We know very clearly that Samsung is struggling in the Chinese market with its smartphones. But maybe things are about to change for the company with the new smartphone hidden in its sleeves. Samsung Galaxy A71 5G will be the latest smartphone on the Chinese market if we are considering the rumors. Samsung builds the device after the company has done its best to take note of the Chinese market.
Samsung and Its 5G Models for China
Samsung is not in the first model of a 5G smartphone. Samsung W20 5G is one of the premium models, a foldable model, but for another segment. So if the trend of the 5G smartphones will explode starting with 2020, then Samsung is planning on releasing its 5G mid-segment device on the market.
However, even if Samsung hasn’t officially confirmed the launching of the new model, our leaks revealed some internal codes for the phone. For example, Samsung is using the internal code SM-A7160 for the international markets, and China is actually referring to Samsung Galaxy A71 5G. Of course, these are only deductions, but going further, the internal code SM-N976B was the one used for the international markets and the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G. For the Chinese market, the code used for the same phone was SM-N9760.
Also, if our deduction is correct, that means that the number SM-A7160 is actually for the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G for China. Moving on from the many deductions, we have another hot information about this phone. A71 5G will come with an Exynos 980 chipset. If the leaks are real, we will have the first Samsung device that is using this chipset. The upgrade is enormous because the chipset is an octa-core processor for the 8nm platform, and it can support the Wi-fi 6 and a camera setup up to 108Mp.
Finally, according to the rumors, Samsung Galaxy A71 5G will have 128GB internal storage and a Mali G-76 GPU. Until further information about the new phone, we have to wait and see if the phone will be for China, built in China, or imported.
