While the Galaxy A5 and A3 got their 2017 variants, A8 missed it. Samsung didn’t released any A8 (2017) this year but it’s not going to repeat it in the coming year. And, this is not just a speculation anymore as we now have a leak confirming Galaxy A8 (2018) existence.
The front panel of the alleged A8 (2018) has been surfaced confirming two important features. First, the display is looking stretched up, featuring thin bezels and the second feature is the dual front camera setup.

Investigating the leaked pictures of front panel further reveals no curved design. A8 released back in 2016 featured 5.7-inch display and was 6.17-inch tall. But the new device in question can feature bigger display in a similar footprint. 5.9-inch, hint?
On the other side, the Galaxy A7 (2018) which is already part of rumour mill is expected to feature similarly positioned dual front cameras. As there isn’t much information available about it, these leaked panel can be of A7 itself, rather than A8.
There is a lot of information passed from the rumour mills regarding these particular models. Samsung might release just two smartphone in 2018, dubbed as A8 and A8 Plus, ditching the A5 and A7 completely. Or, it can name the beefier one as A9.
