Samsung Galaxy A40 benchmarked with Exynos 7885 chipset

Peter, 16 January 2019

The Samsung Galaxy A40 has gone through Geekbench. It is powered by an Exynos 7885 chipset, which was recently featured on the Galaxy M20. The higher-end A-series phone does have more RAM – 4GB.

Though that’s not that much, going just a step up to the Galaxy A50 with an Exynos 9610 chipset and 4GB or 6GB of RAM. The difference in multi-core performance is tangible, in single-core less so. Both use Cortex-A73 as the “big” cores, but in different configurations – 2+6 and 4+4 – which explains the difference in multi-core power.

GeekBench 4.1 (single-core)

Higher is better

  • Samsung Galaxy A50
    1693
  • Samsung Galaxy A40
    1319

GeekBench 4.1 (multi-core)

Higher is better

  • Samsung Galaxy A50
    5031
  • Samsung Galaxy A40
    3976

The Samsung Galaxy A40 will reportedly have an AMOLED display while the A50 will use an LCD. The new A-series is coming to Europe, starting with these two phones first. They may have in-display fingerprint readers as well as dual cameras.
