Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) Details

Following the 2016 variant of the Galaxy A3, A5 and A7, the south-Korean smartphone manufacturers have introduced an upgraded version of the previously launched Galaxy A8. The Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) is powered by an Exynos SoC instead of Snapdragon and also comes with 3GB RAM which makes it different than its predecessor.
The smartphone features the similar 5.7-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display as seen on the original Galaxy A8. The display is paired with awesome viewing angles and the screen offers excellent legibility when placed under the sun. Also, there is Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection that prevents the device from any scratches. The smartphone runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box.
One important change is the inclusion of Exynos 7420 instead of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 615. The device is smooth and delivers seamless performance. There are no lag issues even while multitasking because of the presence of 3GB of RAM. One should not worry about any storage issues as the Galaxy A8 (2016) comes with 32GB internal storage which can further be expanded up to 128GB using a microSD card.
However, connectivity options do remain unaltered. Connectivity options that help you remain connected to your near and dear ones include 4G, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, GPS, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC and a microUSB 2.0 port. You can expect your device last for more than a day considering the fact it is fuelled by a Li-Ion 3,050 mAh battery. The smartphone is available in three colour variants which include gold, black and white.
Moving over to imaging, there is the similar 16-megapixel rear camera coupled with modes like optical image stabilisation, face and smile detection, autofocus, HDR, etc. To help you click images in low-light, there is an LED flash. For making video calls and capturing selfies the device is equipped with a 5-megapixel front shooter that also has the capacity to record Full HD videos.
