Samsung appears to be gearing up to release one more smartphone from its popular A-series, and is called the Galaxy A4. The company has already launched the Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5, Galaxy A7, Galaxy A8, and Galaxy A9, including their upgraded versions but not an A4 or an A6 so far.

The South Korean technology giant has just released its flagship device, the Galaxy Note 7, and now it appears to be ready to get into budget and mid-range smartphones. It has now emerged that the company is working on Galaxy A4.

According to a report by PriceRaja, five models of Samsung device with code name SM-A430FD, SM-A430L, SM-A430X, SM-A430S and SM-A430K have been spotted on Wi-Fi certification listing, giving a hint that its release date is not far off. Samsung hasn't revealed if the code names stand for the Galaxy A4 but it is very likely as the Galaxy A3 (2016) was codenamed A310 and A510 for the A5 (2016). 

A Samsung device with code name SM-A430U, believed to be the Galaxy A4, was earlier spotted on Zauba, a website that keeps track of imports and exports in India, for testing. Three units of SM-A430U were shipped from South Korea to Bangalore, India, for R&D purpose and evaluation and not for retail sale. Each unit comes with a price tag of Rs. 31,757 (price not final).

Samsung is tight-lipped on the device, but reports have claimed that the device could come with a 5.5-inch HD display, powered by an Exynos processor, runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system, and comes packed with a 3GB RAM.
