Samsung Galaxy A8+ features a 6-inch sAMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution and 18.5:9 aspect ratio. So we can only hope the Galaxy X offers great hardware and software experiences whenever it finally launches, and regardless of whether or not Google adapts Android for foldable screens.
GBH Insights' Ives said Samsung's decision to delay the phone is a "smart move".
The device is water and dust resistance certified by IP68 ratings. As for the connectivity, the phone has two Nano SIM card slots, and there is 4G with VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, and USB Type-C 2.0 port.
Samsung has integrated an interesting camera setup on Galaxy A8+.
Dimensions: The Smartphone measures 159.9×75.7×8.3mm and weighs 191 grams. The smartphones are reportedly receiving stereo speakers and retaining the 3.5 mm jack. There is a fingerprint sensor below the rear camera which is used to unlock the phone. The cases showed the two versions of the phone, with little changes to last year's release.
There's good amount of firepower under the hood. The announcement was reportedly made at the CES event, where Samsung has already unveiled some of its upcoming products.
For imaging this phone is mounted with 16MP and 8MP front cameras with f/1.9 aperture for taking close-ups with the background blurred to portrait shots with a clear and crisp background.
The Galaxy S9 is also expected to include Samsung's Exynos 9810 chip, which could bring features similar to Apple's Face ID and Animoji on the iPhone X. Other reports suggest Samsung may increase the amount of internal storage in the S9.
So Samsung's belief that their future foldable smartphone will allow them to dominate the market in the long run, is just marketing hyperbole. The UI worked smoothly in our brief duration with the smartphone. It will not be released in 2018.
Samsung has delivered a worthy contender in the upper mid-range flagship category.
