Straight out of the J-series comes the chipset – Samsung’s own Exynos 7870 which we really liked for its power efficiency all the way back when it was introduced with the J7 (2016). Hint, hint – it is a bit old. The base model comes with a pretty adequate 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage, though a higher-specced 4GB/64GB version is also available in some places. There’s a microSD slot too – a dedicated one regardless of SIM count.
The A8 (2018) lends its primary camera – the 16MP f/1.7 shooter replaces the J5 (2017)’s 13MP one. It’s the same thing on the front – 16MP f/1.9 selfie cam is lifted off the A8 (2018), only there it was joined by a secondary 5MP module for depth detection. No such thing here, though, just the 16MP camera. And a flash, there’s a front-facing flash. (GSM Arena).
