For selfies, there's an 8-megapixel camera of f/1.7 aperture.

Now we have some details on the launch date for the Galaxy A8 and A8 Plus in the United Kingdom, the two handsets are coming to the United Kingdom in April 2018.

For one, they're the first phones from Samsung to have dual cameras on the front.

The Galaxy A8 and A8 Plus are the first Samsung devices, apart from the S8 and Note 8, to feature the trademark Infinity Display, which includes the 18.5:9 aspect ratio and curved glass.

Both runs on an Octa-core 7885 Exynos processor that has two 2.2GHz high-powered cores and six-1.6GHz efficiency cores.




The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 offers 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage (only one variant available in India) which can be expanded further by adding a microSD card.

Like the previous Galaxy A range of smartphones, both the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) are differentiated with only some features. A 16MP rear camera adores the back with a bright f/1.7 aperture. The Dual Front Camera is made up of two separate cameras so you 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. Out of the box, both models are still running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

The Samsung Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ were earlier speculated to launch in early 2018., succeeding the Samsung Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 from previous year.

It's not just good looks: The new A8 phones support NFC, which means Samsung Pay and Android Pay are compatible, and it's got an IP68 rating, making it dust and waterproof. However, these devices will start sales in early 2018, perhaps in January, and will come in four different colors: black, orchid grey, gold and blue.

Both the Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018) smartphones come with an octa-core processor; whether these are Snapdragon or Exynos chipsets are still undisclosed.
