Samsung's thinnest phone yet is a slim 5.9mm (0.2 inches) and just 151 grams (5.3 ounces).

That rear-mounted 16-megapixel camera is backed up by a 5-megapixel wide-angle shooter on the front.

If 16GB of storage sounds too little, you'll be happy to hear that the A8 can reportedly handle up to 128GB on a MicroSD card.
