Samsung Galaxy A8 2016 Surfaces on GFXBench
The current Samsung Galaxy A8 is the slickest and sexiest smartphone in the company’s portfolio, boasting an incredibly thin silhouette, being just 5.9 millimeters thick. Â Today’s piece of intel is that the Korean tech giant is preparing a sequel (I can hear the fanboys cheering), as the 2016 version of theÂ Samsung Galaxy A8 just surfaced on GFXBench.
So, the A8 was bench-marked today and of course, we’re here to hit you with the news about the upcoming A8 “Part Deux”. According to the leaked papers, the newÂ Samsung Galaxy A8 will feature a conservative 5.1 inches wide display with full HD/1080p resolution, which is not bad considering the relatively low (expected) price tag. Also, we know quite a bit about the smartphone’s hardware. Hang on to your hats and keep reading: under the hood, theÂ Galaxy A8 will come with Samsung’s in-house made Exynos 7420 system on chip, which is last year’s state of the art architecture, i.e. it was used on the company’s flagships.
But remember, the Galaxy A8 is an affordable mid ranged droid, meaning that you’ll only pay half price when compared to an S6/S6 edge, so the good news keeps on coming, right? The gift that keeps on giving and the whole palaver. Now, talking about the excellentÂ Exynos 7420 chipset, what we’re dealing with here is an octa core (eight cores) architecture with the CPUs clocked at 2.1 GHz and working together with aÂ Mali-T760 MP8 GPU and a generous 3 gigabytes of RAM.
The main camera is a 16 megapixels variety while the secondary snapper on the front has a resolution of 5 megapixels. The internal memory capacity is a conservative 32 gigabytes, more than enough in this writer’s opinion but unfortunately, we don’t know much about the upcomingÂ Galaxy A8’s thickness. Also, the smartphone recently appeared on Zauba, the Indian import/export website and it was listed using its model identification numberÂ SM-A810F but they got it wrong in terms of screen real estate (5.7 inches).
