Samsung Galaxy A8 Hands On Video - YouTube 2015-06-30 08-57-41

Samsung has yet to officially announce the much-rumored Galaxy A8, but now we know basically anything we might need to know about it (via Nowhereelse). The phone, which is apparently the thinnest that Samsung has ever made, can be seen from every angle in a recently-leaked hands-on video that managed to slip of the hands of Chinese telecom regulator TENAA…

According to this video, details we’ve heard previously, and a spec sheet that leaked out thanks to Steve Hemmerstoffer, the phone is a super-thin mid-range offering much like Samsung’s previous Galaxy A7. The phone sports a metal build, a 5.7-inch 1080 x 1920 resolution display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC, 16 GB of expandable storage, 2 GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel main shooter, and a decently-sized 3,050 mAh battery. In terms of software, the phone appears to be running Android 5.1 Lollipop.

It’s not clear at the moment whether the phone will launch to an international audience, but it seems certain that it’s coming at least to China. Check out the below video for more:
