So instead of updating the A5 (2017) to 7.1.1, Samsung decides to release a new phone instead. Oh, and instead of updating this A8 (2018) to Oreo, Samsung will release A8 (2019) instead.
The only redeeming factor of Samsung A phones is that it's the few less expensive phones with IP68 rating.
Anonymous, 19 Dec 2017Any speculation on the number of cores of Mali-G71?i think this phone will have 4 cores of G71
Design wise: looks good enough. The metal/glass design never had been a problem for me.
Performance wise: Exynos 7885 is comparable with SD653 but is nowhere near SD660 (which should be the chipset of choice for the price).
Camera: looks promising, but the lack of OIS is a significant disadvantage.
Battery: I expect same or a bit lower endurance than last model.
I currently own an A5 (2017) and never gave me any problems. A comprehensive review will decide whether I get this device or not.
I believe that in my country it will probably sell this about $400
Android.Oreo, 19 Dec 2017Dont worry price will reduce by 100 euros in about 2-3 months after launch.So will the S8 !!
500 euro no ois 3000mah battery
let me just divide d money n get a decent xiaomi with a 250 euro
the galaxy s8 is priced at $620 in my country , so if its price is really $500 , so its not worth it at all !
RASEL BD, 19 Dec 2017Price shuld have under 400 Euro. Otherwise, it will fail to meet market demand.Dont worry price will reduce by 100 euros in about 2-3 months after launch.
So... notification LED, dual front camera, same battery as S8, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage???? Just little worse not curved screen? are they trying to make the A series almoust the same as S???
I bet this also will have a shitty camera like it's predessor. never buy samsung unless it's a flagship
Oh boy, this looks good, but sad there is no 1080p video recording with 60 fps, and again no OIS! The 2016 generation had it. That would have made this a perfect mid-ranger.

Great mobile from Samsung, But pricing will vary according to country
just as the galaxy a5 2017 was riddled with issues like front camera focus etc . this one too will be and with that selling price Samsung will certainly be a lot less popular in 2018 with lesser market share ...galaxy a5 2017 is presently selling at 240 euro from 430 euro in India sleek software design can only get you that far ....Samsung is turning into a Sony
