Product Description

Samsung A8 5.6" sAMOLED 32GB Android Smartphone - Black

Infinity Display

Expand your view

Enjoy an expansive view on the Galaxy A8 and A8+ with the Infinity Display. It's a beautiful, large display that extends from side to side for an expanded screen that you'll love to see.

Design & colors

Let your style show

Whether your taste is bold or classic, you can take your pick of stylish colors* on the Galaxy A8 and A8+. And with the smooth curves creating a comfortable, ergonomic grip, it's a beautiful phone you won't want to put down.

Cinematic experience

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.

Screen

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.

Camera

Masterpiece in a snap

Taking stunning photos on the Galaxy A8 and 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.

Live Focus

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.

Filter & effect

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. And Beauty effect works while taking a video with the front camera, so you can look your best in action.

Low light camera

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 and 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.

Gallery

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.

IP68

Works even when wet

You want a phone that works wherever life takes you. The Galaxy A8 and A8+ have an IP68 rating* for water and dust resistance, meaning neither splashes nor rain will slow you down**.

*The Galaxy A8 and A8+ are rated IP68, meaning it is protected against dust ingress and is water resistant. Water resistance rating is based on test conditions of submersion in up to 1.5 meters of fresh water for up to 30 minutes. To prolong the life of your device rinse it with clean water after submersion or spillage and dry with a microfiber cloth.
**The Galaxy A8 and A8+'s IP68 rating does not protect against heavy rain and significant splashes.

Bixby

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 and A8+, but also your lifestyle.

*Bixby is only available in certain countries, with certain devices, features, and languages.

Always On Display

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.

Samsung Pay

The phone that pays

Leave the cards at home-all you need is your Galaxy A8 or A8+ and Samsung Pay. With Samsung Pay, you can check out virtually anywhere you would use your credit card in a simple and secure way.*

*Samsung Pay is only available in certain countries, with certain devices, features, card issuers, and merchants.

Dual Messenger

Separate work and home chatting

Divide your work messages and personal chats with ease. With Dual Messenger, you can now connect to two different chat accounts on your favorite messenger apps*-and it's simple to install the second instance from the Home screen.

*Messenger apps supported by Dual Messenger may vary by country and region.

Secure Folder

Safeguard your data

Protect personal information with the Secure Folder* on the Galaxy A8 and A8+. It creates a separate space within the device** to store sensitive and personal data and make sure it's only accessible to you.

*The availability of this service will vary according to the nature of the content being encrypted.
**Secure Folder separates storage at the software level without taking up additional space.

Adaptive Wi-Fi

Convenient Wi-Fi control

Effortlessly conserve mobile data and battery life with adaptive Wi-Fi control on the Galaxy A8 and 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.*

*Wi-Fi connection and speed may vary depending on the usage environment.

Biometric authentication

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.

*Face recognition is less secure than pattern, PIN, or password. **Screen image simulated for illustrative purposes.

Memory

Do more and store more

Whether multitasking or gaming, it's fast and seamless with the 4GB RAM* on the Galaxy A8 and A8+. And you can easily keep important things on hand with expandable microSD storage-up to an additional 400GB. And if you travel a lot or have two separate numbers, you also have the option to use Dual SIM.**

*Available RAM and storage specifications may vary by country and region. **Availability of dual SIM may vary by country and/or carrier.
***MicroSD card sold separately.
