Samsung unveils 'Galaxy A8', 'Galaxy A8+' with Infinity Display

Both of these phones feature an Infinity display as rumored, and also come with a Samsung first, dual selfie camera. Samsung's newest midrangers are made entirely of glass, and sport the Infinity Display design of their flagship siblings, albeit in a more unrefined form, with thicker top and bottom bezels, and no flexible, side-sloping displays. Both these phones are also IP68 certified and support Samsung Pay. There is a fingerprint sensor below the rear camera which is used to unlock the phone.

Both runs on an Octa-core 7885 Exynos processor that has two 2.2GHz high-powered cores and six-1.6GHz efficiency cores. The entire setup is powered by a 3,000 mAh battery in the Galaxy A8 and 3,500 mAh battery in the Galaxy A8 Plus while both devices support Fast Charging.
