It’s (almost) official: the much-rumored Galaxy A7 (2018) will be called the Galaxy A8+ (2018) when it hits the shelves, according to a document spotted on the Bluetooth Special Interest Group’s (Bluetooth SIG) online database.

This news comes less than 24-hours after a separate document revealed that the Galaxy A5 (2018) will be branded the Galaxy A8 (2018) when it’s official, seemingly corroborating our theory that Samsung’s unifying its model names.

All signs point towards the Galaxy A8+ (2018), like the Galaxy A8 (2018), shipping with an Infinity Display, an Exynos 7785 processor, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable internal storage. It should also ship running Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

As you’re probably well aware by now, the Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018) were certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance and Federal Communications Commission last month, suggesting that they’ll hit the shelves before the year’s out.

Galaxy A8 (2018) to launch before Christmas Day

We’re still waiting on an official release date, however—but we expect it to be set ahead of Christmas Day. While we seek confirmation, be sure to let us know whether you’re happy with the firm’s decision to unify its model names in the comments.
