The Black Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018) SM-A730F/DS 64GB Smartphone expands your view with the 6″ Super AMOLED that features an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Dubbed the “Infinity Display”, the screen of the A8+ offers a wide horizontal view that is designed to provide a stunning cinematic experience to your mobile entertainment. Vertically, it provides more real estate for browsing social media feeds and articles, so you can read more with less scrolling.
The dual 16MP and 8MP front cameras of the A8+ work with the Live Focus mode to add a bokeh effect to your selfies. The blurred background helps you and your friends stand out, and by having dual cameras, you can re-adjust the focus of the background to your liking.
The 16MP rear camera has been given a bright f/1.7 lens, larger 1.12 micron pixels, and a bigger 1/2.8″ sensor; which brings in more light to give you improved low-light capabilities.
Running the Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system, this phone is powered by a 1.6/2.2 GHz Octa-Core processor (2 x 2.2 GHz Cortex-A73, 6 x 1.6 GHz Cortex-A53) and 4GB of RAM. You can store your apps and snaps on 64GB of built-in storage, which can be expanded via an (optional) microSD card up to 256GB in size.
This phone is unlocked and compatible with 4G LTE networks. If you travel a lot or have a separate work number, you can take advantage of the Dual SIM slots to access both accounts. Connect to the internet and other devices with built-in 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0.
The Galaxy A8+ also supports NFC technology for making phone-to-phone data transfers, or mobile payments via Samsung Pay.
