It looks like Samsung could launch the Galaxy A15 soon considering how additional information concerning the budget Android smartphone continues to surface. After its alleged price and photos, a new benchmark listing revealed how the device's chipset points to improved battery life as the primary form of progress as opposed to making gains in performance or gaming departments.

Samsung Galaxy A15 may deliver a better battery life

In a GeekBench repository (via Galaxy Club), the upcoming Galaxy A15 5G was spotted to run on a new MediaTek Dimensity 6100+ SoC. The chip is configured to feature an octa-core processor which is helmed by two primary cores clocked at 2.2 GHz and six efficiency cores at 2 GHz.  Additionally, the chip is complemented by 4 GB of RAM, though it's unclear if there will be variants with higher configurable memory.

In terms of synthetic scores, the new chip's performance was shown to have remained similar to the Dimensity 700 that is found on the Galaxy A14 which our colleague reviewed. In particular, the single-core is slightly muted at 664 points while the multicore hovers at 1,700 or on par with the older chipset.

While there might not be notable differences in performance, the Dimensity 6100+ could likely give the upcoming Galaxy A15 5G a boost in battery life considering how it was manufactured using the 4 nm process as opposed to the Dimensity 700 with its older 7 nm lithography process. However, there's still no way to tell how long the new chip can stretch the Galaxy A15's endurance in real life.

Other Samsung Galaxy A15 (5G) specifications and price

Beyond the chipset, the Galaxy A15 is reported to arrive in a 4G variant as well, which is believed to rely on a Helio G99 SoC. All models should feature a 6.5-inch AMOLED screen with a 90 Hz refresh rate and Full HD resolution along with a 50 MP main camera. At the same time, Samsung is tipped to use a flatter design on the budget phone which might also be seen on the Galaxy S24.

With the Galaxy A14 introduced in January of this year, it is very possible that Samsung releases the Galaxy A15 and Galaxy A15 5G within the same month in 2024. As for its price, the Galaxy A15 5G model is believed to cost €250 ($265) in Europe. We still do not have any concrete information on a release Stateside, if ever.

What else would you like to see in the Galaxy A15? Do you think Samsung should launch the device with Android 14 out of the box? Tell us your answers in the comments.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
