Samsung Galaxy A8

This is Samsung’s most anorexic smartphone yet

After a number of leaks, Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy A8….in China. Just like the leaks said, the Galaxy A8 is Samsung’s thinnest phone to date, at a mere 5.9mm thick. The Galaxy A8 is part of Samsung’s metal A series of phones and joins the A3, A5 and A7. The A8 slots right above the Galaxy A7, as it brings a bigger 5.7-inch full HD Super AMOLED display to the table.
