- Leaked panel shows thin bezels on Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018)
- Panel also points to two front-facing camera sensors on new Galaxy A8
- Asus and Lenovo already brought dual-selfie camera smartphones
While its siblings were well leaked previously, the Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) is now in rumours as the top-end model in the new Galaxy A family. The front panel of the unannounced Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) has been spotted in few renders that suggest its minimal bezels as well as two camera sensors on the front to capture compelling selfies.
The leaked front panel, courtesy GizChina, shows two circular cutouts that point to a dual-selfie camera setup on the Galaxy A8 (2018). Interestingly, companies like Asus and Lenovo opted for two front-facing camera sensors in the recent past, but Samsung hasn’t yet brought any such hardware tweak. The South Korean company did unveil the Galaxy Note 8 (review) with a dual rear camera setup earlier this year and brought the Galaxy J+ as an affordable dual-camera smartphone back in September.
In addition to the dual selfie camera, the leaked panel of the Galaxy A8 (2018) apparently suggests thin bezels on the left and right of its display. The panel doesn’t look curved, unlike some of the recent bezel-less smartphones. However, the actual shape of the frontal view would be visible only on the handset – not through the surfaced glass panel.
Earlier this month, the Galaxy A5 (2018) and the Galaxy A7 (2018) received Wi-Fi and FCC certification. Samsung also revealed the existence of both the new Galaxy A series smartphones through its official support pages. If we believe the details provided by the Wi-Fi Alliance, the Galaxy A5 (2018) and the Galaxy A7 (2018) both will run Android 7.1 Nougat and have dual-band Wi-Fi support.
Some case renders of the Galaxy A5 (2018) had emerged last week that showed a thin-bezel display and a rear-facing fingerprint sensor on the new smartphone. Recent reports suggested that the Galaxy A5 (2018) will come with a 5.5-inch full HD+ display and include an Exynos 7885 chip, paired with 4GB RAM.
Considering some historical records, Samsung is expected to unveil its new Galaxy A range, including the Galaxy A5 (2018), Galaxy A7 (2018), the Galaxy A8 (2018), in January. The new lineup is also likely to be showcased at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) with a dedicated Bixby Voice button, similar to the Galaxy S8 flagship.
