Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8 Plus 2018 to go on sale in India on January 10

Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8+ 2018 to go on sale in India on January 10

According to a report by Phone Radar, the new 2018 Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8 Plus are set to be launched in India on Wednesday, January 10.As of yet, Samsung India has not confirmed any availability or pricing information regarding these two devices, nor have we seen any teasers from any of the online retailers.

  • India is the latest market to get the new Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018). It already hit Vietnam, while and the EU, which only got the smaller Galaxy A8.
  • The new upper midranger is available for pre-order on Amazon India, with a launch date of January 20, confirming last-week rumors.
  • The Galaxy A8+ (2018) has an Infinity Display and a Super AMOLED panel. The chipset is Exynos 7885 with eight CPU cores clocked at 2.2 GHz. Samsung put one primary 16 MP camera on the back with a fingerprint scanner below.
  • On the front, there is dual-cam setup – 16 MP + 8 MP with support for Live Focus portrait selfies.

Galaxy A8

As expected, the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) adopt the Infinity Display design of the S-series. This includes the 18.5:9 aspect ratio and curved glass, but not the resolution – the panels are 1080p+. That is still enough to make these the first A-series phones to support Gear VR, however.

The smaller A8 has a 5.6″ screen while the A8+ stretches to 6″. This puts them on either side of the Galaxy S8 screen in terms of size (5.8″). Again, these are followups to the A5 and A7 from last year rather than sequels to the original Galaxy A8.

Galaxy A8 Plus

The status of premium Galaxy phones further affords these two Samsung Pay support (with MST), IP68 waterproofing and fast charging over USB-C. The battery capacities are 3,000mAh and 3,500mAh for the smaller and larger models respectively (matching the S8 duo).

The phones will come with Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box, which is slightly disappointing for phones launching in early January 2018. Price-wise, we can expect the Galaxy A8 to go for €499 while the larger model will go for €599. No word on where the phone will be sold outside of Europe – we might expect some more details about possible US availability once CES rolls around.
