Samsung unveils Galaxy A8 (2018), A8+(2018) with dual front camera

Samsung unveils Galaxy A8 (2018), A8+(2018) with dual front camera

The Galaxy A8+ will also be released in two storage variants - one with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage and the other with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

The Galaxy A8 and A8+ are the first budget-oriented Samsung phones to feature the infinity display. There is a rear camera as well with 16MP sensor with LED flash. The Galaxy A8 (2018), among the two, features a 5.6-inch full-HD+ (2220x1080 pixels) Super AMOLED display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio (the same as the Samsung Galaxy S8), while the Galaxy A8+ (2018) has a 6-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display. The smaller A8 gets a modest 3,000mAh capacity unit while the A8+ gets a larger 3,500mAh unit. Guess what, Samsung's famous Live Focus camera mode is coming to both the phones.

- Successors to the A5 and A7 2017, the A8 and A8+ 2018 have been designed from grounds up to offer a flagship Galaxy S8-kind of experience at a not so flagship Galaxy S8-kind of pricing. 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. For selfies, there's an 8-megapixel camera of f/1.7 aperture. Both the phones support fast charging. The phones run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat and will most likely be getting the Android Oreo update sometime in 2018. Both the phones have an all-glass and metal body.

The Galaxy A8 (2018) weighs 172grams, and the A8+ (2018) has a weight of 191grams.

NBC considering revival of 'The Office'
Headlined by Steve Carell as Regional Manager Michael Scott for many seasons, it eventually turned the focus on other characters. NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt has said in the past that he would be interested in reviving " The Office ".

Samsung also revealed the prices of both the phones.

- The A8 and A8+ 2018 are IP68 certified, which makes them dust and water-resistant and also they comes with Samsung's characteristic Always-on display.

Connectivity options are- Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C, NFC, GPS, and Glonass.

Samsung's adoption of the dual front camera is meant to set the phone apart from other mid-end handsets, and it is unlikely be to be adopted in the upcoming flagship phone Galaxy S9, according to an industry insider.
