Samsung has had a hard time keeping the Galaxy A8 under wraps and now the company has officially announced the phone. Touted as Samsung’s slimmest phone, which is just 5.9mm thick, the Galaxy A8 has been announced for the Chinese market.
The phone is clearly inspired from Galaxy S6 and in fact seems to better the flagship phone in some department. For instance, the Galaxy A8 has a larger 3050mAh battery and microSD card slot, which are missing from the Galaxy S6 family.
Apart from that, the phone has mid-range hardware with 5.7-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor, dual SIM support, 2GB RAM, 16MP main camera, 5MP front-facing camera, 4G LTE, fingerprint sensor and 16GB or 32GB internal memory.
The phone will sell in China for now but expect it to hit other countries soon.
