Samsung has just revealed the two new mid-range smartphones and they have really nice features and specs.
Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8 Plus differ in size, but they have many great things in common, including thin bezels. It seems that the South Korean giant is reshaping phone design by making bezels as thin as possible or just removing them.
