Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) camera
If you expected good 12MP cameras with large 1.4micron pixels like on the flagship line, you are in for a disappointment. The Galaxy A8 and A8+ are equipped with a single 16MP camera with f/1.7 lens on the back, and dual 16MP fixed focus (f/1.9) + 8MP (f/1.9) selfie snapper at the front. We don’t expect wonders from these kits, as last year’s A7 also had 16MP cameras with small pixel sensors and pretty mediocre snappers, but Samsung may pleasantly surprise us, as there is much wider aperture and phase-detection autofocus on the rear now, and a dual camera at the front for some pleasant portrait selfie photography.Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) camera

How much for the Galaxy A8 and A8+? They will be available in January in black, orchid grey, gold and blue for about EUR499 and EUR599, respectively, and the fact that the pricing is given in European currency should hint at you that we might never see these two released officially on a US carrier.

So, what are these two waterproof, IP68-certified beauties powered by? An octa-core Exynos chipset with 2.2 GHz maximums, coupled with 4GB RAM (the A8+ has a 6GB RAM version with 64 GB storage as well). Internal memory strikes above the midrange crowd with up to 64GB models, while the battery packs are 3000mAh and 3500mAh, respectively.

Samsung Galaxy A8 2018 model
Samsung’s newest midrangers are made entirely of glass, and sport the Infinity Display design of their flagship siblings, albeit in a more unrefined form, with thicker top and bottom bezels, and no flexible, side-sloping displays. The 5.6″ and 6″ 1080×2220 pixels displays still keep Samsung’s weird signature 18.5:9 aspect ratio, though. Samsung itself acknowledges that the A8 and A8+ fit “the stunning ergonomic design that draws on Samsung’s flagship design heritage and experience” in the presser.
