Samsung Galaxy A8 Star is reportedly on the way. Samsung is yet to confirm whether this phone will hit markets or not but some rumors suggest we could get it soon. Not a while ago, some information appeared on TENAA giving some details on Galaxy A8 Star. A few months ago, Samsung introduced two flagship phones, Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 +. The network regularly appears rumors that the South Korean giant before the announcement of Galaxy Note 9 can release some more new smartphones. The first should be Samsung Galaxy S8 Lite and the second-galaxy A8 Star. By the way, the last one recently got into the database of the Chinese regulator TENAA.
The representative of ruler A will receive a 6.28-inch Super AMOLED screen with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9 and a resolution of 2220 x 1080 pixels. Not a while Samsung introduced Galaxy A8 2018 with offer same resolution. If we delve into the original A8 display, it should be noted that the Galaxy A8 (2018) has no active sides of the display. It is closed by the so-called Glass 2.5D, which at a cursory glance refers to the Edge functions of the flagship smartphones. In general, the apparatus seems narrower. It is very comfortable lying in his hand. We also noted the same in the case of Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8. The smartphone, like the flagships, got an aluminum chassis. It is made a mat and protrudes on the sidewalls. Both surfaces are filled with glass Gorilla Corning Glass 5. The device has an oleophobic coating, but we have seen it and a higher quality. The back side collects fingerprints quickly enough. Glass has one more drawback: the smartphone seem not very scratchproof, especially for people who have a very dry hand skin. In the end, it is better to use a case. Externally, the hull has become more stringent than that of the Galaxy S8. If so to speak, Galaxy A8 (2018) has got more sharp angles if such definition is applicable to modern smartphones. Due to the lack of buttons and unframed display the device is practically deprived of visual dominants. The exception is Samsung logos. Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) received a standard IP68 certification. This means that it can be up to 30 minutes at a depth of up to 1.5 meters. However, Samsung phones warn that the warranty for protection from the shower smartphone does not.
Like top smartphones, Galaxy A8 (2018) supports the Always On screen function. The user can adjust the display of the clock, some other information, even notifications on the off display. Since in OLED screens each pixel is lit separately and there is no voracious frame of illumination, Always on consumes relatively little, but still, if the user is set for maximum autonomy, it is necessary to abandon the function.
The role of SoC claims Octa-Core processor. In addition, the device will be equipped with a dual main camera with the resolution of modules 16 MP and 24 MP. The original A8 does offer a single 16MP camera, at the same time Samsung went on an interesting experiment. The main camera is made of single, and front-double. It has an optional 8-megapixel module. The company does not reveal the secrets of technology, but it can be assumed that the front-end module works the same as the Leica module for one of the Chinese manufacturers. The second matrix is not used for optical zoom, as in Note 8, but only for measuring the depth of field. It creates a blurred background effect. The main module of the front camera, judging by the pictures, has a hard focus: it is set to the distance selfie. Both cameras can record only Full HD video, a reasonable limitation in comparison with the flagship.
The Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) camera interface has not changed fundamentally. Management is no different from other Samsung models, just here are a lot more features. Keep in mind that since the phone is not officially introduced, we are discussing here rumors, leaks, and predictions to details to this phone. The battery capacity will be 3700 mAh on this phone as far I know. We are not sure if this phone will support fast charging and wireless charging. If I talk personally, I do not expect these two things.
