Both the Galaxy A8 (2018), as well as the Galaxy A8+ (2018), features the Infinity Display and boast an aspect ratio of 18.5:9.

Under the hood, both devices are powered by a Octa-core Exynos 7885 processor coupled with Mali-G71 GPU and running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box with proprietary TouchWiz UI on top. The smaller A8 gets a modest 3,000mAh capacity unit while the A8+ gets a larger 3,500mAh unit. There is a 16-megapixel fixed focus, f/1.9 camera sensor and an 8-megapixel f/1.9 sensor. For the Galaxy A8, it gets 4GB of RAM with the choice of 32GB or 64GB of storage, while the A8+ has the option of a higher spec 6GB RAM model with 64GB of storage. The upcoming flagship Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are expected to feature the same camera placement.

Its connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and USB Type-C port.

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. Both handsets are IP68 rated water and dust resistance. It's good to see Samsung upping the game, and looking to compete with brands. Interestingly Samsung just launched the Galaxy A8 (2018) smartphones and both have a single rear camera with the fingerprint scanner below the module, so it looks like the company will be implementing this particular design. Apart from the discounts on Samsung devices, there are other enticing plans such as the additional 4G data from Reliance Jio, which will be given to customers who make the purchases from this sale. However, more in-depth information about the two phones will be revealed at CES 2018.
