- The A8 and A8+ 2018 are IP68 certified, which makes them dust and water-resistant and also they comes with Samsung's characteristic Always-on display. It's good to see Samsung upping the game, and looking to compete with brands. The handsets will be available in three colors in the UK, Black, Gold and Orchid Grey. The handsets will be soon available for purchase in Europe and other markets.

Samsung Galaxy S9 will likely go on sale in March, though the phones will be revealed at CES 2018.
