Samsung would soon be offering what has been dubbed as the "thinnest smartphone" the world has ever seen, and many are already drooling for more information on the device's specs and features.

A highly-anticipated smartphone from Samsung called the Galaxy A8 has received its fair share of rumors for the past few days particularly its new and enhanced rear snapper.

According to GSM Arena, this 5.7-inch screened device would reportedly be just 5.9 mm thick, about 23 percent thinner because of its version of the Sony IMX240 snapper used in the Korean giant's Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge.

This smartphone is receiving so much attention right now especially after a video of a live hands-on footage shows how amazing its features are. Here is a quick look at this new phone.

Nowadays, smartphone users are buying these devices for only a couple of reasons: camera, communication, battery-life, multi-tasking capabilities and Internet connectivity.

Here are a couple of things you should watch for if you are intending to purchase your very own Samsung Galaxy A8.

Camera and Imaging

According to Phone Arena, the Samsung Galaxy A8 would be sporting an ISOCELL LSI3P3 chip manufactured by Samsung which would be thinner than the Sony IMX240 sensor used in S6 and S6 Edge.

On a separate report from the website, its camera sensors were described to be better because it would have an RWB or red, white, blue color pattern.

This is explained to provide "better color fidelity" for the photos produced by the phone's 16MP rear camera which should be a great match with its 1080p Super-AMOLED screen that has a 386ppi pixel density.


Meanwhile, Phone Arena also got word that the Korean electronics company is working on high-power and "denser" batteries which most probably is the solution to the ever-present issue of short battery-life since the dawn of smartphones.

According to the report, Samsung phone users would soon be experiencing the improvement delivered by batteries with 700Wh/l density.

This means that the user would be able to maximize the energy stored in the power-source without needing to create a physical battery unit with higher volume.

Phone Arena also revealed that the tech firm would continue to improve this, noting that the 700Wh/l density should increase to 780Wh/l by 2017.

And it does not end there. The voltage, which is directly proportional to the battery life, would also be increased to 4.40V by the next couple of months and should escalate higher to as much as 4.5V by 2017.

Operation System

To match these improvements, the Samsung Galaxy A8 would also have better specs "under the hood."

This refers specifically to its Adreno 405 GPU, Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset, 16GB of internal storage memory and 2 GB of random access memory.

It would be run by the Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system, according to Geeky-Gadgets.com, which would be "pre-installed out of the box."

Meanwhile, a source told Phone Arena that the Galaxy A8's OS would be matched with a newer TouchWiz version of the Android 5.1.1.
