Samsung’s Galaxy A8 and A8+ Feature Gorgeous Design and Top End Specs

Samsung has unveiled the updates for its prime mid-range A-series phones. The new A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) come with wider Infinity Edge displays, waterproofing and dual front-facing cameras.

Design and Display

The metal-based design now comes with added functionality thanks to its IP68 certification (allowing dust and water resistance), and comes in Black, Gold, Grey and Blue.

The display also comes with a wider Infinity Edge design, in either 5.6 or 6-inch (A8+) iterations. It comes with a curved glass panel.

Internals and Storage

Under the hood, you get an octa-core processor with 4 GB RAM on the smaller version, with the Plus version coming with optional 6 GB RAM. Storage options range between either 32 or 64 GB, with microSD card slots on both phones.


The back comes with a bright 16 MP f/1.7 sensor with LED Flash and digital image stabilization. Hyper Lapse mode is also available.

More-importantly, the front comes with a dual 16 + 8 MP sensor, with Live Focus allowing background blur.


The battery is one of the few aspects not shared between the two devices, with the smaller phone coming with a 3,000 mAh cell and the Plus version coming with a 3,500 mAh unit. Both support fast-charging.

The Galaxy A8 will be available for 499 Euros, while the A8+ available for 599 Euros. More details should follow at the CES event next month.

    • MaisaM Musaddiq

      even 50k is high when you compare it with oppo and huawei.

      • Adeel

        Oppo ghareebon ka iPhone hai us mein apna kch hai he nhn design se user interface tak sab kch iPhone ki copy, Huawei thoda badla hai par abhi bhi wo baat nhn hai warna Huawei k pehle wale phones ka software dekhen to iOS yad dila deta infact abhi b setting menu same iOS style hai.
        Samsung use karne k baad pata chalta hai k haan kch alag hai jo kisi ki copy nhn hai

      • AD

        man. You are comparing abu with kids.

        • MaisaM Musaddiq

          If you want to talk like this then Nokia is/was the abu of all. Being abu doesn’t mean you’re better, you’ve to study the market and launch a product according to the needs of the customers. People in Pakistan are more price conscious Samsung is better than Oppo, no doubt, but its not this better that you charge almost Rs 20,000 more.

  • Muhammad Adeel

    Another samsuck phone, full of bloatwares.

    • Adeel

      Which bloatwares ?

      • Muhammad Adeel

        Use the Samsuck phone and you know what i am talking about, for starter Touchwiz itself is a bloatware. Vanilla Android is the android without Bloatware.

        • Adeel

          I’m already using Samsung and I still didn’t get your thinking
          Which bloatware ?
