Samsung welcomed the minimal bezel revolution a year ago by introducing the world to the Galaxy S8 and its Infinity Display, and now that design is finding its way to even more Samsung smartphones. Supporting the display screen is an ergonomic curved glass on both ends of the phone and you still get the premium glass and metal design that first appeared on the Galaxy A5 and A7 2017. Both the smartphones are powered by an octa-core 2.2GHz Dual Core +1.6Ghz Hexa Core processor coupled with 4GB RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage on the Galaxy A8.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy A8+ (2018) boasts a 6-inch Super AMOLED display with the same aspect ratio and resolution as the A8.

Both the smartphones feature a dual camera setup at the front with a 16MP primary sensor and an 8MP secondary sensor with Live Focus support for the bokeh mode and f/1.9 aperture. The rear camera, on the other hand, is a 16MP f/1.7 shooter with phase detection autofocus. The other big change on the camera front is the addition of video digital image stabilisation (VDis) and a new hyperlapse feature for Galaxy A8 2018 users.

Though the Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018) are advanced with dual front cameras and Infinity Display, the one aspect that is disappointing is the software part. It is touted that the smartphones can switch between the two sensors at the front to render the effect that is desired. Both the phones will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box with Samsung's own custom skin on top. The smartphones have been launched with the IP68 rating for water and dust resistance.

It also rumoured to come with in-display fingerprint sensor developed by Synaptics and improve on the Infinity Display with much thinner bezels compared to the predecessor.

Both of them support Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) and Near Field Communication (NFC) and are equipped with Samsung Pay.
