The Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8+ 2018 variants have been the subject of several leaks and rumours lately. While we recently saw live images of the Galaxy A8 (2018), the Galaxy A8+ (2018) was seen in a hands-on video. Today, Samsung has officially announced both smartphones, and they will be made available soon.
Samsung is bringing premium features from the S-series to the mid-range with these devices. They feature 18:5:9 Super AMOLED displays and glass sandwich designs. The screens on both new smartphones offer full HD+ resolution, but the Galaxy A8 (2018) comes with a 5.6-inch display while the Galaxy A8+ (2018) features a 6-inch screen. The devices also get IP68 certification for protection against water and dust. The new smartphones come powered by octa-core processors mated to 4GB of RAM, and the A8+ (2018) also gets an additional 6GB RAM variant. Samsung is offering the phones in 32GB and 64GB storage options. Moreover, like the upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9+, Samsung has moved the fingerprint scanners below the rear camera modules on these handsets.
Coming to the cameras, the USP of these smartphones is the dual 16-megapixel + 8-megapixel f/1.9 camera setup on the front, which is a first for the South Korean handset maker. Samsung has also equipped the camera with a Live Focus feature, which allows users to adjust focus after taking a picture as well. The rear cameras on these phones are 16-megapixel f/1.7 units, boasting features like video digital image stabilisation and hyperlapse. Out of the box, both smartphones run Android 7.1.1 Nougat and also feature the proprietary Samsung Pay. The Galaxy A8 (2018) gets a 3,000mAh battery, while the Galaxy A8+ (2018) features a 3,500mAh pack.
Samsung is offering both smartphones in four hues – black, orchid grey, gold and blue. The company hasn’t announced the pricing of the devices yet, but has mentioned that they will be available in early January 2018.
