While there has been no official confirmation, Samsung is probably working on sequels to its Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A7 smartphones, a pair of devices nearing a year old. The specs for the two handsets have been leaked as they passed through benchmarking software GFXBench, and as we expected the sequels will be merely incremental in what new stuff they bring to the table.The Galaxy A3 (SM-A310) is packing a 4.7-inch screen with 720p resolution, Samsung's own Exynos 7580 SoC clocked at 1.5GHz under the hood, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of native storage that we hope is expandable, a 13 megapixel rear lens and a 5 megapixel selfie shooter, and Android 5.1.1. The Galaxy A7 (SM-A710) will sport a 5.5-inch panel with Full HD 1080p resolution, a Qualcomm made 64-bit Snapdragon 615 chipset with 8 cores and clocked at 1.5GHz, and 3GB of RAM. Elsewhere there will be 16GB of native storage capacity that we hope is expandable, and the same camera package as the Galaxy A3. There is no word yet on when Samsung will launch this pair of devices, or indeed whether the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A8 will get the update treatment.
