Key Features:

  • IP68 water and dust resistance - Galaxy A8(2018) and A8+(2018) can withstand the elements, including sweat, rain, sand and dust, making it suitable for nearly any activity or situation.

  • Infinity Display - The large display and stunning ergonomic design draw on Samsung's flagship design heritage and experience. The Galaxy A series is more stylish, practical and convenient than ever before.

  • Selfie-Focused - Snap bright, clear selfies with the 16MP F/1.7 rear camera and 16MP+8MP F1.9 Dual Front Camera, no matter where you are or what you’re doing. The Dual Front Camera is made up of two separate cameras so you can switch between the two to take the type of selfie you want – from close-ups with the background to portrait shots with a clear and crisp background.

  • Live Focus and other camera features - Easily adjust the bokeh effect before or after you take a picture to create high-quality images. Shaky video footage will be a thing of the past with video digital image stabilisation (VDis) technology, and with an added hyperlapse feature, you can now create time-lapse videos that let you record, tell and share even longer stories.
