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. And the best part is they pack Samsung's Infinity Display technology with small bezels on top and bottom. Both these phones are also IP68 certified and support Samsung Pay.

Both runs on an Octa-core 7885 Exynos processor that has two 2.2GHz high-powered cores and six-1.6GHz efficiency cores. The A8 (2018) comes in two variants with 4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage, while the A8+ (2018) comes in two variants- 4GB RAM & 32GB storage and a 6GB RAM & 64GB storage option. The storage on both the devices can be extended to 256 GB via a microSD card.

As for connectivity options, the phone offers Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, LTE connectivity, NFC (supports Samsung Pay as well), Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C and Global Positioning System.

The phone has 3000mAh battery with adaptive fast charging and a Fingerprint sensor. The upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9+ are also expected to have the fingerprint scanner at the same position. On the back, there's a nice 16MP sensor with a f/1.7 aperture, which should let in more light and improve low-light photography. Additionally, these Samsung Galaxy A series devices will be the first to feature dual selfie cameras.
