Galaxy A8 is the budget phone you are looking for

Galaxy A8, A8+ are now official

The Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) also has a dual-lens 16MP and 8MP front-facing camera, letting you choose between close-ups or shots that fit more of the background in. The devices are the first in Samsung's A series to support Gear VR.

"With the release of the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+(2018), we're bringing our customers' favorite features from our flagship smartphones, such as the Infinity Display and our first Dual Front Camera with Live Focus, to our Galaxy A series, which is already known for its premium design", Junho Park, Vice President of Global Product Planning, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronic said in a press statement.

The new Galaxy A8 has a 5.6-inch Super AMOLED screen on the front, with the same 18.5:9 aspect ration as its bigger brethren, and a 1,080 x 2,220 pixel resolution.

Processor: Both the Galaxy A8 and the Galaxy A8+ 2018are powered by Samsung's in-house Exynos 7885 processor.

Internal storage: The Galaxy A8 2018 and the Galaxy A8+ 2018 will be available in 32GB and 64GB internal storage options with both the options supporting expandable storage by up to 256GB via a micro-SD card slot.

Rear camera: Both the phones have a 16-megapixel rear sensor with f/1.7 aperture, phase detection autofocus, LED flash and 1080p video recording. Digital stabilization was added for steadier videos while the Hyperlapse mode will help condense things to just the gist.

The Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8 Plus (2018) will launch in four colours including black, orchid grey, gold and blue.

Both devices also sport the Always On Display, and come with support for Samsung Pay. Unfortunately, these devices are launching with Android 7.1.1 in early January.

Battery: While the A8 2018 is backed by a 3,000mAh battery, the A8+ 2018 has a larger 3,500mAh battery inside. The Galaxy A8 (2018) & Galaxy A8+ (2018) will be water and dust resistant. Again, these are followups to the A5 and A7 from a year ago rather than sequels to the original Galaxy A8.
