In 2015 this new model works out of the box running the Android operating system 5.1 Lollipop.

Samsung Galaxy A8 Duos is available in two versions with different processors: the first — 8-core Snapdragon 615, and the second — 8-core Exynos 5430 Octa. The amount of RAM in it is 2 GB.

But, more importantly, it′s the amount of built-in memory for storing your information (photo, video, music, etc.). Here you will receive 32 GB. You can still do this — buy a smartphone with a minimum amount of memory to save a bit, and buy a memory card microSD up to 256 GB, because in this model there is a slot for memory cards.
