The imaging aspects of the device comprise of a 16MP rear camera sensor with a wider f/1.7 aperture and digital image stabilization and dual selfie cameras comprising of 16MP and 8MP sensors with f/1.9 aperture and support for Live Focus for the bokeh mode. But from the look of things, there are a good number of similarities with what has leaked before.

We're sure there'll be plenty of phones to get excited about in 2018, we can only hope it's a slow year for let-downs.

Other specifications on the handset include a single 16 megapixel rear camera and dual front cameras. Samsung previously announced that the A8 would be launching in Vietnam on January 6, and now the phone is officially available for pre-order in South Korea.

Samsung might be looking at free or discounted distribution for Dex Pad with Galaxy S9 like they did for Dex past year. The smartphone could be very attractive to those upgrading from a much older Samsung model, such at the Galaxy S7. Another slight change is that the heart rate sensor has been moved to right side of the camera module.

As for the specs, Samsung's 2018 flagships will pack Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 845 chipsets for USA and European markets.

According to the usual timeline of Google, we can expect the third generation of Pixel smartphone to land in October 2018 and give the iPhone X (2018) run for its money.

Internally, the Galaxy S9 will ship with a Snapdragon 845 SoC mated with 4GB RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. What's more, is without a doubt going to be an intense demonstration to take after.

The absence of a unique mark sensor is the greatest downside in the iPhone X. Reports assert that Apple dumped the TouchID sensor in the iPhone X after they neglected to implant it underneath the show.

Industry sources informed South Korean media outlet The Investor on Tuesday that Samsung Electronics is playing it safe this year by keeping its sales goal for its Galaxy-branded smartphones at the same level as last year.
