Leaked specs have painted a respectable picture of the upcoming Galaxy A8, which is said to feature a 5.7-inch full HD display, an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM, microSD memory expansion, a 16-megapixel camera and a 3,050 mAh battery.

What’s most impressive about this phone though — especially considering the monster battery — is how thin it is. According to rumors, the phone measures just 5.9mm thick. To put that in perspective, Apple’s iPhone 6 measures 6.9mm thick.

If it sounds impressive, that’s because it is. And now, any remaining mystery is gone thanks to a leaked hands-on Galaxy A8 video dug up on Chinese gadget site Tenaa by Nowhereelse.
