The leaked specs reveal that this handset is wider and taller than the Galaxy Note7, while its specs include the Exynos 7420 chip, 3 GB RAM, and 32 GB of expandable internal storage.

Last year in July, Samsung unleashed the Galaxy A8 handset that can still be found on the market. However, benchmark results of its successor surfaced about a month ago. Now, some renders of the Galaxy A8 (2016) also made it online, but after the 5.7-inch phablet also received its Bluetooth certification and checked in at FCC. These renders suggest a device made of glass with a metal frame.

According to OnLeaks, the source of the images mentioned above, this handset's dimensions make it wider and taller than the Galaxy Note7 - 6.16X3.05X0.29 inches. The specs revealed so far include a 5.7-inch full HD display, a 2.1 GHz Exynos 7420 Octa processor, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, a 5 MP front camera, and a 16 MP main image shooter on the back. This phablet also includes a fingerprint reader and is expected to hit the market loaded with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

Unfortunately, there is no official confirmation of this device yet, but since it surfaced at FCC already, it should be announced soon.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
