The Chinese telecommunications governing body has certified a device, bearing a model number SM-A8000, which we know by now is the upcoming Galaxy A8.
The TENAA listing confirms that the Samsung Galaxy A8 will come with 5.7” 1080p Super AMOLED display and is powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset arming 2GB of RAM and 1.4Ghz octa core processor. For imaging, it houses a 16MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. It will also come with 16GB internal storage.
The Galaxy A8 will run TouchWiz UX based on Android 5.1 Lollipop. It will also offer 4G LTE support, Adreno 405 GPU and a 3,050 mAh battery.
Number crunchers will be thrilled to know that the Galaxy A8 measures 158 × 76.77 × 5.94 mm, which makes it Samsung’s thinnest smartphone.
Though it may be a bit on the long end of the 5.7-inch spectrum (the Galaxy Note 4 is 4.5mm shorter), the new phablet is impressively light at only 142g.
