The device is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm 835 processor and runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system.

Both the phones feature Infinity displays with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Galaxy A8 will feature 5.6-inch Full HD AMOLED display while Galaxy A8 Plus comes with 6-inch Full HD AMOLED display with a resolution of 2220x1080 pixels. 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 device also incorporates a fingerprint sensor, facial recognition and iris scanner along with this it also offers support for Samsung Pay. A8 has 4GB RAM with 32GB/64GB internal storage, the bigger A8+ is available in two RAM+storage configurations of 4GB+32GB and 6GB+64GB. Mali-G71 GPU takes care of graphics in both the smartphones. These two are the latest handset in the Galaxy A series and happens to be the successor of Galaxy A8 2017. The smaller A8 gets a modest 3,000mAh capacity unit while the A8+ gets a larger 3,500mAh unit. These are probably the first mid-range smartphones with Bluetooth 5.0 on board. There is a rear camera as well with 16MP sensor with LED flash.

It is first-time that Samsung has come up with dual-camera lens in the front. A primary 16MP f/1.9 sensor is paired to a secondary 8MP sensor. There's also a Live Focus feature which lets you adjust bokeh effect.

There you have it.

Samsung announced their Galaxy A8 and A8 Plus smartphones earlier and the company said that the handset would be launching in January in the US. It's good to see Samsung upping the game, and looking to compete with brands. Both phones will be available in four colors including black, orchid grey, gold and blue. As stated, the devices will be initially sold in the European market, and will later on make it to other markets.
