Samsung announced that they will be bringing new A-lineup smartphones to the United States. The lineup included Galaxy A01, A11, A21, A51 5G, and A71 5G. Now, the launch of Galaxy A71 seems near as it has been approved through the Bluetooth SIG. Moreover, there is also news regarding the carrier it will come with and the chipset that will be powering the phone.

Here, A71 is the model where “x” stands for “5G” and “q” seems to be portraying “Qualcomm.”
As you know, Samsung launches phones with different chipsets according to the region. Samsung’s own Exynos is used in Asia whereas they launch phones with Snapdragon chipsets in the USA. Hence, there are two solid hints that Samsung will be using a Snapdragon chipset for Galaxy A71 5G. But the question is which one?
Well, it seems almost impossible for Samsung to use flagship Snapdragon 865 on upper mid-range devices. But they can use Snapdragon 700 series chipsets. Snapdragon 765 and 765G are the two 5G mid-range chipsets offered by Qualcomm. And if we are not wrong, you may see a Snapdragon 765 powered Galaxy A71 5G in the United States. There is also a third chipset, which was launched silently, called Snapdragon 768G which has a minor improvement over the 765 chipsets.
