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.
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.
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.
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.
