While these devices where successors of the A3 and A5 (2016), Samsung has chosen to give this device a new name. This way, the name fits the year of release!

Even so, the A8 2018 is a successor of the A3 and A5. This mid-range device comes equipped with a lot of features from Samsung's high-end devices. This includes the elongated Infinity Display. This midrange phone also comes equipped with two front cameras for Live Focus pictures.

The cameras on the front are 16 and 8 megapixels. Thanks to the F1.9 lenses, these cameras catch a lot of light. On the back of the phone, you'll find a single 16-megapixel camera with an F1.7 lens that takes great pictures, even in the dark. Even better, the camera does not protrude from the back!

Stunning design

Infinity Display

One of the most significant changes compared to the A series from 2017 is the screen. This screen is a lot larger and measures at 5.6 inches. The bezels at the top and bottom of the screen are thinner and the display boasts a new display ratio of 18:9, which also appeared on devices in the S8 series from 2017.
