Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) manual confirms device's layout, audio jack and 18:9 display


Before Samsung unveils its new flagship, the Galaxy S9, there are a couple of other smartphones the South Korean company will bring to the market – the 2018 Galaxy A series.

Despite their names, there's a high chance that Samsung will launch both the Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ (2018) by the end of the year. Rumor has it that there will be no other Galaxy A series smartphones announced this year besides the two we've mentioned.

Samsung has just uploaded online the manual for the unannounced Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ (2018) smartphones, also known as Samsung SM-A530 and SM-A730, which supports the rumors that the phones will be released on the market by the end of December.

We already know what the Galaxy A8+ (2018) looks like thanks to a hands-on video recently published on YouTube, but the manual confirms both smartphones will come with 18:9 displays and dual-cameras in the front.

Since the manual seems to be for both devices, we can safely assume their layout will be similar, so the only differences between the two might be the hardware inside and perhaps the size of the display.

Also, we've also learned that both phones will come in single and dual-SIM variants and that they will include audio jack ports besides the usual USB Type-C. Check out the images we've attached to discover more about the phones or download the PDF at the source link.
