Samsung’s upcoming smartphones Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8 Plus (2018) has been a lot of headlines. Just a few hours ago their manual appeared on the Samsung’s official website. From the previously leaked images and renders we knew about its looks but not the specs. Today a hands-on video of the Galaxy A8 Plus (2018) has appeared on YouTube. Though the video quality is not good and doesn’t show the device properly, it reveals the full specifications.
From the spec sheet provided by the video, the Galaxy A8 Plus (2018) will feature a metal body + 2.5D and 3D Glass and measures 159.9 x 75.7 x 8.3 mm. As expected, the device will be sporting a 6 inch Super AMOLED display with FHD+ (2220 x 1080p) resolution. The device will have the infinity display currently available in the Galaxy S8 series.
Under the hood, the Galaxy A8 Plus (2018) will be powered by an Octa-core Samsung Exynos 7885 processor clocked at 2.2 GHz coupled with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage which is further expandable by micro SD card. The device will be running Android 7.1.1 Nougat and is backed by a 3500 mAh battery support for Fast Charging. The device will also have a USB TypeC port along with a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
On the optics department, the rear will have a 16 MP camera with PDAF, LED Flash and1.7 aperture. The front offers a dual camera setup consisting of a 16 MP primary camera with 1.9 aperture and a secondary 8 MP camera with 1.9 aperture. The fingerprint sensor is embedded just below the camera sensor which may provide some discomfort. The device will support Samsung Pay over both NFC and MST. The device will also come with Samsung’s virtual assistance Bixby support.
There is no word on the pricing though. Looking at all the leaks and the manual appearance it can be assumed the device will be launched next month.
