Earlier this year we had learnt that Samsung had wanted its metallic Galaxy A lineup expanded by adding ore devices to it. So here is Samsung with the Galaxy A8.
Well the Galaxy A8 was said to be only released in the Chinese market but now it seems that the South Korean giant will not just restrict it to the Chinese market but launch it in various markets in Asia and Europe.
Samsung’s Galaxy A series has been a success in the mid-range market and so that is why Samsung doesn’t want it to restrict it in just one market.
Apart from this it has been learnt that the Galaxy A8 could have a fingerprint scanner on the retail unit and just like the Galaxy S6, the A8 could even have a fingerprint sensor.
Moreover the new Galaxy A8 could even have the same themes support as on Samsung’s latest flagships. If this is done it will be quite a good step by Samsung and should be followed in all its devices.
Now the Galaxy A8 is said to have a 5.7 inch Full HD Super AMOLED display on a 5.9mm thin metallic frame, an octa-core 64 but Snapdragon 615 processor along with a 2GB RAM.
Apart from this the new device will have a 16 megapixel rear camera, a 5 megapixel front-facing camera and 16GB of internal storage. The A8 will also have LTE connectivity and a 3050 mAh battery under its hood and will run the Android 5.0 Lollipop.
