Facts about the Ultra-slim Smartphone

Samsung has announced arguably its most beautiful phone ever, the Samsung Galaxy A8.


Samsung has announced a new phone, and its arguably the most beautiful phone from the tech giants. Here are a few facts about the Samsung Galaxy A8:

Not only is the A8 a very beautiful phone, it Samsung's thinnest till date:

The 5.7-inch device has a metal, 0.23-inch-thick body. The front is almost all screen with extremely thin side bezels, and it's also quite light at 0.3 pounds. If this is the design direction for Samsung's future smartphones, then we can only but look forward to the Galaxy Note 5.

Its not as awesome as the flagship S6:

The Galaxy A8's specifications are considerably weaker than the company's most powerful device, the Galaxy S6: It sports an 8-core, Snapdragon 615 chip, 2GB of RAM, a 1080p display and a 16-megapixel rear camera (coupled with a 5-megapixel selfie cam). However, the fingerprint sensor and a 3,050mAh battery bring it close to flagship territory.

Its quite pricy:

When Engadget did a little digging, they revealed that the phone would go for about $516, that's slightly over N100,000.

The bad news is:

Its going to be launched in China and will not be available anywhere else, for now at least.
