Samsung launches Galaxy A8

As a Samsung user, I was quite excited to be at the unveiling of the stylish Galaxy A8 which is embodied by Juliana Evans, Malaysia’s own Galaxy A8 celebrity ambassador. Featuring the slimmest full metal body, while providing powerful performance, the Galaxy A8 includes Samsung’s most advanced camera functionalities. A  beautifully crafted device, it features the 5.7” Full HD Super AMOLED display and just 2.5mm super narrow bezel to provide a better viewing experience.


Some of the camera functionalities in Galaxy A8 that I loved includes:

  • High resolution 5MP front and 16MP rear cameras both with a f1.9 aperture and HDR functionality to take extremely clear and bright pictures, even in low light conditions.
  • Quick Launch, Galaxy A8 users can just double click the home button to directly access and launch the camera.
  • Smart Selfie functionalities – Wide Selfie Mode for capturing group selfies and in Rear Camera Selfie Mode* is able to utilize the Face Detecting Selfie Alarm to capture the perfect high resolution selfie. (*Rear Camera Selfie Mode is downloadable from Galaxy Apps.)

Apart from that, Galaxy A8 has a long lasting usage capacity of 3,050 mAh battery and also offers other benefits such as theme service, fingerprint scanner and smart manager. It’s available in Gold, White and Black colour options at the recommended retail price of RM1,888 (inclusive of 6% GST).
