Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) makes a big splash

Pool party debut for Samsung’s new water and dust resistant selfie phone

Splashing into the new year are the Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018), Samsung’s new mid-range selfie-centric smartphones. 

With a dual 16MP and 8MP f1.9 front camera set up and Live Focus feature much like its cousins in the flagship line up, the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) allows for varied selfies and adjustable background blur. The f1.9 front camera and f1.7 16MP rear camera will do just fine in low-light conditions as well.

Both the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) are IP68 water and dust resistance so whether you’re having fun and taking underwater pool selfies or on the go and need to answer calls in a downpour, both phones will have no issues performing. 

For those who want a vlog of their holidays or just grabbing coffee with friends, video digital image stabilisation (vDIS) technology ensures that your footage isn’t shaky and the hyperlapse feature will make time-lapse videos a doddle.

The A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) are equipped with Samsung Pay, Bixby, dual messenger and have expandable storage via SD card slot.
