Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018) with dual selfie cameras launched on Wednesday in India. Priced at Rs 32,990, Samsung’s new smartphone will be exclusively available on Amazon India from January 20.
The dual-SIM Nano Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018) marks the company’s first smartphone with a bezel-less design in lower tier of premium category. The smartphone is the first from Samsung’s camp to feature dual-selfie cameras. Dual front cameras let you switch between them for close-ups with the background to portrait shots and the Live Focus feature lets you adjust the bokeh effect before or after you take the picture.
Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018) comes with a 6-inch full HD+ Super AMOLED display. It runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box and is powered by Samsung’s in-house designed and developed Exynos 7885 octa-core processor coupled with 6GB of RAM. The smartphone comes with 64GB of storage, expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card.
Talking about one of the key highlights of the phone, it has two cameras on the front – featuring a 16-megapixel sensor and an 8-megapixel sensor. The dual-camera setup allows the phone to take selfies with a DSLR-like shallow depth-of-field effect, popularly known as portrait mode. On the back, it has a 16-megapixel camera with f/1.7 aperture.
Powered by a 3,500mAh battery, the phone supports dual-SIM (nano+nano), Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and USB Type-C port. It has a fingerprint scanner on the back.
