Samsung Introduces The Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018)

Samsung Malaysia Electronics introduced the latest additions to the Galaxy A series – the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018). The Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) feature a Dual Front Camera, a large Infinity Display and stunning ergonomic design that draws on Samsung’s flagship design heritage and experience. With additional everyday features, the new Galaxy A series is more stylish, practical and convenient than ever before.

Snap bright, clear selfies with the 16MP F1.7 rear camera and 16MP+8MP F1.9 Dual Front Camera. The Dual Front Camera is made up of two separate cameras so you can switch between the two to take the type of selfie you want – from close-ups with the background to portrait shots with a clear and crisp background. And with the advanced Live Focus feature, you can easily adjust the bokeh effect before or after you take the picture to create high-quality images.

From day to night, the advanced camera makes sure you capture sharp images, even in low-light conditions. The new devices also allow you to customize your photos with fun options, from adding stickers to your selfie or highlighting a culinary extravaganza with Food Mode.  Shaky video footage will be a thing of the past with video digital image stabilisation (VDis) technology, and with an added hyperlapse feature, you can now create time-lapse videos that let you record, tell and share even longer stories.

When watching movies or playing games, the latest Galaxy A devices set a new standard for uninterrupted, immersive viewing experiences. The Infinity Display goes beyond the bezel with an immersive 18.5:9 display ratio[1], so that you can view the whole scene across your screen for the ultimate cinematic experience. The large screen is supported with ergonomic curved glass on the back and front. Its sleek glass and metal frame, smooth curves and comfortable grip make it even easier to watch or interact with content on your phone.

The Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) are available in three colours including black, gold and orchid gray[2]. Both devices will continually keep you informed with the Always On Display, meaning you can get information at a glance without unlocking your phone. With Samsung Pay[3], there’s no need to bring your wallet with you every time you go out. Supporting Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) and Near Field Communication (NFC), the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) can be used virtually anywhere you can tap or swipe your card with one swipe and one fingerprint scan.

Offering IP68 water and dust resistance[4], the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) can withstand the elements, including sweat, rain, sand and dust, making it suitable for nearly any activity or situation. The Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) support microSD cards so you can expand your storage capacity by up to 256GB, and are the first in the A series to support Samsung’s Gear VR.

The Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) will be available in January 2018.
