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

  • Galaxy A8 (2018), A8+ (2018) are now official

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.

Processor: Both the Galaxy A8 and the Galaxy A8+ 2018are powered by Samsung's in-house Exynos 7885 processor. Samsung's new Galaxy S flagship phones are the next big launch coming down the pipeline, with an unveiling expected in late February ahead of a March release. The India pricing and release date has not been announced. Samsung says users can switch between the two cameras depending on the type of selfie you want - from close-ups, to portrait shots with a clear, crisp background.

On the back, the Galaxy A8 2018 series continues with a single camera, and this one is 16MP with f/1.7 aperture.

An anonymous Weibo user in China (yeah, we know, don't shoot the messenger) has posted an alleged rear cover from the Galaxy S9 (below via BGR).

Meanwhile, there is a 16MP F1.7 rear camera optimized for low-light conditions with video digital image stabilization (VDis) technology that allows for time-lapse videos.

As per the leaks, the 2018 Galaxy A8 devices will be launched during the CES 2018.

The Galaxy A8 Plus has a 3,500mAh battery compared with the 3,000mAh cell inside the A8, and both accompany fast charging. They both have Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) and Near Field Communication (NFC) on board as well.

It shows a new position for the LED flash heart-rate sensor and a longer opening for the camera hardware, but no space for the fingerprint scanner.

Samsung's Galaxy S8 handsets are undoubtedly a high water mark for smartphone design and current indications are that the Korean giant will let it ride for another year. The processor and RAM/Storage combination is the same.

Battery: While the A8 2018 is backed by a 3,000mAh battery, the A8+ 2018 has a larger 3,500mAh battery inside. The two phones sport identical rear and front cameras.
