Weeks after its official announcement, Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018) is now apparently set to enter India. The new Samsung Galaxy A series smartphone has been listed on Amazon.in with a “coming soon” tag. The online listing doesn’t confirm the price and availability of the Galaxy A8+ (2018), but it confirms that the handset will go on sale in the country as an Amazon exclusive offering. Last month, Samsung officially divulged that the Galaxy A8+ (2018) will go on sale in Vietnam starting January 6 with a price tag of VND 13,490,000 (approximately Rs. 38,040). The South Korean company will also launch the Galaxy A8 (2018), which is the smaller variant of the Galaxy A8 (2018), in the Vietnamese market at VND 10,990,000 (roughly Rs. 30,980). Meanwhile, another report claims the launch date of the Galaxy A8+ (2018) smartphone in India.
Amazon India has developed a special microsite for the Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018) that highlights some of its key features such as glass and metal design, 18.5:9 ratio-based Infinity Display, and dual front camera setup with live focus support. It is unclear whether the online marketplace will also sell the Galaxy A8 (2018) alongside the Galaxy A8+ (2018). Nevertheless, the latest development suggests that both the new Galaxy A series models would soon debut in India. Samsung originally announced that the handsets will roll out in global markets in early January. Separately, IANS cites industry sources to claim the smartphone will be launched on January 10. We can expect confirmation on this front as we approach that date. IANS also claims that the Galaxy A8 (2018) will not be launched in the country, but only the A8+ (2018) model.
