Samsung's new phones have dual selfie cameras

Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ 2018 launched with Infinity display and dual front cameras

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. We don't expect wonders from these kits, as last year's A7 also had 16MP cameras with small pixel sensors and pretty mediocre snappers, but Samsung may pleasantly surprise us, as there is much wider aperture and phase-detection autofocus on the rear now, and a dual camera at the front for some pleasant portrait selfie photography.

Under the hood, both devices are powered by a Octa-core Exynos 7885 processor coupled with Mali-G71 GPU and running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box with proprietary TouchWiz UI on top.

Screen: The Galaxy A8+ 2018 is a 6-inch phone while the Galaxy A8 2018 maxes out at 5.6-inch. The Midnight Black, on the other hand, is available for the original price.

It has 16 megapixels rear camera with LED flash and f/1.7 aperture. The Galaxy S9 will continue with the facial recognition scanner feature on the front as well, though the company is expected to improve the software on this feature. For the Galaxy A8, it gets 4GB of RAM with the choice of 32GB or 64GB of storage, while the A8+ has the option of a higher spec 6GB RAM model with 64GB of storage.

The Samsung Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ were earlier speculated to launch in early 2018., succeeding the Samsung Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 from previous year.

Now we have some details on the launch date for the Galaxy A8 and A8 Plus in the United Kingdom, the two handsets are coming to the United Kingdom in April 2018.

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

It is first-time that Samsung has come up with dual-camera lens in the front. There's also a Live Focus feature which lets you adjust bokeh effect. Both the devices will support Samsung Galaxy VR and are also IP68 certified water and dust resistant.
