Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018) looks gorgeous in these leaked live pictures

There have been rumors running around that suggest Samsung plans to completely overhaul the design of its Galaxy A series. One of the major changes that will affect most of the devices in the new 2018 Galaxy A lineup is the removal of the home button.

At the same time, they will benefit from the beautiful Infinity Display, which is meant to make them more appealing to those looking for a mid- to high-end smartphone. The bezel-less design and the removal of the home button will also bring the Galaxy A series closer to Samsung's Galaxy S flagships when it comes to the aspect.

One of the phones we know Samsung plans to unveil very soon is the Galaxy A7 (2018). A couple of pictures of the device, also known as Samsung SM-730, have just appeared on Weibo, the Chinese main social network.

The leaked live pictures show a rather great-looking phone that, apparently, won't be launched on the market as Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) as we previously expected. One of the pictures reveals that the name of the phone is, in fact, Galaxy A8+ (2018), which makes us believe that there will be a regular Galaxy A8 (2018) as well.

The Infinity Display seems to be there although we can't confirm the aspect ratio. Still, word is most of Galaxy A series phones to be launched next year will pack 18:9 displays, unlike Samsung's flagships that boast 18.5:9 screens.

Sadly, there are no pictures of the back of the phone, so we can't see whether or not Samsung will use a dual-camera setup on the Galaxy A8+ (2018). These new phones are expected to be unveiled within a month or two, so we'll probably have more details about them until then.

Not a fan of rounded edged phones. LG has got it right with The G6 and Q6.

Wow. The A8 2018 is literally like a S8 lite. I love it.

Really hate that kind of screen protector. Btw, is that dual front-camera?

Looks like it may be tempered glass. What's your beef with that kind of screen protector?

Its not edge to edge. I want one thats curved and goes all the way to the edges. Just look at the sides, barely covers the screen. Makes the side of the screen distorted.

I can't be the only one that's less concerned with dual rear cameras on the A-series and more curious about the fingerprint scanner placement.

The current a series camera is good ( could be better ) but the main problem is the lack of ois if they add it it will be one one if the very best cameras in a midranger

One plus 5T aren’t a mid range phone, but comes with mid range price.

last A8 (2016 one) was high-end, it used same soc as galaxy s6, maybe they will use s8 soc in this?

Let's see if this time they put the optical image stabilizer. A tremendous disregard for line 2017 (A and J), was the withdrawal of the IOS, which had on line 2016
