This page provides detailed specifications, features, and price of Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018).
The successor to Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) – specs, review – has been unveiled, and it isn’t named Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018). Instead, Samsung has gone with Galaxy A8 (2018). Do not ask us why; we have no idea either.
But the A8 (2018) is all shades of beautiful. It has a metal frame with glass on both front and back. The screen size has been bumped up this time from 5.2 inches on the A5 (2017). It spots an Infinity display of 5.6 inches. There is protection by Gorilla Glass, as well as water and dust resistance.
On the photography end, the Samsung Galaxy A8 2018 features the first dual selfie camera on any Samsung smartphone. The rear camera is a 16 megapixel snapper with f/1.7 aperture and LED flash. There is no OIS though.
The 3000mAh capacity battery has fast charge support, so you can top it up quickly.
