Galaxy A8 specs revealed in leaked benchmark

Samsung’s Galaxy A lineup already includes several metal smartphones. Now we’re getting a look at the latest addition thanks to a leaked benchmark for the rumored Galaxy A8.

The upcoming device actually seems pretty similar to the current Galaxy A7. It offers the same 5.5-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The primary shooter has been boosted to 15 megapixels (up from 13), and this model runs Android 5.1 Lollipop.

Rumor has it the Galaxy A8 may also launch with a fingerprint reader, bringing the biometric scanner to a mid-range Samsung device for the first time. Otherwise, the design will likely be pretty close to the rest of the Galaxy A series, though it’s possible the company could take some inspiration from the Galaxy S6.

There’s still no word on when the Galaxy A8 will launch, though Samsung is allegedly also prepping A6 and A9 handsets as well. It’s unlikely these mid-range models will get the showy unveiling reserved for the company’s flagship phones. Still, we’ll be on the lookout for an official announcement or any more news surrounding the company’s rumored trio of metal smartphones.
