Get in the scene
You'll feel fully immersed in what's on screen thanks to the Infinity Display's 18.5:9 ratio. The biggest display for Galaxy A phones to date, it offers a wide horizontal view, providing a stunning cinematic experience.
See it all at once
The Infinity Display is also longer than the screen on the previous model, so you can read and browse with less scrolling. Whether checking your social media or reading a news article, you'll see more at one time and give your thumbs a rest.
Masterpiece in a snap
Taking stunning photos on the Galaxy A8 is as easy as tapping the shutter. The Dual Front Camera innovates selfies and wefies, putting the focus on you and your friends so you can capture moments in a new way. And with the rear 16MP camera, the surrounding scene will come out bright and clear, too.
Perfect your selfie
Add flair and fun to your selfies with Live focus mode on the Dual Front Camera. It blurs the background, adding bokeh so you and your friends stand out. Afterwards, you can readjust the focus to your taste. And by enabling Beauty effect before taking the photo, selfies and wefies come out stunning.
Focus on the fun
Customise your pictures with exciting stickers and filters. Decorate selfies with stickers using face-recognition technology. Or edit before you shoot with Food mode, Beauty effect, or Filters. And Beauty effect works while taking a video with the front camera, so you can look your best in action.
*Beauty effect can only be applied when using the front camera. **Beauty effect cannot be adjusted during video recording. ***Available filters may vary by user.
Get the shot in any light
Whether out at night or caught in the dark, you'll capture the scene clearly with the improved low-light capability on the Galaxy A8's rear camera. Its bright F1.7 lens, larger 1.12㎛ pixels, and bigger 1/2.8" sensor bring in light from the environment to make photos crisp and detailed.
A smart way to search
Easily find the image you want with the gallery search bar. As you search, the gallery analyses your photos and pulls out relevant pictures, even displaying them by category.
Works even when wet
