The Samsung Galaxy A series continues to expand and today marks the debut of the Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) handset, that was previously leaked in benchmarks. This model was announced in South Korea and it’s detailed after the break.
The design is very similar to the one of the predecessor and the device has a slim and flush metal unibody design. The screen is a 5.7 incher with an AMOLED panel and Full HD resolution. Then there’s 3 GB of RAM inside, 32 GB of storage and the chipset is a very familiar face, the Exynos 7420 of the Galaxy S6 lineup. It remains a relevant CPU even today and quite powerful, being a 14 nm chip.
On the camera front, we’ve got a 16 megapixel main camera, an 8 MP front shooter and from what we understood the main cam could also be borrowed from the Galaxy S6. The OS is Android 6.0.1 with a healthy doze of the new Grace UX, that debuted on the Note 7. We also get an Always On Display feature, a fingerprint scanner within the Home button and a 3300 mAh battery.
Samsung Pay compatibility is also available. The product is available on preorder exclusively in blue on SK Telecom, priced at $580.
