Ultra-thin Samsung Galaxy A8 leaks online

Any skinnier and it'd just be a screen

Samsung is reportedly going to take its smartphones to new depths of skinniness, if leaked images of the Galaxy A8 are accurate. 

The new smartphone will come in at 5.9mm thick which, while it may seem physics-defyingly thin, actually doesn’t come close to the 4.85mm-thick Oppo R5.

However, unlike the R5, the Samsung will come with a full-size 3.5mm headphone jack, which is nothing short of astounding.

The images were picked up by French tech site Nowhereelse.fr, which has been pretty reliable for leaks in the past. Specs are said to include a full HD 5.7in Super AMOLED screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, 16MP rear- and 5MP front-facing cameras and a 3050mAh battery. 

While all this may get you excited, there’s no word on price or availability. We’ll bring you the latest news as and when we get it.
