Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) surfaces on AnTuTu; renders leak?

Back in July, when the weather was warmer and the days longer, the Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) made an appearance on GFXBench, which gave us a pretty good look at some of the specs on the device. For example, we learned that the phone will carry a 5.1-inch 5.7-inch screen (see below) with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. We also learned that last generation's Exynos 7420 chipset will be found under the hood 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 found on back, with a 5MP camera in front to shoot selfies and handle video chats. Android 6.0.1 is pre-installed.

Today, we discovered that the Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) also made a run through the AnTuTu benchmark test. There were some differences compared to the GFXBench specs. AnTuTu shows that the Galaxy A8 (2016) will have an 8MP rear-facing camera compared to the 16MP listed on GFXBench. And instead of the 32GB of flash memory seen by GFXBench, the model run through AnTuTu has 64GB of the stuff.

The SM-A810F is the sequel to last year's Samsung Galaxy A8 (SM-A800) and the phones have spawned at least one mystery. While both GFXBench and AnTuTu list the handset as carrying a 5.1-inch screen, that would be a pretty big drop from the OG Galaxy A8's 5.7-inch display. And when the SM-A810F was imported into India, Zauba noted that it came with a 5.7-inch screen.

The evidence suggests that the Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) will sport that larger 5.7-inch glass. With the FCC visit scratched off the 'to-do list,' we could see the handset officially unveiled in the not too distant future. While we wait, you can check out some renders of the device disseminated by tipster @OnLeaks. Last year's model weighed in at just 5.9mm thick. The Galaxy A8 (2016) is rumored to measure a more zaftig 7.3mm thin.
