The next generation of Samsung Galaxy A devices, presumably the Galaxy A8 2018 and A8+ 2018, will get the Live Focus portrait mode for selfies. For this, the device has a double front camera. There is only one camera on the back.

Samsung confirms the arrival of Live Focus for selfies in the manual for the A530 and A730, the type numbers of the suspected A8 2018 and A8+ 2018. With that function, users can view the background more or less live on the screen or after taking the photo. fade. Samsung introduced Live Focus on the Galaxy Note 8, but on that device it only works on the back.

In addition to Live Focus, the devices have the option to imitate a wide-angle lens thanks to the dual camera and thus to put more people in a photo with the front cameras. To do that, users need to enable that option in the settings. The specs of the sensors on the front are not yet known.

In addition to the camera functions, the manual gives away a lot more about the devices. For example, the Bixby button on the housing is missing, where the S8, S8 + and Note 8 do have it. The digital assistant is included in the software, but can only be reached with swipes. The devices have an FM radio, a USB-C port for charging and a 3.5mm jack for plugging in headsets.

There will be variants with single sim and dual sim. There is also a possibility to expand the storage with a memory card. The manual also states that the devices will probably run on Android 7.1 at release and not on the newer 8.0 or 8.1. The name of Android 7, Nougat, is mentioned in the url. The device has a fingerprint scanner, which is centrally located under the camera.

Samsung announced devices in its Galaxy A series in December or January in recent years. The release of the manual and other recent information indicates that the announcement of the phones will not be long in coming.

The A8 and A8+ would be the successors of the Galaxy A5 and A7 2017. Only the A5 appeared in the Benelux and that happened at the beginning of this year.
