Samsung unveils the Galaxy A8, its thinnest smartphone ever

Next month, Samsung is expected to launch its new Galaxy Note 5 flagship, but today, the company quietly added another device to the upper end of its range. The new Galaxy A8 is technically a mid-range handset, but features some pretty decent specs - and it also happens to be the thinnest smartphone Samsung has ever released.

The Galaxy A8 is just 5.9mm thick, but still manages to squeeze in plenty of desirable features. Its key specs include:
5.7-inch Super AMOLED with Full HD (1920x1080px) resolution
Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 (MSM8939) processor
16GB / 32GB storage options (plus microSD card support up to 128GB)
16MP rear camera
5MP front-facing camera
Bluetooth 4.1
Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n
3050mAh battery
Dual-SIM option
Fingerprint sensor
158 x 76.8 x 5.9mm; 151g

Another new phont they have just released one at a stupid price and now another is coing out, they need to learn that most people cant afford these stupid prices for such low spec phones


RepPower Always had iphone. Might consider getting this one, looks beautiful

Look into Windows stuff instead. I just got a MacBook Pro because I love how well Apple products work together (I have my MacBook, a Hackintosh I built, and my iPhone). Windows 10 1-upped Apple's stuff by A LOT assuming you have all windows gear. I am pretty hyped about it.

I think this is just getting kinda out of hand, Apple has made too many iPhone's and now we are gonna be going with Samsung right behind them. This is kinda crazy In my opinion. I feel why can't they just keep releasing updates instead updating the phone to smaller proportions. This is just my opinion.


might conisder getting this never had samsung phone


Looks nice but I'll stick with my iPhone.


Yeah this is really nice, might look into getting this when this comes out.
