Samsung's new A8 and A8 Plus devices feature a dual selfie camera

Share

Internal storage options are 32GB and 64GB, which is expandable via microSD card. The A8 comes with 4GB of RAM, while the A8 Plus comes with both 4GB or 6GB of RAM. Both the phones have a 1080p+ Super AMOLED screen with an unusual aspect ratio of 18.5:9.

The design sounds a lot like the Samsung Galaxy S8's, with IP68 dust and water resistance, a metal frame and curved glass on the back, and there should be a decent amount of power, as the Galaxy A8 (2018) has an octa-core chipset with two cores clocked at 2.2GHz and six running at 1.6GHz, plus 4GB of RAM. The selfie camera on the front is now 16MP + 8MP with f/1.9 aperture on both the sensors. Both these devices will be first from Samsung to feature dual front cameras.

It's interesting to note that the dual camera is placed at the front rather than the back like the Galaxy Note 8.

As expected, the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) adopt the Infinity Display design of the S-series.

However, Rohan Silva, a tech entrepreneur and former adviser to David Cameron, says the firm has made competitors up their game. He said Uber will "keep talking with EU governments to enable affordable transportation services for millions more Europeans".

- 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. Digital stabilization was added for steadier videos while the Hyperlapse mode will help condense things to just the gist.

The devices come in black, gray, gold, and blue. Because of those connections, the case maker is able to design and produce cases early for unreleased smartphones, therefore ensuring that cases are available as soon as these new phones launch. The Live Focus feature lets you chose whether the background is in focus or blurred to a soft bokeh.

The Galaxy A8 has a 3000 mAh battery on board, while the bigger phone has a 3500 mAh battery. They will also support wired fast charging and wireless charging. The body has an IP68 water and dust protection rating, for genuine feelings of serenity, and it's the initial A-Series Samsung phone that is ideal with the Gear VR virtual reality headset.
