The phones also take the Infinity Display design from the S8 and Note 8 devices, meaning you get more screen and less bezel. This is the first Samsung device to sport a dual rear camera setup. Both smartphones are powered by the same 2.2GHz octa-core Samsung Exynos 7885 processor. The bigger brother Galaxy A8+ 2018 model is available in two different variant with 4 GB RAM supporting 32 GB storage and 6 GB RAM model with 64 GB storage. The A8 (2018) has a 3000mAh battery, whereas the A8+ (2018) has a 3500mAh battery.

As for connectivity options, the phone offers Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, LTE connectivity, NFC (supports Samsung Pay as well), Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C and Global Positioning System. The upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9+ are also expected to have the fingerprint scanner at the same position. There is a single 16 mega pixel camera on the rear side with f/1.9 aperture. And with the advanced Live Focus feature, you can easily adjust the bokeh effect before or after you take the picture to create high-quality images. The secondary 8MP sensor captures depth information to blur the background.

What is notable from the launch of the new mid-end smartphone is that Samsung made the brand names of the Galaxy A8 and A8 Plus similar to those of its flagship smartphone Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus series. Samsung has also included fast charging support via USB Type-C port and IP68 water and dust resistance just like the Galaxy S8. It's good to see Samsung upping the game, and looking to compete with brands.

Both the Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018) smartphones come with an octa-core processor; whether these are Snapdragon or Exynos chipsets are still undisclosed.
