Following a successful launch in South Korea, Samsung has today released its thinnest smartphone ever, the Galaxy A8, in India. The device is available to purchase from the company’s online portal for INR 32,500 ($511) in black, gold or white colorways.
For those unaware, the Galaxy A8 pack 5.7-inch Full HD display, an Exynos 5430 octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage and a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera.
As this device is targeted at the Asian market, it does, of course, feature a Dual-SIM slot. However, in order to save space and reduce thickness of the unit, Samsung has included a hybrid slot, which means that it can either be used for a secondary SIM card or a microSD. You can’t have both.
The Galaxy A8 is compatible with all 4G LTE networks in India (FDD-LTE Band 3 1800 MHz and TDD-LTE Band 40 2300 MHz) and Samsung has teamed up with operator Airtel to offer exclusive data packages to customers who pick up the device.
