Samsung Galaxy A8 Pre-order Starts Tuesday in Korea

Samsung made its thinnest smartphone yet, but you can't have it as it is only available in South Korea and China.

Samsung unveiled the Samsung Galaxy A8 a couple days ago. The Galaxy A8 looks similar to the Galaxy S6 in its curvature and frame, but the glass back has been replaced by the metal frame which is the signature look of the “A” series.

The A8 is only 5.9mm thin and has a 5.7-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display. The Galaxy S8 is a "fat phone" compared to the A8 with 6.8mm. Features include a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC, with one group of Cortex-A53 centers working at 1.0 GHz and another ticking at 1.5 GHz.

The RAM size is 2GB, installed memory can be either 16GB or 32GB and there is additionally a microSD card slot. A 16MP camera like in the S8 rounds out the features. The device is powered by a 3,050 mAh battery and Samsung promises 304 hours of standby time.

South Korean Yonhap News reports that Samsung will start taking pre-orders for the Galaxy A8 starting tomorrow. The price tag of the model is 649,000 won (US$564), and it will come in white and gold.

The A8 is sold exclusively through SK Telecom.

Samsung has plans to bring the Galaxy A8 to China, but no plans have been finalized for other markets.
