The newly launched smartphones will arrive in two storage options, 4GB with 32GB internal storage and 6GB with 64GB internal storage.
Like the Galaxy S8, the new A8 series will have an infinity display with an 18.5:9 display ratio.
Rear camera: Both the phones have a 16-megapixel rear sensor with f/1.7 aperture, phase detection autofocus, LED flash and 1080p video recording. The A8 has a 5.6-inch Super AMOLED screen and A8+ will come with 6-inch Super AMOLED screen. Internal memory strikes above the midrange crowd with up to 64GB models, while the battery packs are 3000mAh and 3500mAh, respectively. They will be available in January in black, orchid grey, gold and blue for about EUR499 and EUR599, respectively, and the fact that the pricing is given in European currency should hint at you that we might never see these two released officially on a USA carrier.
- Successors to the A5 and A7 2017, the A8 and A8+ 2018 have been designed from grounds up to offer a flagship Galaxy S8-kind of experience at a not so flagship Galaxy S8-kind of pricing.More news: Will County Health Department: 2017-2018 flu season
Samsung has also slapped a dual-front camera on the device (16MP+8MP f/1.9), capable of portrait selfies and adjustable depth of field effects. Both the devices are charged via USB Type-C port. The device is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm 835 processor and runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system. Both the phones have an all-glass and metal body. Let's take a close look at the specifications of the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018).
- The A8 and A8+ 2018 borrow one of the biggest highlights of the S8. Both the devices will support Samsung Galaxy VR and are also IP68 certified water and dust resistant.
Samsung's adoption of the dual front camera is meant to set the phone apart from other mid-end handsets, and it is unlikely be to be adopted in the upcoming flagship phone Galaxy S9, according to an industry insider.
- The A8 and A8 2018 are also MST-enabled which makes them Samsung Pay-ready out-of-the-box.
