Samsung Galaxy A8 makes its way through the FCC

The Galaxy A8 (SM-A800) just moved a step closer to an official launch, as the upcoming Galaxy A smartphone has made an appearance on the FCC, barely a week after we saw it in the flesh over in China. The FCC filing doesn’t give us any useful details (except confirming that it will feature all of the standard connectivity options, including dual-band Wi-Fi and LTE), but it does complete one of the many pit stops a smartphone has to make before it can be unveiled to the consumer.

Of course, this doesn’t mean we don’t already know a lot about the Galaxy A8. As we exclusively detailed last month, the Galaxy A8 should feature a 5.7-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16-megapixel and 5-megapixel rear and front cameras, 16GB of internal storage, and a 3,050 mAh battery. The phone will also have a touch fingerprint sensor, run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, and have an extremely thin 5.9 mm metallic frame.

These specs were recently confirmed by China’s TENAA, and the leaked photos that we saw last week – coupled with the FCC listing – suggest it won’t be long before Samsung takes the wraps off the Galaxy A8.
