Samsung Galaxy A8 is likely to be the slimmest ever mobile phone handset marketed by the Korean tech giant but it seems for the time being the customers in UK have to remain contended with Samsung Galaxy A7, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
A recent announcement by Samsung revealed that the handset would currently be available in China and Singapore only.
Buyers in UK may not be completely disheartened though as Samsung aims to market the handset there in future but the exact date is yet to be announced.
Many buyers were looking forward to the 5.9mm thick technological marvel from Samsung eagerly. The Samsung Galaxy A8 is almost 15% less in thickness in comparison to both its predecessor Samsung Galaxy A7 and Samsung Galaxy S6. In a world dominated by jeans and jacket it would be great convenience having such slimmer phones that can easily fit into one’s pocket.
Slimness of the phone does not take away its capabilities of communicating as the engineers have been able to fit in relatively high capacity 3,050 power mAh batteries in their latest smart phone. People looking for excellent photography would be happy with the 16 megapixel camera that has been provided in the smart phone.
In an interview given to BBC, spokesman for Samsung clarified that the new handset is going to be available in China and Singapore only apart from Korea and it is not going to appear immediately in British markets.
While the overall smart phone market in China has been shrinking a bit it is on the rise in UK. But perhaps the decision of Samsung is prompted by the recent fall in their smart phone business around China and Singapore and they also want to preserve the existing UK market for their Flagship Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
