Samsung Galaxy A8. Well, it seems that at last, the rumors of Samung's new mid-range are over. The Samsung Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ have been presented officially and bring many new features. We are going to tell you now all the information about them with their technical sheet with characteristics, price and date of arrival.
Rumors were that this year, the Galaxy A5 would disappear from the market to give more space to the Galaxy A8, and that these were the new range of Samsung. Although this has not been confirmed, given that they can still launch the A5 next year, it seems that these A8 and A8 + that have just been presented are those destined to cover the entire premium range of Samsung, only leaving room for Galaxy J mid-range.
Data sheet of the Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8+: infinite screen, Exynos processor and double front camera
Well the most remarkable of these new Galaxy A8 is the fact that they incorporate the infinite screen that we saw in the high range of Samsung last year. These smartphones have a completely renovated design, without resembling anything like last year, but with much similarity to the Galaxy S8, especially in the front, while in the back, we see a single camera with a fingerprint sensor underneath. She, just like the supposed new Galaxy S9.
These smartphones have a screen of 5.6 inches and 6 inches depending on the version, both with a SuperAMOLED technology and FullHD + resolution. Its screen format is 18: 9, a format that is being standardized today due to the possibility of leaving such small frames. The processor, in this case, is one of Samsung's own, an 8-core Exynos that works at a speed of 2.2 GHz.
