Powered by some phenomenal features including the S-Series Infinity display, 6 GB of RAM, a dual front camera, finger print lock, a 6 inch screen, and an OctaCore processor.

Let’s take a look at the Galaxy A8+ features, specifications, and price in Pakistan.

Tech Radar has held the phone in great regard while some reviewers are yet to post a perspective on the phone.

Samsung Galaxy A8+ 2018 Features 

Several tech blogs and reviewers have tagged the Galaxy A8+ as a premium look phone, primarily because of its glass finish font and back. I will not be that nice though, the design is one of the most ordinary ones from Samsung, but no fuss it’s a mid-range device for those that need a durable high spec phone.

Let’s look at the top features of the Samsung Galaxy A8 Plus.


The one thing I find really off about the Samsung Galaxy A8 plus, the phone’s poor design. While the phone has a glass front and back, it didn’t strike me as a premium design. The Galaxy A8+ is really heavy at 191gms, but don’t be turned off just yet there is some dominant hardware in that heavy body.

You will though love the curved metal edges of the Galaxy A8+, which do make the phone look stylish. The screen is a 6 inch full view HD+ and 18:5:9 ratio infinity display, the same as in the S-Series. There are no buttons, and the sensor tech has been adopted as with the S-Series. The Samsung Galaxy A8 plus is also water resistant and dust resistant.

Exynos 7885 Processor

The Galaxy A8+ body houses one of Samsung’s very own processor designs, the Exynos 7885 Octa core chip. This beast of a processor is designed with a Mali-G71 GPU designed primarily for immersive mobile gaming. The Exynos 7885 was developed as a single solution for high speed internet, mobile gaming, high definition video playback, dual camera management, and highly efficient battery performance. 

Dual Front Camera

The unique selling features of the Samsung Galaxy A8 plus may just be its superior front cameras. The two 16 MPx cameras work together to give you excellent party, outdoor, and low light photos. Supported by the Exynos processor’s Image Signal Processor, you get rich color and beautiful photos. There are some massive light sensors on both cameras for brilliant light control and exposure, to capture beautiful selfies in low light.

The back camera is also an awesome mix of specs with 4K Ultra HD recording at 21.7 MPx.

Finger Print and Face Security Lock

The Samsung Galaxy A8 Plus is designed to offer you complete security with complete biometric features. The Galaxy A8+ is secured by both fingerprint lock and biometric face scanning security. The same face scanning tech embed in new S-Series phones is now available in the mid-range series too.

Samsung Galaxy A8+ 2018 Specifications

Most Samsung Galaxy A8+ 2018 series specifications are really amazing, and the phone houses most S-series tech with a simpler body. Here are all of the Galaxy A8 plus specifications I loved:

  • 6 Gb Ram ample for gaming, browsing, video, office use, and rough multi-tasking
  • 64 GB of HDD space to house your music, photos, videos, and you can expand up to 400 GB with a memory card.
  • The Exynos 7885 Chip, an monster processor designed for enhanced photography, mobile gaming, fHD video play back performance, and efficient battery performance
  • Enhanced WIFI adapter for up to 600 MBPS speed
  • Magnificent front camera, with AI managed image optimization
  • Compatible with Samsung wearables including wireless headphones and smart watches
