The Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8+ (2018) are upper-midrange Android smartphones produced by Samsung Electronics. They were announced on 19 December 2017.[1] The devices run Android 7.1.1 "Nougat" out-of-the-box with Samsung Experience 8.5.

Product positioning[edit]

As a less expensive alternative to the flagship Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+, the midrange A8/A8+ have a similar "Infinity Display" design aesthetic with an 18.5:9 panel and narrow bezels. However, the A8's display is a FHD+ resolution flat panel, compared to the S8's QHD+ curved panel.[2][3]

The Samsung Galaxy A8 replaced the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) and A8+ replaced the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) which was never being sold in Europe.
