Samsung announced Galaxy A8 yesterday, which is Samsung’s thinnest phone to date. Samsung didn’t mention the price earlier but thanks to Chinese website CMMO which revealed the actual price of Samsung Galaxy A8.
16GB version of Galaxy A8 will cost you 3,199 CNY (around $515). But if you want more memory, 32GB version of the smartphone will cost you 3,499 CNY (around $564). The price is higher than a mid range phone should have, but provided that its the company’s slimmest phone yet and has a beautiful design, the price seems fair.
Samsung Galaxy A8 comes with a 5.7 inches Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with a screen resolution of 1920×1080. It packs a 16MP main camera along with a 5MP front facing camera. Both cameras are capable of recording 1080p videos.
There’s an octa-core Snapdragon 615 under the hood with an Adreno 405 GPU. It comes with 16GB internal storage which is further expandable with a Micro SD card up to 128 GB. And despite its slim design, Samsung has managed to put a large 3050mAh battery inside the device, which is even larger than the Galaxy S6’s battery.
Galaxy A8 is said to be available in a month or two.
