The Samsung Galaxy A8, like many devices before it, hasn’t been the most well-kept secret. The handset has seen its fair share of leaks leading up to its official announcement. Which is finally here.
We’ve already heard that the Galaxy A8 will be Samsung’s thinnest phone to date, at only 5.9mm thick, and it turns out that is indeed the case. The Galaxy A8 has been officially unveiled for the market in China, and it looks like that’s the only place it will be available for at least a little while. And for those that remember seeing the Galaxy A8 on video back in June, the official build looks exactly the same.
The Galaxy A8 boasts a 5.7-inch 1920×1080 Super AMOLED display, with a 16-megapixel camera on the back and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera on the other side. It will come in either a 16GB or 32GB variant, with a microSD card slot for good measure. Under the hood, the Galaxy A8 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM and a battery measuring in at 3050mAh. Finally, the Galaxy A8 will run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box.
The Galaxy A8 will be available in gold, black and white. Unfortunately, there’s no word on whether or not the Galaxy A8 will see an official release outside of China.
