A variant of Samsung’s Galaxy A8s mid-range Android smartphone with the model number SM-G887N was recently spotted on the FCC and Wi-Fi Alliance websites. While the Galaxy A8s is currently on sale only in China, it is soon expected to be launched in South Korea. The SM-G887N variant of the Galaxy A8s has made an appearance on the Geekbench benchmark database, confirming its core hardware specifications.
Galaxy A8s SM-G887N Variant Features 6GB RAM
The SM-G887N Geekbench listing confirms the South Korean version of the Galaxy A8s will be powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 octa-core processor as the Chinese version. In the memory department, the device caught on Geekbench packs 6GB of RAM. In China, however, the Galaxy A8s comes with up to 8GB of RAM. The benchmarking scores do not reveal any surprises. A single-core score of 1,813 and a multi-core score of 5,373 are both in line with what is expected from a Snapdragon 710-powered smartphone. On the software front, the South Korean version will be running on the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system at launch. Both the Chinese and South Korean versions of the smartphone are likely to receive the Android Pie update before the end of the second quarter.
Launched in China last month, the Galaxy A8s is Samsung’s first smartphone to sport an Infinity-O display. The smartphone’s IPS LCD display panel measures 6.4-inches diagonally and offers 1080 x 2340 Full HD+ resolution. On the back of the Galaxy A8s is an impressive triple camera setup with a 24MP primary snapper, 10MP telephoto lens, and a 5MP depth sensor. The handset comes equipped with a 24MP selfie camera on the front with an f/2.0 aperture lens. Connectivity features offered by the Galaxy A8s include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, NFC, FM radio, USB Type-C port, and 4G VoLTE. The smartphone is fueled by a non-removable 3400mAh capacity battery with fast charging support.
