Samsung Galaxy A8 to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow update soon



Samsung Galaxy A8 - Featured

Samsung had launched the Galaxy A8 in August 2015 in India at a price of Rs. 32,500. With an all metal body and just 5.9mm thickness, it is the one of the best looking mid-range devices at that time. It came with Android 5.1 Lollipop based TouchWiz UI out-of-the-box. Though the company has rolled out the Marshamallow update for most the of the high-end devices launched in 2015, somehow the company has made the Galaxy A8 users still waiting for the update.

Though there is no word about the roll-out from the company, the recent Wi-Fi certification shows the dual SIM variant with the model number SM-A800F running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. With this listing we expect Samsung to start rolling-out the update in the next few days. It comes wiith two nano SIM slots where one slot can accept the MicroSD card for storage expansion. Recently the company also launched the Galaxy A9 as the successor for the Galaxy A8, but it is still available only in China.

While in China, the same device was launched with Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor. There is a 16MP primary camera with LED flash and OIS, and a 5MP selfie shooter on the front. It is backed by a 3,050mAh battery that might give a single day of usage.
