Samsung is making a beautiful phone, the thinnest yet. We love thin phones, they look so beautiful and well crafted. That’s why in the recent past Samsung has gone all out to make thin phones, The Samsung Galaxy A series. In these series we already have the Samsung Galaxy A3, Samsung Galaxy A5 and Samsung Galaxy A7, that in addition to being thin, are also all metal bodies.

To continue with the series, Samsung has already registered Samsung Galaxy A6 (apparently Samsung launched Samsung Galaxy A7 forgetting that Galaxy A6 ought to have come first), Samsung Galaxy A8 and Samsung Galaxy A9 trademarks. In the works, is Samsung Galaxy A8.

Samsung Galaxy A8 is the mid range phone you would love to own. It has many features you already like. For example the screen on Samsung Galaxy A8 will be a 5.7 inches with a HD resolution of 1920 and 1080 pixels. That’s a huge screen that matches the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Note 4 by screen size, but if you have handled Samsung Galaxy Note 4 you know how a 5.7 inch display can be made to neatly fit in a really small body.

The body of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be in the range of 157.7 mm by 76.7 mm by 5.9 mm. Compare these dimensions with those of Samsung Galaxy Note 4 which are 153.5 mm by  78.6  mm by 8.5 mm. The Galaxy A8 will be a bit taller and a bit wider but extremely thin, but you will still be able to hold it comfortably since it is already narrower than the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 which features a width of 79.2 mm.

It’s not just the size and screen real estate that should wow you. The phone will feature a 16 MP rear camera and just like Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, the front facing camera will have a whooping 5 MP sensor, although the sensors for the Samsung Galaxy A8 cameras might not be the first class sensors in the Galaxy S6 phones.

The story doesn’t stop there. Samsung Galaxy A8 will be powered by two huge quad core processors with the first clocking 1.7 GHz and the second clocking 1.0 GHz speeds. The processors will be 64-bit Snapdragon 615 giving users an octa core power house. The RAM won’t be the now standardized 3 GB found in almost all high end devices but the 2 GB RAM should be expected to run the Android 5.0.1 Lolipop just fine.

Lastly it’s the battery power. Devices such as Infinix Hot Note X551 already feature batteries with up to 4000 mAh so the news that the Samsung Galaxy A8 will be powered by a 3050 mAh battery shouldn’t be such a big news, but such a battery should be able to power on the device for more than 12 hours of normal use.

And as I mentioned in the title, don’t be too excited about Samsung Galaxy A8, you need to be a Chinese to own one as the phone is being made solely for Chinese.
