While Samsung is working on Galaxy S9 as it will be its next flagship to launch in 2018, the company is also working on the successor to its A8 which was launched this year. Just this week, it looks like Samsung mistakenly released a user manual of the phone on its official website. At the time of writing, the manual is still visible on Samsung’s website.
From the manuals, it appears that the phones will have almost identical builds and they both will come with a bezel-less display much like Galaxy S8 and S8+. The phones will also have a USB-C port which will be a first.
There will be a fingerprint sensor too. which will be on the back with a camera which will have a single LED flash. Surprisingly enough, there will be two cameras on the front -probably for those duck-faced selfies. The A8 and A8+ will support dual SIM setups or one SIM slot can be traded for a MicroSD expansion. These phones will also be water and dust resistant.
The phone will have a 6 inch Super AMOLED display and it will run on an octa-core processor paired with 6GB of Onboard RAM and 64GB of storage.
A8 and A8+ will be members of Galaxy A lineup which already include Galaxy A3, A5, and A7. Considering Galaxy A is one of the popular phones in the mid-range market, it will be interesting to see how the phones perform in the market.
