Samsung's thinnest smartphone ever, the upcoming Galaxy A8, surfaces in newly-leaked images

Samsung Galaxy A8 leaks in real-life pictures
After yesterday's arrival of some real-life images of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy J5, we're totally not expecting yet another round of leaks regarding an incoming Samsung device so soon.

Yet, that seems to be the case - the Samsung Galaxy A8 that we've already heard about just popped up in a handful of real-life images.

First things first, it seems that just like many Samsung devices of late, the Galaxy A8 employs a metal frame, which is in line with Samsung's recent design trends. Size-wise, the suspicions that it will be extremely thing turn out to be seemingly true - it has dimensions of 157.7x76.7x5.9mm and a grand total weight of 140gr, which makes it the thinnest smartphone Samsung has ever made.

Apart from oggling at the images, we also get to know the specs of the device. After much speculation, it is seemingly confirmed that the device will indeed come with a 5.7-inch display and not a 5.5-inch one. As one can easily guess, we are dealing with a Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels.

Powering the device is an octa-core Snapdragon 615 chipset, paired with 2GB of RAM. A 16MP camera can be found at the back, while a 5MP one is taking care of selfies. There's also a 3,050mAh battery to keep the lights on, as well as 16GB of on-board storage, complemented by a microSD card slot. Android 5.1.1 is powering the device.

There's still no word on the release date or the availability of the phone, though we heard it might not be a China-exclusive.
