The Korean company surprised everyone when it decided to change the name of the A5 and A7 models to the A8 and A8 Plus, but everyone has already reconciled and got used to the new name, now many are waiting for the new model – the Galaxy A8 2019. In this article we will tell you what to expect from the new model, and when we expect it. In this article we collected all the information that we managed to get. But I want to warn you that the manufacturer has not yet confirmed these data, it is possible that something else will change. Let’s look at the new model.
According to experts, there will not be many changes in appearance, and the main ones will be on the back of the case, but more on this later. We got the information that the 2019 model will be equipped with the same 5.6-inch display, it’s an AMOLED panel with a resolution of 2220 x 1080 pixels, with their density at 441 ppi. This is an excellent display and there is no sense to replace it, especially since any change affects the price of the device. Inside the smartphone, we will see more new components.
Samsung A8 2019 will be equipped with a new 8-core Exynos processor, which was developed specifically for middle-class smartphones, unfortunately, little is known about it, except that it will consist of the Cortex-A73 and Cortex-A53 cores. This processor will work together with 4 or 6 GB of RAM, and the user data will be allocated 32 or 64 GB of internal memory. The user will also be able to use the slot for microSD cards.
In the beginning of the article, I already said that we will see changes on the back of the device. What are these changes? The smartphone should receive a dual main camera. Rumors say that this will be the same duo that is used on the front, that is, the main lens with a resolution of 16 megapixels and an additional 8 megapixel. We will see a double camera, but I doubt that this will be just such a blow.
What else can the Samsung Galaxy A8 2019 boast?
The new phone will also receive one of the very new communication modules, we list them in the list below. Users should also be pleased with the new feature of unlocking the smartphone with the help of a person, but the fingerprint scanner will also be in its place. The official premiere of Galaxy A8 2019 will take place in early January 2019 at CES 2019, but the smartphone itself is likely to be seen in 2018, similar to its predecessor. The price of the smartphone will be around 550-600 dollars. Below you will see the full list of characteristics that was compiled from the received information leaks and rumors.
