Galaxy A8 is a good looking phone, it’s distinctly mid-range on the inside. The phone has a 5.7-inch, 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, and a 16-megapixel rear camera. It’s supposedly using a Snapdragon 615, which we first saw in some of last year’s mid-range devices. It’s selling for ¥3,199.00 (around $515 USD), which is a bit on the pricier side given some of its specs.


The handset is now listed on the Korean manufacturer’s China website and we can finally say that the company’s thinnest phone to date is a reality and relieve ourselves of the sea of information that has been bombarding the rumor mill.


In terms of connectivity the Samsung Galaxy offers 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS with Glonass and Beidou support, as well as NFC.


The Android 5.1.1 Lollipop-based Samsung Galaxy A8 runs TouchWiz UI on top and features two SIM slots, of which one also acts as a microSD card slot. This means that users would either get a dual-SIM support without a microSD card storage expansion or a single-SIM support with microSD card expansion.
