Samsung quite recently launched an upgraded Galaxy A8 smartphone in Japan and in the process it has made the original device more powerful. They unveiled new-generation Galaxy A series devices along with the 2016 Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7. But a completely new variant of the Galaxy A8 was not launched.
The much anticipated Galaxy A9 has not made its debut just yet either, but apparently the Galaxy A8 will come power packed. Although it has not been fully revamped, a new Galaxy A8 version for Japan has now entered the market, laced with a more powerful processor..
The original Samsung Galaxy A8 was unveiled back in August 2015 and it continues to increase its reach to new geographical regions. While that model was powered by either a Snapdragon 615 processor from Qualcomm or an in-house Exynos 5430 processor from Samsung, the new Galaxy A8 model made for Japanese market now boasts an Exynos 5433 SoC.
This is a prominent upgrade for the CPU, as the Exynos 5433 is actually more powerful than the Exynos 5430 SoC found on the original Galaxy A8. Interesting thing to note here is that the CPU model numbers looks very close, but the two processors actually have many differences.
