Samsung is set to launch the mid-range Galaxy S8 doppelganger phone, aka the Galaxy A8+, in India on January 10. The company is now sending out invites to the media for a press conference on the said date where it will most likely launch the Galaxy A8+. Although the invite makes no specific mention, it talks about the year’s first big innovation, and carries with it a teaser image that hints at a phone with a bezel-less display. Since Amazon India, only recently, started teasing the Galaxy A8+ on its platform, we have reason to believe, the phone in question launching on January 10 is the same phone. Also, because the e-retail website has been teasing just the Galaxy A8+, chances are Samsung may not launch the Galaxy A8 in India at this point of time.Samsung has launched the mid-range Galaxy S8 doppelganger phones, the Galaxy A8 and the Galaxy A8+ 2018 in December 2017. Successors to the Galaxy A5 and A7 2017 phones, the Galaxy A8 and the Galaxy A8+ 2018 aim to offer flagship kind of experience at relatively mainstream prices. Featuring an all-glass and metal design, both these phones come with a bezel-less Infinity screen and a dual front camera system. Both these phones are also IP68 certified and support Samsung Pay.Also Read: Samsung Galaxy A8, A8+ (2018) launched: Top specs, features, India price and everything you need to know “With the release of the Galaxy A8(2018) and A8+(2018), we’re bringing our customers’ favorite features from our flagship smartphones, such as the Infinity Display and our first Dual Front Camera with Live Focus, to our Galaxy A series, which is already known for its premium design”, Junho Park, vice president of Global Product Planning, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics had said announcing the new phones. “The Galaxy A8(2018) and A8+(2018) exemplify our continued dedication to meeting the needs of our consumers by providing them with greater choice and convenience.” advertisementThe Galaxy A8+ comes with a 6-inch 1080p+ Super AMOLED display and is powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core (unspecified) processor with up to 6GB RAM and up to 64GB of internal storage which is expandable by up to 256GB via a micro-SD card slot.
