Samsung’s Galaxy A8 2018 To Feature An 18:9 Display, But It’s Not Bezel-less

Samsung’s shift into the budget market has been very well-received for the average consumer. The Korean company is yet to unveil its lineup of smartphones that aim at the mid-range market. With Samsung’s A series being praised for bringing excellent features to the mid-range market, its about time Samsung shows off what they’ve been working on for 2018.

So far, based off of what the community has been murmuring about, we could finally pick up on a few clues that may be present on the A8 2018. Ronald Quandt has recently released a number of images of what seems to be simple layout of what the Samsung Galaxy A8 may look like. The leaker from WinFuture also alleges that these images came from the user manual that would be present in the device. Based off of what we could find, there’s quite a number of shifts here and there throughout the device to make it better.

The most significant change with the A8 2018 has to be that 18:9 display with rounded corners. What’s noticeable is that the device would have noticeable bezels towards both sides of the device. On top of that, the Samsung Galaxy A8 2018 would also pack dual selfie camera at the front with the second lens most probably being dedicated to a wider field-of-view.

Having a look at the rear of the device, the we could see an S8 like back, making the device comfortable to hold. Alongside that, Samsung has picked up on the criticism and has opted to put the fingerprint scanner under the camera lens.

Regarding the pricing, it would obviously replace the A8 2017. Although, we have no news if Samsung would want to add a premium on top of the phone.
