We’ve heard a lot about the upcoming mid-range Samsung Galaxy A8, including certification details from China’s TENAA. But a new leaked video is probably the closest we’re getting to actually seeing and touching the (hopefully) soon to be launched phablet. And surprisingly enough, it might also have come from TENAA, giving a bit of “credibility” to the product show on the video. It may have just confirmed some of the things we’ve known about the Galaxy A8 and given us a glimpse of what to actually expect.
The video may be blurry and unfocused a lot of times, but you can still see the Galaxy A8, front and center. showing off some of the details that we have been hearing about Samsung’s new mid-range phablet. The 5.7-inch Super AMOLED Display and the 16MP maiin camera is shown off here, and the specs are even included as well. It is indeed powered by the octa-core Snapdragon 615, with four Cortex A53 at 1.7GHz and another four at 1.0GHz.
Measuring at 157.7mm x 76.7mm x 5.9mm, it looks like it will be the slimmest smartphone to come from Samsung so far. It comes with a 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage, which is pretty okay, especially since you can add more space through a microSD card. The Galaxy A8 also comes with a “biomettric authentication system”, meaning you can use your fingerprint to unlock the device from the home button. It will already have the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop but the TouchWiz, Samsung’s own UI, will be on top.
The only thing missing from this video is actually when the Samsung Galaxy A8 will be available, where you can buy it, and how much it will cost. But we’ll probably be hearing more about that in the next few days or weeks.
