Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A8 2018

Samsung said the phones will be available in early January, though it's not clear exactly where they'll be available or how much they'll cost. The A7 and A7 Plus, released earlier this year, aren't sold officially through Samsung in the US, but the A7 can be purchased on Amazon for around $350 (AU$510 on Kogan in Australia or £355 on Amazon UK).
