On the basis of many features and aggressive price, this Samsung Smartphone gives a strong challenge to the OnePlus5T, Nokia 8 and the recently launched HonorView 10. During the launch event, we spent some time with the Galaxy A8+ (2018). At first glance, how did we find this handset? Let’s say.
At the beginning, we tell you about the design of Samsung Galaxy A8 + (2018). This phone reminds you of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8. The reasons are the kwalad glass, glass backpanel and infiniti display. The thickness of this device is 8.3 millimeters. The width of the handset is 75.7 millimeters and the length is 159.9 millimeters. The phone body is very compact. Despite having a 6-inch display, there is no problem in holding the phone in hand. Weight is 191 grams, it is more weighty than the Galaxy S8 Plus.
Samsung Galaxy A8 + has a 6.0-inch Super AMOLED full-HD display. Its resolution is 1080×2220 pixels and the aspect ratio is 18.5: 9. Like Samsung’s existing flagship device, this phone’s screen is also vibrant and lightweight enough. The viewing angles are fine. The level of color reproduction is also accurate.
The display took place mostly on the front panel. For this reason you will get the on-screen button instead of the physical or capacitive buttons. Dual selfie camera setup is above the screen. For the first time in Samsung’s phone, two cameras have been given forward. One sensor is 16 megapixels and another 8 megapixels. We used the phone’s dual selfie camera for some time during the event, especially the Live Focus feature. It is similar to portrait mode, but it is not a matter of performance. Face recognition technology also worked fine. It also recognizes different faces in low light. The rear camera is of 16 megapixels. This sensor is F / 1.7 archer. This means that you can expect better photos in low light. Due to limited time we could not do much testing of the rear camera. In this we will tell you in detail in the review.
The back part of the device is glass. Due to the curved design, the phone’s grip is good. However, fingerprints fall easily on it. Apart from this, a lot cannot be said about the strength of the Glass Backpackel. Fingerprint sensor has got place in the bottom of the rear camera.
In the Galaxy A8 + (2018) the loudspeaker and the power button are on the right. The volume button has got place on the left side. This is where the tray for a nano SIM is also present. USB type-c port, microphone and 3.5mm headphone jack have got a place on the lower floor. The top is the semiconductor microphone. Here are the slots for the second SIM card and MicroSD card.
The new Octa-Core Samsung Acne 7885 processor has been used in the Galaxy A8+ (2018). The highest clock speed is 2.2 GHz. Let’s say that the Acinos 7885 processor is Samsung’s latest midrange chipset. The smartphone comes with 6 GB RAM. Inbuilt storage is 64 GB and it is possible to use a microSD card of up to 256 GB if needed.
Surprisingly, Samsung has used Android 7.1.1 Nouga and there is no official information about Android Orio update. The Samsung Experience 8.5 User Interface has been used instead of the company’s TouchWiz UI on Android. The Samsung Galaxy A8 + (2018) battery is 3500 mAh.
We will soon come with a detailed review of Samsung Galaxy A8 + (2018). It will be discussed in detail in the handset’s performance, battery life, camera quality, display and other aspects.
