Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) now goes official outside Korea

Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) is seemingly spreading its wings outside its homeland, South Korea. The device which was launched back in October last year is now listed on the official websites of Samsung in the Gulf region and Taiwan. It is also speculated that the device will be accorded to more markets in the near future. Galaxy A8 (2016) features a metal body design, 3GB RAM, Exynos 7420 SoC and 16MP/8MP camera configuration.

16, Jan 2017

Samsung launched Galaxy A8 2016 edition in October last year. However, the smartphone was shown the light only in South Korea. Ever since there has been a mounting anticipation that it would also be launched shortly in other markets. In October, the device was spotted on the Indian export and import website Zauba sparking a speculation that the device would launch in the country.

Nevertheless, it seems Galaxy A8 (2016) is now looking to move out of its home turf. Recently, the handset was spotted on Samsung Gulf and Taiwan websites. The listing for the Gulf region shows that the handset will retail for $490 (Approx. Rs. 33,380). For Taiwan, the price is not yet set, but expectedly it will fall in the similar price range. In South Korea, the device is available for a price of 649,000 won (Approx. Rs. 37, 625), though.

With the availability of Galaxy A8 (2016) in Gulf and Taiwan, it is likely that it will open the floodgates for the release of the device in some other markets as well. The next market on the radar for Samsung could be Europe. However, the details in this regard are still shrouded in mystery.

Talking about the specs, the metal-clad Galaxy A8 (2016) flaunts a large 5.7-inch 1080p full HD display. Powering the device is an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor coupled with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. The smartphone packs a 16MP primary camera at the rear and an 8MP selfie camera on the front. Supplying the juice is a 3,300mAh battery which is non-removable. On the software side of things, Galaxy A8 (2016) runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. A fingerprint scanner sits pretty just below the display as well.

It is not clear if Galaxy A8 (2016) will come with certain tweaks from its original specs and features for different markets. For Gulf and Taiwan, the device, however, packs the same bells and whistles. It is currently available in three color options; Gray, Blue, and Pink. And most likely the same colors will be retained for markets outside South Korea.

Samsung has already launched the 2017 editions of Galaxy A3, A5, and A7. However, Galaxy A8 (2017) has been delayed since Galaxy A8 2016 edition is yet to go for a full-fledged release worldwide.
