The Samsung Galaxy J8 is a new and improved model of the Korean tech giant’s mid-range smartphones. The smartphone boasts innovative and convenient features you didn’t even know you needed.


The company took it up a notch with the design of this smartphone offering a new and improved slim and sleek design. Everything about this smartphone is designed to make your life a little easier. The smartphone’s new design consists of a 6.0” edge-to-edge HD+ screen to allow for a truly immersive experience when viewing high-resolution content like videos and games. The J8 comes in three cool colours: Black, Lavender and Purple. 

The Galaxy J8’s 18.5:9 aspect ratio is designed to make sure that texting and internet browsing become far more efficient. It's wide enough to comfortably split your screen and use two apps at once. 


For most of us, the camera is an essential feature of our phones. Fortunately, the J8's camera really holds up to spec scrutiny. On the back, you get dual cameras, 16MP+5MP that specialise in low-light situations and allow for a blurred background that makes subjects really stand out. You also get a 16MP selfie cam - a really nice feature in a mid-range phone - and it comes with a three-level LED flash that means brighter pics with fewer shadows. 

The camera also comes with some fun extras, like a range of filters to alter your photo's mood, and cute stickers and stamps to personalise your messages. You can also organise your pics into stories that are easy to share with friends. 


Samsung is known for its tight security, and this phone is no exception. The smartphone’s fingerprint scanning and facial recognition authentication features provides seamless mobile access that's a whole lot easier than entering passwords or patterns. 


With 32GB of internal memory and 256GB of expandable storage with microSD support, the device is powered to ensure that you never have to worry about your storage space running out.
