The Samsung Galaxy A8 Is the Brand's Thinnest Phone Yet


Samsung has launched its slimmest smartphone ever, the Galaxy A8. Available only in China for now, the device sports an all-metal body that measures just 5.9mm thin and weighs a paltry 151 grams (5.3 oz). While the specs aren't nearly as impressive as the handheld's slim dimensions, they're more than adequate for the everyday user: underneath the 5.7-inch 1080p OLED display is a 8-core Snapdragon 615 chip and 2GB of RAM. Additional features include 16-megapixel rear camera and a 3,050mAh battery, larger than the one found on the Galaxy S6. Pricing is rumored to start at 3,499 yuan ($560).
