Samsung has finally launched its new Galaxy A8 (2018) series in Malaysia. These are their new premium mid-range smartphones that offer dual-selfie cameras along with IP68 dust and water resistance. Announced globally last month, the Galaxy A8 (2018) series is priced from RM1,799 which is much lower than we originally expected.

Samsung‘s off to a sexy start in 2018 with the launch of a pair of brand new premium mid-range handsets that have a lot of things in common with the company’s flagships, and even improves on some of their weaknesses. They’re called the Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8+ (so it’s more in line with their Galaxy S lineup) and we finally have a launch date for them here in Malaysia.
Hint: It’s next week.
Before the year is out, Samsung has officially announced its new Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018). These are their latest premium mid-range smartphones that feature a large Infinity Display and dual front cameras that can produce Live Focus selfies.
UPDATE: The Galaxy A8/A8+ for 2018 is now official.
With “FullView” 18:9 displays becoming mainstream for 2018, Samsung will be releasing their latest mid-range Galaxy A (2018) series that will come with its very own Infinity Display. We’ve seen how it would look like in a couple of leaked renders and now we get an even clearer view thanks to a leaked hands-on video.
At 5.7 inches, it has the same screen size as the Galaxy Note series and it is also Samsung’s thinnest smart phone at only 5.9mm. The Galaxy A8 is officially launched in Malaysia at RM1,888 and we’re getting the 32GB storage option along with dual-SIMs supporting 4G LTE.
The Galaxy A8 which is Samsung’s thinnest smart phone right now is heading to Malaysia very soon. Launching on 30th July to be exact, the Galaxy A8 offers a phablet size experience with a 5.7″ Full HD display and it comes with a Galaxy S6 inspired design.
After tons of leaks, the Galaxy A8 is now official with a thickness of just 5.9mm. While it won’t break any new world records, the Galaxy A8 is the thinnest smart phone that Samsung has ever produced, beating its previous 6.3mm record on the Galaxy A7.
From the exterior design, it still maintains the same unibody approach like the rest of its Galaxy A series but the A8 inherits some design cues from their current flagship. For starters, the metal frame has some chiseled design and the front looks like a larger Galaxy S6. Even the home button has a fingerprint scanner which unlocks at a single touch.
We recently reported that Samsung‘s thinnest smartphone, the Galaxy A8 was well on its way, with the potential pricing and launch date getting leaked. Now thanks to our tipster @KevinNgTK, we know that it might be priced at RM 1,888 and might be coming sooner than we think since it was spotted in SIRIM’s database. The device is reported to be launching in China July 17th.
