Samsung Galaxy J8 Brings Infinity Display & Dual Cameras At Midrange Price

Samsung is bringing some much-needed additions to its J-series, and the chief among them is the new J8. It gets most of the “current” features with dual cameras and an 18:9 display.

Design and Display

The design is the main reason why the Galaxy J8 stands out from its younger siblings. It has an Infinity Display at the front, with a polycarbonate unibody build all round.

The display itself is a large 6” Super AMOLED panel, however, only with HD+ resolution, rather than the norm FHD+ with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio.

Internals and Storage

Under the hood, you get the octa-core Snapdragon 450 processor, with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of storage, which is also expandable via a dedicated microSD card slot. It runs on Android 8.0 Oreo and is dual SIM by default.


The back features a dual-lens setup, with 16 and 5 MP cameras, which should presumably allow bokeh effect and portrait mode.

The photography focus continues on the front with a 16 MP shooter with its own LED Flash.


Battery capacity is set at 3500 mAh. With the efficient Snapdragon 450, it should form a good combination and should get you through at least a couple of days of use. Unfortunately there is no fast charging so you’ll be stuck charging this phone for at least a couple of hours.

The phone costs Rs. 32,000 in India (converted from INR).

  • No matter what Samsung do, they won’t compete in midrange or low end market.

    Their pricing scheme seems to be very amusing. Every new crap phone they have, prices are insane. Competitors are far ahead in both quality and price to performance ratio.
