2018 Galaxy A8 smartphone
The Galaxy A8 2018 will keep users informed with the Always On Display, meaning you can get information at a glance without unlocking your smartphone. This is the first A-series device that enables virtual reality functionality in combination with the Samsung Gear VR headset. The Galaxy A8 2018 offers IP68 water and dust resistance, and supports microSD memory cards up to 256GB.
With Samsung Pay, there’s no need to bring your wallet with you every time you go out. Supporting Near Field Communication (NFC), the 2018 Galaxy A8 can be used almost anywhere you can tap your credit card. Every transaction via Samsung Pay is secure. All it takes is one swipe and one fingerprint scan to execute your money transactions. (These functions will vary by market and mobile operator).
Samsung Dual Front Camera system
The 2018 Galaxy A8 houses a 3,000mAh battery and enables advanced mobile photography. The cameras system includes a 16 megapixel F1.7 rear camera and 16 megapixel + 8 megapixel F1.9 front cameras.
The Dual Front Camera is made up of two separate cameras so users 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. And with the Live Focus feature, you can easily adjust the Bokeh effect before or after you take the photo to produce high-quality pictures.
The advanced camera system guarantees sharp images, even in low-light conditions. The 2018 Galaxy A8 smartphone also allows you to customize your photos with fun options, from adding stickers to your selfie or highlighting a culinary extravaganza with the special Food Mode.
Shaky videos will be a thing of the past with video digital image stabilization (VDis) technology, and with an added hyper-lapse feature, you can now create time-lapse videos that let you record, tell and share even longer stories.
Mid-range smartphone with Infinity Display
When watching movies or playing games, the 2018 Galaxy A offers immersive viewing experiences, with an Infinity Display that delivers an 18.5:9 display ratio, so that you can view the whole scene across your screen for the ultimate cinematic experience.
The large display is supported with ergonomic curved glass on the back and front. Its sleek glass and metal frame, smooth curves and comfortable grip make it even easier to watch or interact with content on your smart device.
Samsung offers the Galaxy A8 2018 version in three colors option: black, gold and orchid grey. The new phone will be available in selected markets from April 2018.
