Features of Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016)

A first look at the new smartphone, you will see a new glass design on both the front and back with an all metal frame between; this makes the A8(2016) more attractive and stylish compare with the base version. The screen is well wrapped in a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display which has a similar 1080p resolution (for sharp and clear viewing experience).

The device boots on Android 6.0 Marshmallow for smooth user experience.

In charge of speed and performance inside the Samsung Galaxy A8(2016), there is an Exynos 7420 SoC chipset which 1.4GHz processor (this is the same configuration powering the first version). The CPU is supported by 3GB of RAM for fast response and multitasking; like we always say, such capacity doesn’t need a RAM booster before you launch multiple applications. The storage stands at a 32GB (expandable).

The A(2016) has a fingerprint scanner for fast unlocking and identity security.

Images and video quality are optimized by a 16MP rear unit camera and 5MP selfie shooter.

Samsung A8 (2016) also offers support for WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, MicroUSB but we are yet to ascertain the battery that keeps the light on.

The same 3050mAh battery capacity of the base model is also available in the new Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016).
