Samsung’s next phone Galaxy A8 after passing through Chinese certification base TENAA and US mobile certification body FCC and getting it’s specs outted has a new hands-on video courtesy of TENAA.
The phablet sized device in the 3 mins video posted on YouTube shows-off the phones bezels, it’s metal chasis and the camera shooters. The 5.7″ Samsung Galaxy A8 is a pretty interesting Sammy device, in that this new A-comer is the slimmest of all Samsung devices at just 5.9mm (157.7mm x 76.7mm x 5.9mm).
The device features Samsung’s signature Super AMOLED display, the display seems to be identical to the one in the Galaxy Note 3 – sporting FullHD resolution and 386ppi density. Powering the device is Qualcomm’s popular mid-range chip – the Snapdragon 615. It is by no means beastly, but is perfectly capable with four Cortex A53 cores, clocked at 1.7 GHz and another four at 1.0 GHz. The chipset comes equipped with an Adreno 405 GPU and CAT4 LTE connectivity.
On the memory segment, there’s 2GB RAM and 16GB of onboard storage ROM. Thankfully, there is also a microSD card slot for adding extra space. The camera setup is comprised of a 16MP main shooter and a 5MP selfie one. The physical home button is also equipped a fingerprint sensor, as was previously rumored, although here it is referred to as a “biometric authentication system”. The whole thing is powered by a 3050 mAh battery and boots Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with Samsung’s own TouchWiz on top.
At the moment though, there is no telling what the asking price of the Samsung Galaxy A8 is or when it would be officially released.
