Samsung unveils Galaxy A8 (2018), A8+(2018) with dual front camera

Samsung's Galaxy A series is usually next in line after the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series in terms of features and pricing, and it is not surprising to see the Infinity Display being extended to the Galaxy A8 (2018) smartphones.

As per the leaks, the 2018 Galaxy A8 devices will be launched during the CES 2018. Though the naming scheme is different, these devices are the successors to the existing Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A7 (2017) models. However, there are claims that these devices will be available for sale in early January 2018. The company said, "The Dual Front Camera is made up of two separate cameras so you can switch between the two to take the type of selfie you want - from close-ups with the background to portrait shots with a clear and crisp background".

Like the previous Galaxy A range of smartphones, both the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) are differentiated with only some features. You will be able to grab either phone in black, gold, orchid grey or blue color variants. Well, the new Samsung Galaxy A8 2018 family is taking this to the next level with the dual selfie camera and even better main shooter, essentially making this series a camera-centric midrange family. For the photography needs, Samsung has packed dual front camera on the phones with 16MP and 8MP sensors. While the Galaxy A8 has a 5.6-inch FHD+ display, the Galaxy A8+ has a larger 6-inch display with the same FHD+ resolution. The phones come with the Exynos 7885 processor, 4-6GB RAM, and 32-64GB of internal storage. Both the phones have Near Field Communication (NFC) and Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST). The A8 (2018) has a 3000mAh battery, whereas the A8+ (2018) has a 3500mAh battery. Like their predecessors, these two also have IP68 certified designs for dust and water resistance. The images of the front glass reveal the size of the bezels and the camera and sensor cutouts.

Samsung also changed the fingerprint placement in these phones, which is now located below the rear camera sensor.
