Live images leaked on Weibo gives a glimpse at the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8+ handsets which will feature Infinity Displays and front-facing dual cameras.
Samsung’s Galaxy A-series of phones have always been blessed with features that trickles down from its flagship phone. As the highlight of this year’s Galaxy S8 (review) and Note 8 (review) was the Infinity display and dual cameras respectively, it shouldn’t be surprising that the upcoming Galaxy A8 will sport the same.
Based on live images leaked on Weibo, we know that the soon-to-be-released Galaxy A8+ will lead this year’s pack of A-series phones and will sport an 18:9 Infinity display and dual cameras. The Galaxy A8+ will be the follow up to the Galaxy A7 (2017) (review) while the Galaxy A8 will succeed the Galaxy A5 (2017) (review). Both the Galaxy A8 and the Galaxy A8+ will likely be identical to each other, save for the screen size.
The leaked photos show a near bezel-free device that does look like Samsung’s Infinity Display with the tall aspect ratio of 18:9. However, the display doesn’t wrap around the edges like the Galaxy S8, but remains more flat against the body like the AMOLED panel on the Galaxy S8 Active.
There is also a hint of a front-facing dual camera setup in the Galaxy A8+ which would be a first if it’s indeed true. However, based on recent reports, the Galaxy A8 and the A8+ may not release in India as Samsung is reportedly streamlining its midrange offerings tailored for individual markets. The A8 and the A8+ could be made available in Germany, Poland, and Russia while most Asian markets will get the C-series phones.
