Galaxy A8 (2016) Leaked in Performance Test, Specs Revealed

It seems like Samsung wants to renovate the whole of its A-series. The Galaxy A3 and A5 (2016 versions) along with the Galaxy A7 (2016) are getting a major overhaul, while Galaxy A9 (2016) was spotted on GeekBench recently. We thought that that was the end to the 2016 Edition of A-series. But it looks like there’s no stopping for the Galaxy A-phones, as the Galaxy A8 (2016) has been spotted at FCC’s database and certifications tests.

The new model of the Galaxy A8 carries the FCC ID of A3LSCV32, while the current version of the Galaxy A8 gets the denotation A3LSMA800S. According to the EUT (Equipment under Testing) section of the database, the new model shares the circuit board and casing with the older model. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi antenna are identical. Dimensions of the Galaxy A8 (2016) are 157.9mm x 76.9 mm, which is more or less the same as the current A8. The battery also remains the same at 3,050mAh, but the newer phone gets Android 5.1.1 Lollipop pre-installed.

The new 2016 Edition of the Galaxy A8 had visited GFXBench last week. Some revealed specs include the Exynos 7 Octa, ARM Mali-T760 GPU, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal memory, and a 5.2-inch FullHD screen. The new A8 has also passed the Zauba database and carries a price equivalent of $356, which is cheaper than the current model.
Looking at the recent developments and leaks, the all-new Galaxy A-series is not far from announcement and can be expected before the end of 2015.
