Samsung has already launched 3 metal body A series phones—the Galaxy A3, A5, and A7. Now we are expecting Samsung to add a new smartphone to its A-series codenamed Galaxy A8.
According to leaked benchmark from GFXBench, the Galaxy A8 will offer a 5.7 inch Super AMOLED Display with Full HD resolution, Octa Core Snapdragons 615 SoC, 2 GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, 15MP & 5MP cameras, and Android Lollipop 5.1 out of the box. The design will likely be same as other A-series i.e a metal uniform body.
NOWHEREELSE.FR has posted some leaked pictures of the Galaxy A8 that shows an extremely thin device measuring just 5.9 millimeters in thickness, which is thinner than the Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6. Despite being so thin, the device comes with a huge 3050 mAh battery, which is non-removable since the phone has a unibody design.
Other specification suggests the phone has a hybrid dual SIM slot with the second SIM slot working as a port for either a SIM card or a microSD card. There is no official word on when it’s going to be unveiled, but it should be launched in the second quarter of this year.
