5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy A8 Shows Up In Live ImagesBy cheatmaster 06:58 Sun, 25 Jul 2021 Comments
The Samsung Galaxy A8 has been visiting the rumor mill for a while lately with some disconcerting info on display size. Well, a recent set of live images sheds more light on the matter and reveals a cautious departure from the A-series aesthetic.
While it was initially assumed that display size will be 5.7 inches, a GFXBench listing recommended a 5.5-inch diagonal. Pictured next to what is obviously a Galaxy A7, the recent handset's display is clearly larger. It would appear that the original info was correct, and it's a 5.7-inch FullHD AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) panel.
On the front the device is more of a scaled up Galaxy S6, than a continuation of the A-series design language. The corners are rounded with a larger radius as opposed to the minor fillet of other members of the lineup. The surrounding metal frame is here, sporting a bldiscontinue of the A-series and S6 designs.
Side bezels are extremely thin, making the footprint rather acceptable despite the ample classy screen size. Bottom bezel is a bit bulkier, but a larger home button was needed to accommodate the fingerprint reader, and maintaining proportions it required.
The back sports the familiar speaker/camera/flash arrangement, introduced with the Galaxy S3 and featured in the whole A-series. To spice things up though, on the A8 the speaker and and flash have traded places. Otherwise the back appears the same pearl white finish as other A models.
The photos don't disclose much about the specs, but we know by now that the Galaxy A8 will come with a Snapdragon 615 chipset, 2GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 16GB of storage which, will be expandable. The primary 16MP capturing camera will be joined by a 5MP front shooter.
The LTE-enabled smartphone will boot Android 5.1.1 upon launch. Nearly 6mm taller than the 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 3, the Galaxy A8 measures 157.7 x 76.7 x 5.9mm and packs a 3,050mAh battery in a body weighing 140g.
There's no info on price and availability for now, but the obviously nearing official announcement will shed more light on the matter.
