Samsung is gearing up to launch a new ultra-slim smartphone, the Galaxy A8, in the very near future, and the company is finding it difficult to contain leaks. The latest leaked information on the A8 comes from SamMobile, essentially giving us a complete picture of what hardware the handset will include.
According to SamMobile's sources, the Galaxy A8 will come with a new 16-megapixel ISOCELL camera sensor, the LSI3P3, which is said to be one of Samsung's slimmest rear camera modules yet. The LSI3P3 has a pixel size of just 1.0 µm but a module thickness of only 5mm: 23% thinner than the Galaxy S6's Sony IMX240 sensor at the expense of larger pixels.
Internally the Galaxy A8 will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC with eight CPU cores and 64-bit support, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of storage. The handset will also come with a 5.7-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display at 386 PPI, a five megapixel front facing camera, and Android 5.1.1 on board.
The Galaxy A8 is set to be Samsung's slimmest device ever at just 5.9mm thick, featuring a metal body similar to its predecessors. Curiously, Samsung will somehow be able to fit a 3,050 mAh battery inside this device, at least according to various reports.
Considering the Galaxy A8 has already passed through the FCC, and basically all of its specifications have been revealed, the handset's official launch shouldn't be too far away.
