5G-equipped Samsung SGH-N378 spotted on GeekBench
A new 5G-enabled Samsung smartphone was discovered on GeekBench by a well-known insider and includes some device specs. The listing bears the model number “Samsung SGH-N378”. Based on the GeekBench score, the phone is believed to be powered by the 5G-enabled Snapdragon 759 chipset. The leak also includes additional details such as 6GB of RAM, an Adreno 619 GPU, and Android 11.
the Snapdragon 750G chipset is one of From Qualcomm exclusive, newer and economical 5G Offerings. the report by GizmoChina speculates that this could be a precursor to the upcoming Galaxy A52 5G, which has been linked to the Snapdragon 750G by previous leaks. In addition, the phone also looks like the Samsung A42 5G, which is already announced.
However, what is puzzling is the model number SGH-N378, which is different from other models in the same range. While this may not be indicative of anything in particular and could have been quite random in the development and pre-release software, it coincidentally bears a strong similarity to the notation for older Samsung style models prior to 2013.
The mysterious notation is clearly different from the Galaxy A42 5G’s SM-A426B and SM-A426B / DS. The closest model to the notation is reportedly the Galaxy J.
The new model number could also suggest an entirely new Galaxy family in the offing, although Samsung already has quite a few device families to potentially add the new model number to. The Galaxy M12, with a design quite similar to the Galaxy A42, has also been in the rumors lately.
