The new Galaxy A8 is now official, and Samsung has chosen to launch it in South Korea via SK Telecom. The new phablet is similar to last year's Galaxy A8, but Samsung claims it is a "full-metal" handset and, just as expected, some internals have been upgraded.

Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) is powered by the octa-core Exynos 7420 Octa SoC, the same chip that can be found inside the Galaxy S6 devices. It also has 3 GB of memory, a front-facing camera with 8 MP, while the main image shooter offers 16 MP. The screen size and resolution are the same as those of last year's Galaxy A8, but the new version also gets Samsung’s Always On Display feature. Samsung Pay support is also present.

This phablet does not come cheap, SK Telecom having it up for pre-order for no less than ₩ 649,000 - roughly $590 USD. As soon as we find anything about the international launch of this handset, we will get back to it, so stay tuned.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
