Samsung introduces new version of Galaxy A8(2018), Galaxy A8+(2018)

Samsung introduces new version of Galaxy A8(2018), Galaxy A8+(2018)

The coolest feature is the dual front cameras, which feature f 1.9 lenses and portrait mode. There's also a Live Focus feature which lets you adjust bokeh effect.

With both the Galaxy A8 and the Galaxy S8 offering an 18.5:9 display, there's a lot in common when it comes to presenting your content.

Samsung says the new phones will become available in early January, so don't forget to tune in for CES 2018 to find out more details. As for the main camera, you're getting a 16MP main camera with a wide f/1.7 aperture.

Samsung introduces new version of Galaxy A8(2018), Galaxy A8+(2018)

Like the previous Galaxy A range of smartphones, both the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) are differentiated with only some features. There's no optical image stabilisation on offer, but Samsung promises its digital stabilisation will help the Galaxy A8 snap decent low light photos.

As far as the camera department is concerned, both the Galaxy A8 and A8+ come with the same set up. The Infinity Display on the front is probably the best feature of the phone, but it comes with a trade off - an awkwardly positioned rear fingerprint sensor. The device is also layered with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection and is paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage capacity expandable up to 256GB via MicroSD card. As for the processor, you get an octa-core CPU that is broken down into a dual-core 2.20GHz high-performing core and a hexa-core setup running at a speed of 1.60GHz. The A8 is fuelled by a 3000mAh battery whereas the bigger A8+ is powered by the 3500mAh battery, both supporting fast charging via their USB Type-C ports. Both handsets sport water and dust resistant body with IP68 ratings. Furthermore, the company will also implement a new fingerprint scanner unit right on the back side, below the camera. This is slightly disappointing as the other Samsung handsets are now getting Android 8.0 Oreo update.

Samsung will offer both the phones in four colours: black, orchid grey, gold and blue. Samsung said this is to make the Galaxy A series share the same system as its premium products.
