Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8 Plus (2018), the two new mid-range flagship phones featuring the Infinity Display with 18:9 aspect ratio and dual front cameras, are now official. 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.
Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8 Plus (2018) have officially been announced in the South Korean market. The India pricing and release date is yet not out. The selfie camera on the front is now 16MP + 8MP with f/1.9 aperture on both the sensors. Samsung’s Galaxy A8 will allow users to take portrait shots as well from the front camera. There is also the Live Focus feature to adjust the bokeh effect before or after the selfie has been taken as seen in the Galaxy Note 8, which has dual rear cameras.
On the back, the Galaxy A8 2018 series continues with a single camera, and this one is 16MP with f/1.7 aperture. Samsung is also bringing stickers to the selfie camera on the Galaxy A8 2018 and will also add a food mode for the rear camera, which it had previously introduced in the Galaxy S8 and Note 8 smartphones. The other big change on the camera front is the addition of video digital image stabilisation (VDis) and a new hyperlapse feature for Galaxy A8 2018 users.
Coming to the display, both Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8 Plus (2018) feature the Infinity Display with screen sporting an 18:9 aspect ratio display. The Galaxy A8 2018 series continues with the curved glass design on the back and front; it has a metal frame on the side. The Galaxy A8(2018) and A8 Plus (2018) will launch in four colours — black, orchid grey, gold and blue.
