The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 offers 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage (only one variant available in India) which can be expanded further by adding a microSD card.
On the rear side is a 16-megapixel camera with f/1.7 aperture and LED flash. Both handset will be available in black, orchid grey, and blue. It asp has octa-core Exynos 7885 14nm processor with Mali-G71 GPU and 6 GB RAM.
Internally, both the phones are powered by Samsung Exynos 7885 chipset, built on the 14nm manufacturing process. "The 5.6" and 6" 1080x2220 pixels displays still keep Samsung's weird signature 18.5:9 aspect ratio, though. Samsung combines a 16-megapixel shooter with an 8-megapixel one, letting you shoot bokeh-style photos front-on.
Samsung also changed the fingerprint placement in these phones, which is now located below the rear camera sensor.
As for connectivity options, the phone offers Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, LTE connectivity, NFC (supports Samsung Pay as well), Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C and Global Positioning System.
Other common specifications between the A8 and A8+ are USB Type-C port, fast charging support, NFC, IP68 water/ dust resistance, and fingerprint sensor.
Both the newly launched devices come with dual selfie camera setup. They will be available in January in black, orchid grey, gold and blue for about EUR499 and EUR599, respectively, and the fact that the pricing is given in European currency should hint at you that we might never see these two released officially on a United States carrier.
The Samsung Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ were earlier speculated to launch in early 2018., succeeding the Samsung Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 from a year ago. The phones will run on Android 7.1.1. Both the phones come equipped with an Infinity screen, which means, that much like Samsung's Galaxy S8/Galaxy S8+, the Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ 2018 also come with an edge-to-edge bezel-less display.
