Samsung recently lifted the lid on the thinnest smartphone it has ever made, the Samsung Galaxy A8, in China. Sadly, the Korean tech giant failed to mention pricing. Thankfully, Chinese-speaking CNMO has the information we are looking for.
According to the report, the 16 GB variant of the Samsung Galaxy A8 will set interested parties in China back around £330, while the 32 GB version of the smartphone will cost around £362. The Android smartphone in the world will be available in China this month.
To recap, the Samsung Galaxy A8 sports a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, a 16-megapixel rear-facing ISOCELL camera with f/ 1.9 aperture, a superior 5-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera (like that on the Galaxy S6), 16 GB to 32 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor with each core clocked at 1.5 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, and a 3,050 mAh battery. It also comes with a fingerprint scanner integrated into the home button. It runs Android 5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box with TouchWiz slapped on top. It measures 158 mm x 77 mm x 5.9 mm and weighs in at 151 grams. Like other Galaxy A series handsets, it sports a metal frame.
Although the smartphone will be available in China soon, it is yet to be determined if the device will see the light of day in other markets such as the UK.
