Samsung Galaxy A8+ 2018 specifications, review and price in Nigeria

Galaxy A8+ came in different versions such as A730F (Global Single-SIM); A730F/DS (Global Dual-SIM). Also known as Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018) Duos with dual-SIM card slots.

Specs Overview

Let us briefly discuss few things about Galaxy A8+, the key features, functionalities and everything you needed to know before going for the phone.

When it comes to the display Samsung is always the king in terms of visual quality and you should expect more this time and to perfect the creation of this phone it came with a big 6.0 inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display, 1080 x 2220 pixels, 18.5:9 ratio resolution and 159.9 x 75.7 x 8.3 mm dimensions.

I was expecting this phone to come with the latest Android 8 operating system but unfortunately, we have Android 7.1.1 (Nougat) which is still perfect, the performance and speed is optimized by Octa-core 2×2.2 GHz Cortex-A73 & 6×1.6 GHz Cortex-A53 processor + Exynos 7885 Octa chipset.

Galaxy A8+ offers you the power to do more with its 4/6GB random access memory (RAM) and 32/64GB internal storage memory that allows you to easily download and install all your favorite apps, games and other media files but if you need more then it can be expanded up to 256GB using microSD card.

More attention has been given to the front selfie camera of the Galaxy A8+ than the main camera as it comes with 16MP + 8MP dual front camera while we have 16MP single rear, built to help you capture great moment and events in a grand style.

We have strong 3500 mAh battery capacity to power and keep Samsung Galaxy A8+ connected for few days when in standby mode and up to 23 hours talk time.
