Samsung has been working on its next-generation Galaxy A series smartphones to be launched in 2018. We have already seen the Galaxy A8, A5 and A7 (2018) leak recently. This time, the live images of the Plus variant of Galaxy A8, dubbed as Galaxy A8+ (2018) have surfaced on Chinese social networking site Weibo.
Earlier, we reported that Samsung has been working on the 2018 version of its Galaxy A8 smartphone that was last launched in 2016. The front panel of the alleged Galaxy A8 (2018) had been spotted in a render revealing its minimal bezels and dual camera on the front. Now the Galaxy A8+ 2018 has surfaced online for the first time ever.
There are two images of Samsung Galaxy A8 Plus (2018) shared by the Weibo user. The alleged phone is seen sporting an infinity display and has SM-A730F/DS model number. This also confirms the earlier leaks that suggested that next year’s Galaxy A series would come with infinity displays.
Samsung Galaxy A8 Plus 2018 Specifications
Earlier versions of Galaxy A series have had mid-range level design and internal specs. This time, the company has adopted its popular infinity display for the mid-range Galaxy A series as well. The leaked pictures on Weibo show that the Galaxy A8 Plus will be rocking an Infinity Display like the Galaxy S8/S8 Plus, and the Galaxy Note 8.
Further, another significant change we could see in 2018 version of Galaxy A8 is the placement of the fingerprint sensor. As per the leaks, the fingerprint sensor will be shifted to the back of the phone. Also, since the phone will have an Infinity Display, there will be no capacitive buttons.
Moreover, in the leaks, a dual front camera can also be seen. The rumors also suggest that the Galaxy A8 Plus (2018) will come with a 16MP rear camera. On the front, the device will come with a dual camera setup. Further, the phone is expected to be powered by an Exynos 7885 Octa-Core processor coupled with 4GB RAM. For storage, the Galaxy A8 Plus (2018) could pack 32GB internal storage, expandable up to 256GB via microSD card. The device will probably run on the Android 7.1.2 Nougat.
Samsung is planning to launch its Galaxy A 2018 series in the first quarter of 2018, however, there is not any official confirmation regarding this. If we talk about devices, now the Galaxy A8 Plus (2018) has also been added to the list which already has the Galaxy A5 (2018), Galaxy A7 (2018), and Galaxy A8 (2018).
