[EXCLUSIVE] Samsung Galaxy A8 is coming to Malaysia soon, retailing at RM1,888 !


Samsung Galaxy A8 is coming to Malaysia soon !

We have reported earlier that Samsung latest mid range smartphone Galaxy A8 will be launching soon. And we have just received the latest information from our source that Samsung Galaxy A8 had just been certified by SIRIM Malaysia and it will be launching in our market soon with a suggested retail price of RM1,888!


Let’s take a look at Samsung Galaxy A8’s specifications here:

  • 5.7 inch 1080p  Super AMOLED display
  • Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor
  • 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage (expandable with micro-SD card)
  • 16MP ISOCELL rear camera+5MP front camera
  • Body dimension: 158 x 76.77 x 5.94 mm
  • 3,050 mAh capacity battery
  • Fingerprint scanner
  • Running Android 5.1 Lollipop with TouchWiz UI


By setting the retail price of the Galaxy A8 at about RM1,800, we suggest Samsung is making a good call on its pricing strategy as it doesn’t affect the high end Galaxy S and Note series while giving consumers a taste of some premium features such as fingerprint scanner and 16MP ISOCELL camera seen on the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

In the meantime, Samsung Galaxy J7 and Tab S2 were also been approved by our SIRIM Malaysia. That means we shall be seeing more new Samsung devices available in our local market in the coming months.
