Samsung has proposed to strengthen its position in the Chinese market with premium mid-range terminals especially focused on that country. We’ve been hearing about a device like the Galaxy a8 Star, a terminal that we’ve already seen the FCC with the technical name of SM-G885F / DS and that has now again made an appearance by the Chinese certifying body TENAA.
The truth is that everything related to this device is somewhat convoluted, since previously we said that the letter F of the model that had been leaked pointed to an international version, whereas now we have a device with the technical name of SM-G8858, which points to a variant of the previous model.
This is what TENAA tells us about the Galaxy A8 Star
Well the truth is that this time TENAA has been quite scant in details, since it has only informed us that the SM-G8858 (supposed Galaxy A8 Star) would be compatible with LTE networks, it would have support for dual-SIM in standby and its system operative would be Android (what a surprise).
If we stick to the information handled so far, the Galaxy A8 Star should reach the market with an Infinity screen. 6.3 inches , with resolution Full-HD Plus and panoramic format 18.5: 9.
The process section would be in charge of a SoC Exynos 7 Octa 7885 @ 2.2 Ghz (also used in the Galaxy A8 Y A8 Plus ), an amount of RAM between 4GB or 6GB , and a storage of 64 GB Expandable via Micro-SD Card.
For its part, the photographic system would integrate double camera back with resolutions of 24 Mpx and 16 Mpx, although the front sensor would be unique and with a resolution of 8 Mpx.
Other known aspects of the possible Galaxy A8 Star would be its battery of 3700 mAh and its support for Bluetooth, FM Radio and NFC
According to the source consulted, this SM-G8858 it could be a model destined exclusively for the Chinese market and intended to be sold only under one operator, but as we said, the appearance of the version SM-G885F / DS in the FCC, it suggests that there will also be an international version of this device.
For now we do not have more information regarding the launch date or the price that this device can handle (we calculate between 300 and 400 euros), but we will inform you of new details as soon as possible.
