Samsung Galaxy A8 2016 Edition to Unleash Superior Performance over the Original

August 2, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Samsung Galaxy A8 wasn’t a device that grabbed the South Korean company’s flagship status. But it still holds a special place, as the 2015 edition of Galaxy A8 was the first among Samsung devices to feature a uni-metallic design.

Now, Samsung is all set to give a big boost to the series with the 2016-edition of its Galaxy A8 device, codenamed SM-A810. According to a new leak, Samsung Galaxy A8 this year will come with heavy reinforcement including display and processor tweaks.

Accordingly, the all new Galaxy A8 will have a powerful Exynos 7420 chipset placed under its hood instead of the Snapdragon 615 chipset, putting forward a better performance with its octa-core processors clocked at 2.1GHz. Also, the new Galaxy A8 will have 3GB RAM instead of the 2GB provided in the original model, and will also feature an improved storage space of 32GB.


Besides, Samsung is also bringing in changes with regard to the dimensions. The 5.7-inch screen is getting replaced with a new 5.1-inch screen, which can irk the big-screen savvy section of smartphone lovers. However, Samsung seems to have did a good job considering that the Full HD resolution is still intact, leading to a better pixel density. The camera specs remain the same in the device, with both the Galaxy A8 featuring a 16MP rear unit and a 5MP front shooter.

It’s still unclear when Samsung will have the official unveiling of the new Galaxy A8. Going by the launch date of last year’s A8, the unveiling can be expected to take place this month. The pricing of the device is said to be at about $205.
