  • Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ 2018 launched with Infinity display and dual front cameras

The A8 (2018) comes in two variants with 4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage, while the A8+ (2018) comes in two variants- 4GB RAM & 32GB storage and a 6GB RAM & 64GB storage option. The Midnight Black, on the other hand, is available for the original price. The front, in the case of the Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ 2018, is clean and without any physical buttons.

Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) sports a 5.6-inch (1080×2220 pixels) Full HD+ Super AMOLED display and runs on Android 7.1.1 (Nougat).

Internally, both the phones are powered by Samsung Exynos 7885 chipset, built on the 14nm manufacturing process.

Like the previous Galaxy A range of smartphones, both the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) are differentiated with only some features.

F-22s Fire Warning Flares at Russian Jets in Coalition Territory
One of the officials said a Russian Su-35 fighter jet was also involved and that the aerial encounter lasted "several minutes". USA aircraft are to remain on the east side and Russian on the west side of the river unless advance notice is given.

Battery: While the A8 2018 is backed by a 3,000mAh battery, the A8+ 2018 has a larger 3,500mAh battery inside. We don't expect wonders from these kits, as last year's A7 also had 16MP cameras with small pixel sensors and pretty mediocre snappers, but Samsung may pleasantly surprise us, as there is much wider aperture and phase-detection autofocus on the rear now, and a dual camera at the front for some pleasant portrait selfie photography.

Connectivity options are- Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C, NFC, GPS, and Glonass. The Live Focus feature lets you adjust the background blur on selfies to create bokeh effect. This is the first Samsung device to sport a dual rear camera setup. Both smartphones will be available from January 2018. 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 IP68 certified, which makes them dust and water-resistant and also they comes with Samsung's characteristic Always-on display.
