General Information
Summary Masterpiece in a snap
Taking stunning photos on the Galaxy A8 is as easy as tapping the shutter. The Dual Front Camera innovates selfies 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 on the Dual Front Camera. It blurs the background, adding bokeh effect so you and your friends stand out. Afterwards, you can readjust the focus to your taste.

Focus on the fun
Customize 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.

Get the shot in any light
Whether out at night or caught in the dark, you’ll capture the scene clearly with the low-light capability on the Galaxy A8 rear camera. Its bright F1.7 lens, large 1.12㎛ pixels, and big 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 analyzes your photos and pulls out relevant pictures, even displaying them by category.

Works even when wet
You want a phone that works, wherever life takes you. The Galaxy A8 has an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance, meaning neither splashes nor rain will slow you down.1

Here to help you
Keep your day on track, set reminders, and get information via your camera with Bixby. Bixby is a virtual assistant that works via text and touch and learns your habits. With Bixby Home, Bixby Vision, and Bixby Reminder*, it integrates seamlessly into not just the Galaxy A8, but also your lifestyle.

Always ready for you
Get informed without waking up your phone. The Always on Display screen is always available and contains important information like date, time, notifications, and even battery level.

The phone that pays
Leave the cards at home—all you need is your Galaxy A8 and Samsung Pay. With Samsung Pay, making everyday purchases is fast, more secure, and convenient. Use your card at most merchant terminals where you can tap, scan or swipe a payment card.*

Safeguard your data
Better protect personal information with the Secure Folder* on the Galaxy A8. It creates a separate space within the device to store sensitive and personal data, making sure it’s only accessible to you.

Convenient Wi-Fi control
Effortlessly conserve mobile data and battery life with adaptive Wi-Fi control on the Galaxy A8. It remembers where you’ve previously connected to Wi-Fi and turns on to instantly connect when you’re in range. And when you leave the service range, Wi-Fi shuts off to keep your battery from draining.*

Swift and simple unlocking
Unlocking is as easy as taking a selfie or scanning your finger. With face recognition* and the fingerprint scanner, accessing your phone is quick and convenient.

Do more and store more
Whether you are multitasking or gaming, the Galaxy A8 makes it fast and seamless with the 4GB RAM. And you can easily keep important things on hand with expandable MicroSD storage—up to an additional 400 GB.*
