The Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) series of mobile devices was recently certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance, and the document shows that the upper-midrange handsets ran Android 8.0 Oreo at the time of the interoperability test. What's more, Wi-Fi certification suggests that both the Galaxy A8 (2018) and the Galaxy A8 Plus (2018) are likely to receive the latest version of Google's mobile operating system in the future. However, there is no word as to when users might expect to get hold of the Oreo-powered devices, as Samsung has not yet announced this particular update. Nevertheless, it can be assumed that the Oreo update for both devices is not too far from the rollout, as the Wi-Fi certification indicates that the development of the software update is nearing completion. It's important to remember that the unlocked versions of Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus in the US received the Android 8.0 Oreo update in early April. Therefore, it makes sense only to bring the same big update on the midrange devices The next logical step:
As a reminder: Android 7.1.1 Nougat is preinstalled on the Galaxy A8 (2018) and the Galaxy A8 Plus (2018) when the devices were announced in December of last year with the custom user interface of Samsung on the operating system of Google. The two phones are the very first mid-range handsets of the South Korean tech giants, equipped with the infinity display and give the two devices extremely thin bezels. The Galaxy A8 (2018) also comes with a fingerprint scanner, which, in contrast to the premium counterparts of both devices, is located directly underneath the main camera. As a reminder: The Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) is equipped with a 5.6-inch FullHD + Super AMOLED Infinity display with a resolution of 2220 x 1080 pixels, while the Galaxy A8 Plus (2018) with a 6 Inch FullHD + Super AMOLED Infinity panel with a resolution of 2220 x 1080 is delivered. The Galaxy A8 (2018) has a 3,000 mAh battery that is no longer replaceable, while the Galaxy A8 Plus (2018) has a 3,500 mAh battery (with adaptive charging like its smaller sister model). Samsung's Exynos 7885 14-nm 64-bit octa-core processor powers both phones with two SIM card slots. The Galaxy A8 (2018) also includes 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of internal storage.
