Expand your view of what's possible with the Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) SM-A530 32GB Smartphone in gold. The Galaxy A8 literally expands your view with the 5.6" Super AMOLED that features an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Dubbed the "Infinity Display", the screen of the A8 offers a wide horizontal view that is designed to provide a stunning cinematic experience to your mobile entertainment. Vertically, it provides more real estate for browsing social media feeds and articles, so you can read more with less scrolling.
The dual 16MP and 8MP front cameras of the A8 work with the Live Focus mode to add a bokeh effect to your selfies and wefies. The blurred background helps you and your friends stand out, and by having dual cameras, you can re-adjust the focus of the background to your liking. The 16MP rear camera has been given a bright f/1.7 lens, larger 1.12 micron pixels, and a bigger 1/2.8" sensor; which brings in more light to give you improved low-light capabilities.

Focus on the Fun
If there's one thing we snap more than ourselves, it's the food we eat. That's why Samsung created Food Mode, which is specially designed to enhance the food in your photos. An array of image filters are also included, letting you give any photo you take a unique look.
