Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) makes appearance on GFXBench

At 5.9mm thick, the Samsung Galaxy A8 is the thinnest handset offered by the manufacturer. Now, Samsung is working on the sequel to the device as the Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) has been benchmarked by GFXBench. Based on that test, the phone will come with a 5.1-inch display carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Under the hood is the Exynos 7420 chipset, which powered the last generation of Samsung's high-end handsets.

The Exynos 7420 will come with an octa-core 2.1GHz CPU and the Mali-T760 MP8 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage. A 16MP camera is on back, with a 5MP camera in front for shooting selfies. Unfortunately, there is no word about the thickness of the phone, but we do expect Samsung to keep it svelte.

The Galaxy A8 (2016) recently showed up on India's import-export site Zauba. Listed by its model number (SM-A810F), the listing showed a 5.7-inch screen on the handset. Of course, Zauba doesn't seem to be the most reliable source of screen-size information lately with its recent listing of a 6-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
