We’ve kept a close eye on the Samsung Galaxy A8 leaks over the last couple of weeks. Samsung is clearly up to something good with this new Galaxy A variant, particularly in the design department. If all goes well, this should be the thinnest Samsung Galaxy ever, though don’t think it won’t come at a cost.

One of the most striking parts of the spec sheet we found a few days ago, was not necessarily the fact that it was barely 5.9mm thin, which is already a full millimeter thiner than the iPhone 6. The shocker was that the video we discovered next showed that this device doesn’t have a camera hump, something which would worry anyone about the quality of its 16 megapixel primary ISOCELL sensor. As it turns out, there are things to be worried, at least in paper. Sources claim that the sensor will reduce the pixel size to 1.0 µm, in order to be just 5mm thick. Just to give you an idea, this is 23% thinner than the Sony IMX240 sensor that powers the camera on the Galaxy Note 4.

Sadly, the smaller the pixel size, the more low-light photography is affected, but we’ll just have to wait until the device is launched for us to be able to test it in our review.
