Samsung Galaxy A8 Star

Description

The Samsung Galaxy A8 Star looks much like a regular Samsung device from the front, with its Super AMOLED Infinity display and reduced bezels above and below. However, move on to the rear and it’s a completely different story. Starting off with the new vertical dual-camera module, that has been placed in the top corner of the device, with a LED flash positioned just below. Because of this, the fingerprint scanner is riding solo in the center of the panel. In regards to what Samsung offers on the inside, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 is the most prominent feature, coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Also, battery life is set to be pretty impressive thanks to a large 3,700mAh battery.

This device is also known as Samsung SM-G885F
