If you follow leaks around the Internet, you might know about @Onleaks. The popular leakster has shared a number of renders of the upcoming Galaxy A8 (2016) on his Twitter account. These rendered images show a detailed look at the design of the device from all possible angles. According to GFXBench, the smartphone will pack in a 5.1-inh display, which will be a lot smaller than the 5.7-inch display found on the 2015 variant. If we look at the renders closely, the phone might have a premium finish made up of aluminium and glass. On the front, there is a Samsung branding along with the earpiece and usual set of proximity and ambient light sensors. On the left side, we get separate volume rockers and a SIM card slot. A physical home button is present below the display along with two capacitive touch buttons on either sides. The home button will possibly have the fingerprint sensor embedded on it. At the bottom, we have the USB port along with a 3.5 mm audio jack and two antenna cut outs as well. The back is made up of glass with a glossy finish (fingerprint magnet) with Samsung branding at the centre.

If we go by the previous reports, the Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) will rock a 16 megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 5 megapixel selfie camera. On the right side, we get the power (lock / unlock) button. On top of that, there is a small groove and that could be a speaker. In terms of power, the new Galaxy A8 will supposedly be powered by an octa-core Exynos 7420 chipset clocked at 2.1 GHz along with Mali-T760 MP8 GPU. It will also pack in 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of onboard internal storage. There is no mention of the battery capacity though.
