The Samsung Galaxy A8 has been rumored for a while, but only now has the company made it official. This mid-range phone has a distinctly Galaxy S6 sort of look, but it's even thinner. Too bad it's only going on sale in China.
Starting with the Galaxy S5, Samsung has been building fingerprint readers into the home buttons of its flagship devices.
