Whether your taste is bold or classic, you can take your pick of stylish colours on the Galaxy A8+. And with the smooth curves creating a comfortable, ergonomic grip, it†s a beautiful phone you won†t want to put down.

Get in the scene
You†ll feel fully immersed in whats 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.

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, youll see more at one time and give your thumbs a rest.

Masterpiece in a snap
Taking stunning photos on the Galaxy 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.

Focus on the fun
Customise 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.

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+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 analyses your photos and pulls out relevant pictures, even displaying them by category.

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

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+, but also your lifestyle.

The phone that pays
Leave the cards at home—all you need is your Galaxy 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.

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 favourite messenger apps—and its simple to install the second instance from the Home screen.

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

Convenient Wi-Fi control
Effortlessly conserve mobile data and battery life with adaptive Wi-Fi control on the Galaxy A8+. It remembers where youve 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.

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.

Do more and store more
