Samsung is looking to get a big head start over its competition this 2018 with the announcement of its latest and first-for-the-year smartphone series: the Galaxy A8 and A8+.

The new additions to the company’s Galaxy A Series are also the first Samsung phones to sport the Ultimate Dual Selfie Camera. It lets you take bright and clear selfies with its dual 16MP + 8MP front snapper. Plus, the Live Focus and Adjustable Blur features allow you to improve your self-portraits further.

The Galaxy A8 Series also boasts a large Infinity Display with 18.2:9 display ratio for an immersive viewing experience. To complement the screen, Samsung gave the new series a seamless and full-round body—a design similar to that of Samsung’s flagship phones.

More than the design, the Galaxy A8 and A8+ boast to be a reliable driver that can withstand the elements as these phones offer an IP68 water- and dust-resistance. You can even do more with the A8+’s 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage, which is still expandable up to 256GB.

Other top-of-the-line features that the Galaxy A8 series carry include Samsung’s enhanced personal assistant BIXBY and face recognition.
