Last year was a slight disappointment for Samsung with Samsung Galaxy S5 not doing too well. They tried to rectify it by adding the new “A” series with metal body. Samsung has added another device to this series – Galaxy A8 and it looks like Samsung Galaxy S6 but with a bigger display.
Samsung Galaxy A8 will have a 5.7-inch SAMOLED Full HD screen. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 Octa-Core CPU, 2GB of RAM. The internal storage will be 16GB with support for microSD expansion.
Other specs include a 16-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front shooter. The battery capacity will be 3,050 mAh. Most importantly, Galaxy A8 will run on Android 5.1.1.
Although the looks of Galaxy A8 are similar to Galaxy S6, the specs differ a lot. Samsung has tried to make a mid range Samsung Galaxy S6 with metal body.
According to reports, Samsung Galaxy A8 will only be sold in Asian and European markets.
