The Samsung Galaxy A8 Star features 6.28-inch FHD+ (1080×2220 pixels) Super AMOLED Infinity display. It is powered with Octa Core Snapdragon 660 14nm processor (Quad 2.2GHz Kryo 260 + Quad 1.8GHz Kryo 260 CPUs) with Adreno 512 GPU. The device has 6GB RAM, 64GB internal storage and an expandable memory up to 256GB with microSD.
A photo was posted on Samsung’s landing page in Hong Kong where the South Korean company shared camera samples of its Galaxy A8 Star smartphone. The photo finds itself used in the device’s Live Focus feature where users can adjust the bokeh effect or the background blur to a value they choose.
The Galaxy A8 Star comes with a Snapdragon 660 chip which in itself is a moderately powered and battery efficient chip but will that be able to hold off the Snapdragon 845 that’s inscribed on its competitors? Is Samsung even doing justice to the mid-range phone segment? Let’s talk about that.
