We spent some time with the Galaxy A8+ (2018) during the launch event. How did we like this handset at first glance? Let us tell.

In the beginning we will tell you about the design of Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018). This phone will remind you of Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8. The reason is curved glass, glass backpanel and infinity display. The thickness of this device is 8.3 millimeters. The width of the handset is 75.7 mm and length is 159.9 mm. The body of the phone is very compact. Despite having a 6-inch display, there is no problem in holding the phone in hands. The weight is 191 grams, which is heavier than the Galaxy S8 Plus.

Samsung Galaxy A8+ has a 6.0-inch SuperAMOLED full-HD display. Its resolution is 1080×2220 pixels and the aspect ratio is 18.5:9. Like Samsung’s current flagship devices, the screen of this phone is also vibrant and bright enough. Viewing angles are decent. The level of color reproduction is also accurate.

The display has taken up most of the space on the front panel. For this reason, you will get on-screen buttons instead of physical or capacitive buttons. There is a dual selfie camera setup above the screen. For the first time in a Samsung phone, two cameras have been provided on the front. One sensor is of 16 megapixels and the other is of 8 megapixels. We used the phone’s dual selfie camera briefly during the event, especially the Live Focus feature. It is similar to portrait mode, but the performance is not the same. The face recognition technology also worked well. It recognizes different faces even in low light. The rear camera is 16 megapixels. This sensor has F/1.7 aperture. This means you can expect better photos in low light. Due to limited time, we could not do much testing of the rear camera. We will tell you about this in detail in the review.


The back part of the device is made of glass. Due to the curved design, the grip of the phone is good. However, fingerprints easily fall on it. Apart from this, not much can be said about the strength of the glass backpanel. The fingerprint sensor has been placed below the rear camera.

The loudspeaker and power button on the Galaxy A8+ (2018) are on the right side. The volume button has got a place on the left side. There is also a tray for a Nano SIM here. USB Type-C port, microphone and 3.5 mm headphone jack have been placed at the bottom. There is a secondary microphone on the top. This is where there are slots for a second SIM card and a microSD card.

The new octa-core Samsung Exynos 7885 processor has been used in the Galaxy A8+ (2018). The maximum clock speed is 2.2 GHz. Let us tell you that Exynos 7885 processor is Samsung’s latest midrange chipset. We will take a decision on its performance during the review. The smartphone comes with 6 GB RAM. The inbuilt storage is 64 GB and it is possible to use a microSD card up to 256 GB if needed.


The surprising thing is that Samsung has used Android 7.1.1 Nougat and there is no official information available about Android Oreo update. Samsung Experience 8.5 user interface has been used instead of the company’s TouchWiz UI on top of Android. The battery of Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018) is 3500 mAh.

We will be back with a detailed review of the Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018) soon. In this, performance, battery life, camera quality, display and other aspects of the handset will be discussed in detail.
