The year is almost done so it’s easy to anticipate that there’s no more any major launches for the next two weeks. Not so with Samsung as they just introduced the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) both of which comes with dual front cameras and infinity display.
Both the Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) comes with a 16MP FF + 8MP f/1.9 dual front cameras. The 16MP FF main aims to deliver clear selfies with crisp detail from the subject to the back ground. The 8MP secondary camera, on the other hand, applies bokeh to your photo to create a more artistic shot. Both smartphones come with Live Focus to adjust the bokeh before capturing the moment.
On the display front, the Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018) comes with an 18.5:9 Infinity Display. The Galaxy A8 will come with 5.6-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2220 x 1080 while the bigger A8+ (2018) will have a 6.0-inch screen with the same resolution. The two smartphones are also IP68-certified for water and dust. Here are the smartphones’ specifications:
