The Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) are built on Samsung’s flagship design heritage and experience. The 2018 Galaxy A-series are more stylish, practical and convenient than ever before. Both Android phones will be available in early January 2018.
Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8+
The Galaxy A8 2018 series share the same camera system. Both smartphones are equipped with a 16 megapixel F1.7 rear camera and 16 megapixel and 8 megapixel F1.9 Dual front cameras. The Dual Camera is made up of two separate cameras. 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. With the advanced Live Focus feature, you can easily adjust the Bokeh effect before or after you take the picture.
The advanced camera system makes sure you capture sharp pictures, even in low-light conditions. The new Galaxy devices also allow you to customize your photos with fun options, from adding stickers to your selfie or highlighting a culinary extravaganza with Food Mode.
Shaky video footage will be a thing of the past with Video Digital image stabilization (VDis) technology, and with an added Hyper-lapse feature, users can now create breathtaking time-lapse videos.
Playing games on the 2018 Galaxy A-series
When watching movies or playing games, the latest Galaxy A series set a new standard in 2018 for uninterrupted, immersive viewing experiences. The Infinity Display goes beyond the bezel with an immersive 18.5:9 display ratio, so that you can view the whole scene across your screen.
The large touchscreen 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 smartphone.
