Samsung Officially Introduces Their Galaxy A8 and A8 Plus

Samsung has catering the high-end enthusiast market like the king. However, the South Korean giant hasn’t neglected the mid-range market in any way. Samsung has just unveiled the Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8+, a device that was already leaked by the YouTuber in a review.

The Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8+ feature Samsung’s Infinity Display along with Dual Front Cameras for those selfie enthusiasts. Alongside that, the Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8 Plus come with upto 6GB of RAM if you’re willing to opt in for the A8 Plus. However, what’s worth noting is that the device would run on Android 7.1 Nougat instead of Oreo, something that Samsung should have caught upto by now. Both devices are also IP68-compliant water and dust resistant and support Bluetooth 5.0.

In my opinion, I think they’re well-rounded smartphones. Considering that both of these devices we’re leaked in a YouTube video and a user manual, these devices came out to be very well-rounded and something to look forward for. Here’s a rundown of the specifications provided by Samsung.

Regarding availability, Samsung touts that the phone would be available publicly in early January 2018.
