Most of the talk around Samsung phones lately has been in regards to their new Galaxy S6 phones, however, they've also updated their, for lack of a better word, luxury lineup with the release of the new Galaxy A8. The new A8 is thin, real thin. At 5.9mm thick, the A8 is 0.4mm thinner than the previous Galaxy A7 as well as it is thinner than the iPhone 6. The A8 still packs a 5.7 inch screen, eight-core CPU, and all the other features you'd expect in a Galaxy phone. Oh, did I mention the A8 is all metal and has a very high-end finish? Realtechtoday has the details and all the pictures.
Phones labeled “A” in the Galaxy series, gained in popularity thanks to the luxury design, with much use of aluminum and ultra thin enclosures, although in specifications can’t be measured with the “S” series, which are still designed for those who want the most from their smartphone.
According to leaked information, the latest in the series, Galaxy A8, will have the smallest case of all Samsung phones so far, with a thickness of only 5,9 mm, which is less than 0,4 mm Galaxy A7. This makes it much thinner than almost all competitors, including the iPhone 6. The development will be a mix of plastic and aluminum, as well as all Galaxy A model yet.
