Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) leaked manual shows Galaxy Note 7's Grace UX

5

The Galaxy A8 (2016) is one of Samsung's upcoming Android smartphones. The device emerged for the first time weeks ago when it's been spotted in AnTuTu's database. A set of pictures showing the unannounced handset leaked online as well, so we know pretty much everything about the Galaxy A8 (2016) aside from price tag and release date.

One other piece of information that you might not be aware of recently popped up and we're here to report about it. The manual that comes with the Galaxy A8 (2016) has been published online and some of the pages describe what appears to be the Grace UX, which made its debut on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

Unfortunately, the Galaxy A8 (2016) won't come with Android 7.0 Nougat onboard, instead, the Grace UX will be based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system. Since Samsung takes quite a lot of time to release major OS updates, it might be a problem for a premium handset like the Galaxy A8 (2016) to come to market without the latest version of Android.

On the other hand, the Galaxy A8 (2016) looks really nice from what we've been able to see in the last pictures of the smartphone leaked online. The metal that was used in most of Galaxy A series phones will be replaced with glass, while the rest of the phone's specs look more than decent.

According to the latest benchmarks, Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) will be powered by an Exynos 7420 processor, coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. No word on microSD card slot for memory expansion yet.

Furthermore, the upcoming handset is likely to feature a large 5.7-inch display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution, as well as large 3,500 mAh battery. Also, the Galaxy A8 (2016) will pack a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera, along with a 5-megapixel camera in the front.
