Unreleased Samsung Galaxy A8 featured in hands-on video
With less than 6 mm thickness (157.7 x 76.7 x 5.9 mm), the Galaxy A8 is expected to break cover as Samsung’s thinnest smartphone yet. The unreleased smartphone was featured in a hands-on video that was uploaded to YouTube on June 30 (Tuesday).
The source of the video is said to be Chinese telecoms regulations agency, TEENA, so you wouldn’t call this a leaked video even as the playback dished out spoilers on the upcoming Samsung device.
From the hands-on, the device appears to be clad in metal, with a USB port and headphone jack positioned under the body. Unlike the company’s flagship Galaxy S6 series, the Samsung Galaxy A8 has its speakers at the back and if our guesses are right, the smartphone doesn’t have a protruding camera (see 0.16) like many popular flagships.
On the phone’s documentation page at TEENA’s website, the listing says the Galaxy A8 will have a 5.7-inch 1080p display (at least for the model that will be released in China), 2GB RAM, 1.5GHz octa-core CPU, 16GB of expandable storage, 3050mAh battery and 16MP/5MP rear/front camera duo. The Samsung Galaxy A8 will be booting on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box.
A release date hasn’t been discussed by Samsung who are yet to publicly make any acknowledgement of the device’s existence.
