According to past reports, the Samsung Galaxy A8 will measure 158 x 76.77 x 5.94 mm, making the device the slimmest smartphone ever made by the Korean tech giant. Like other Galaxy A series handsets, the Galaxy A8 sports a metal frame. It is not a high-end device, but it does come with pretty premium features.

The Galaxy A8 is expected to sport a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, a new and slim 16-megapixel ISOCELL rear-facing camera made by Samsung, a 5-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera, 16 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, and a 3,050 mAh battery. The photos also reveal that the smartphone’s home button doubles as a fingerprint scanner just like the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge.

As for pricing, the Galaxy A8 is said to set buyers back the equivalent of £325 in China. It is yet to be determined if the smartphone will be available in the UK.
