Samsung Galaxy A8 may flaunt fingerprint sensor

While Samsung has started using the fingerprint scanner on all its flagship devices, the company now plans on using the sensor for its upcoming A series smartphones.


According to sources, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A8 smartphone would flaunt a sensitive touch-based fingerprint sensor just like that on the Galaxy S6. Besides that we expect the device to pack in a 5.7 inch full HD display with the octa core Snapdragon 615 processor. Also expected is a 16 MP rear facing camera and a 5 MP front facing camera.

Should the rumours be true, the Samsung Galaxy A8 would be the premium offering in the A series. Further the company seems to be closing in on the difference between the Galaxy Note 4 and the A series smartphone. While initially rumours claimed that the device would be exclusive to China only, reports now suggest rollout in Asian and European countries.
