As of now there are no official words on the price of the Galaxy A8+, however chances are that in India the smartphone may be priced around Rs 40,000.

To recall, Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ was launched in South Korea in mid-December 2017. Soon after the launch, Samsung had announced to bring the phones to other markets, including India -- and that's what the company is doing. However, as of now, there are no words on Galaxy A8 India launch.

The Android 7.1.1 Nougat-running Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018) appear as the successors to the company's last year launched Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A7 (2017). The Galaxy A8 (2018) features a 5.6-inch full-HD+ (2220x1080 pixels) Super AMOLED display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio (the same as the Samsung Galaxy S8), while the Galaxy A8+ (2018) has a 6-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display. Under the hood, both the handsets have an octa-core chip with two cores clocked at 2.2GHz and six cores clocked at 1.6GHz. The Galaxy A8 (2018) has 4GB RAM, whereas the Galaxy A8+ (2018) comes in 4GB and 6GB RAM options.

The dual front camera setup includes a 16-megapixel fixed focus, f/1.9 image sensor and an 8-megapixel f/1.9 sensor. Both the sensors enable the Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018) to provide blurred background in images with a bokeh effect. Users can also switch the preloaded camera app to have a clear and crisp background as well as a focused foreground. The smartphones have a Live Focus feature to adjust the bokeh effect while capturing self-portraits. Additionally, the smartphones have a 16-megapixel camera sensor on the back with an f/1.7 lens.
