The Galaxy A8 comes with 4GB RAM as well as 32GB and 64GB storage variants.
Like the previous Galaxy A range of smartphones, both the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) are differentiated with only some features. As for the main camera, you're getting a 16MP main camera with a wide f/1.7 aperture. Galaxy A8 will feature 5.6-inch Full HD AMOLED display while Galaxy A8 Plus comes with 6-inch Full HD AMOLED display with a resolution of 2220x1080 pixels. The A8 (2018) has a 3000mAh battery, whereas the A8+ (2018) has a 3500mAh battery. Guess what, Samsung's famous Live Focus camera mode is coming to both the phones.
The smartphone will be available from early January in South Korea in four exciting colours including Black, Orchid Grey, Gold and Blue colour options. There is no word on the pricing and their availability in countries like India. Samsung combines a 16-megapixel shooter with an 8-megapixel one, letting you shoot bokeh-style photos front-on. The device is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm 835 processor and runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system. Released in July a year ago, both the phones have some striking features.
Arkansas hiring SMU's Chad Morris as head coach, report says
Under Morris' fast-paced, no-huddle spread attack, Clemson shattered 127 offensive records (89 individual; 38 team) from 2010-14. Morris and Malzahn will have their first meeting as fellow SEC head coaches on September 22 next season on the Plains in Auburn.
The Galaxy A8 (2018) weighs 172grams, and the A8+ (2018) has a weight of 191grams. The front, in the case of the Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ 2018, is clean and without any physical buttons. Both models support fast charging via USB Type-C. Both handsets are IP68 rated water and dust resistance.
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. Both the phones come equipped with an Infinity screen, which means, that much like Samsung's Galaxy S8/Galaxy S8+, the Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ 2018 also come with an edge-to-edge bezel-less display.
- The A8 and A8 2018 are also MST-enabled which makes them Samsung Pay-ready out-of-the-box.
