Since past few days, the rumor mill for the Galaxy A8 was on a roll and yesterday the Korean Tech giant Samsung finally went out officially announcing the Samsung Galaxy A8 as the thinnest Galaxy handset and joins the club of sub 6mm Android handsets.
To be precise, the Samsung Galaxy A8 is 5.9mm thin and weighs just 151 grams inspite of being made with some of the very premium chassis materials. The Galaxy A8 hosts a 5.7” 1080p Super AMOLED display, which also makes it to be the largest handset in the premium metallic A-series. Under the hood lies a powerful octa-core Snapdragon 615 chipset, clocked at 1.5GHz with 2GB of RAM memory support. The device comes in two storage options of 16/32GB of internal memory along with a microSD card slot.
The primary camera is topped to a whopping 16MP ISOCELL sensor, while at the front lies a 5MP secondary snapper with f/1.9 wide aperture. Of-course the handset runs the latest Android 5.1 Lollipop skinned with the company’s own TouchWiz UI over the top. The handset has got a excellent battery capacity of 3050mAh. Just like the other premium flagships, the Galaxy A8 too has a fingerprint scanner baked within its home key.
The handset has been officially kept on the company’s China website, which might be the first region it is heading towards. We have yet to get the details for its global availability and pricing. As of for now check out all the official images for the handset below.
