Samsung Galaxy A8 specs listed by leaked GFXBench result

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy A8 was spotted today in a leaked GFXBench result, complete with most of its hardware specifications. This news comes not long since we told you that the Samsung Galaxy A8 is expected to launch with a fingerprint reader in multiple markets around Asia and Europe.

Right from the bat, the most interesting thing that the leaked benchmark result reveals is that the smartphone might come with a 5.5-inch display, and not a 5.7-inch panel as previously rumored. The resolution is listed at 1080 by 1920 pixels (Full HD), in line with the previously rumored specs.

The rest of the specs correspond exactly to the previous rumors, including here a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset paired with 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of integrated storage space. Today's leak also indicates that the device, most likely a prototype at this point, runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, the latest version of Android currently available.

The Galaxy A8 version that was recently put through the GFXBench tests comes with a 16MP primary camera. From the looks of it, this will be the primary update over last year's Samsung Galaxy A7, a smartphone that also features the Snapdragon 615, 2GB of RAM, and a 5.5-inch display running at 1080 by 1920 pixels, but only a 13MP primary camera.

As this new leak indicates that the Galaxy A8 will be very similar to the Galaxy A7, we're inclined to believe that the smartphone will indeed come with a fingerprint reader as previously rumored. Otherwise, the Galaxy A8 would be a tad too similar to its predecessor.

Like most smartphone manufacturers, Samsung tests multiple versions of its upcoming handsets. This means that some of the specs listed by the leaked GFXBench result might not make it to the final device.

Educate yourself: That's exactly THE problem with Android, massively amplified by Sammy's Galaxy Whatevers.

Aren't there enough choices in the whole Android world to choose from? I know. Choice is good. But I'm more concerned with how much this choices would sell.

LOL......nice. All of a sudden your worry went from people to Samsung ? Trust me, if they weren't selling Samsung wouldn't be making them. After all, they are answerable to their BoD. So stop worrying about Samsung not being able to sell. There is no such thing as too much choice. If you don't like choices simply close your eyes no one is shoving it down your throat. There are different people with different taste and needs in different countries. Get over it ! I for one know someone who doesn't like the new S6 design or 2k display on phone and prefers Alpha and A Series' design. He might buy this phone instead of compromising. What's wrong in that ? World doesn't revolve around you m8 and what you think is too many choices might be a perfect phone for someone else.
