

The GFXBench reveals that the Samsung Galaxy J8 (2018) will sport a 5.5” display with standard aspect ratio and an HD resolution (1280 x 720 pixels), along with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. The device will house the  Exynos 7885 Octa chipset clocked at 1.6 GHz coupled with Mali G-71 GPU. GFXBench says a 12-megapixel snapper will sit at the back of the device,  while an 8-megapixel camera will sit above the display. The device will be the first Galaxy phone to boot Android Oreo out of the box.
