Samsung Electronics Africa on Monday announced the introduction of its latest addition to the Galaxy A series: the 2018 Galaxy A8+ unto the Ghanaian market.
The Galaxy A8+ features a Dual Front Camera, a large Infinity Display and stunning ergonomic design that draws on Samsung’s flagship design heritage and experience.
With additional everyday features, the Galaxy A series is more stylish, practical and convenient than ever before.
“With the release of the Galaxy 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,” said Eugene Nahm, Managing Director of Samsung Electronics Ghana.
“The Galaxy A8+(2018) exemplify our continued dedication to meeting the needs of our consumers by providing them with greater choice and convenience,” he adds.
Snap bright, clear selfies with the 16MP F1.7 rear camera and 16MP+8MP F1.9Dual Front Camera, no matter where you are or what you’re doing. The Dual Front Camera is made up of two separate cameras so you can switch between the two to take the type of selfie you want – from close-ups with the background to portrait shots with a clear and crisp background. And with the advanced Live Focus feature, you can easily adjust the bokeh effect before or after you take the picture to create high-quality images.
From day to night, the advanced camera makes sure you capture sharp images, even in low-light conditions. The new devices also allow you to customize your photos with fun options, from adding stickers to your selfie or highlighting a culinary extravaganza with Food Mode.
Shaky video footage will be a thing of the past with video digital image stabilisation (VDis) technology, and with an added hyper-lapse feature, you can now create time-lapse videos that let you record, tell and share even longer stories.
When watching movies or playing games, the latest Galaxy A devices set a new standard for uninterrupted, immersive viewing experiences. The Infinity Display goes beyond the bezel with an immersive 18.5:9 display ratio1, so that you can view the whole scene across your screen for the ultimate cinematic experience.
The large screen is supported with ergonomically curved glass on the back and front. Its sleek glass and metal frame, smooth curves and comfortable grip make it even easier to watch or interact with content on your phone. The Galaxy A8+(2018) are available in four colours including black, orchid grey, gold and blue to suit your personal style2.
The device will continually keep you informed with the Always On Display, meaning you can get information at a glance without unlocking your phone. With Samsung Pay3, there’s no need to bring your wallet with you every time you go out. Supporting Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) and Near Field Communication (NFC), the Galaxy A8+(2018) can be used virtually anywhere you can tap or swipe your card. Every transaction via Samsung Pay is secure, yet very simple. All it takes is one swipe and one fingerprint scan.
Offering IP68 water and dust resistance, the Galaxy A8+(2018) can withstand the elements, including sweat, rain, sand and dust, making it suitable for nearly any activity or situation.
The Galaxy A8+ (2018) supports microSD cards so you can expand your storage capacity by as much as 400GB, and are the first in the A series to support Samsung’s Gear VR.
