Samsung to Consolidate Smartphone Leadership: Announces Galaxy J8 with 6” Super AMOLED Infinity Display

By Tricitynews
Chandigarh 03rd July:- Samsung, India’s leading smartphones brand, today announced the availability of Samsung Galaxy J8 in India. Galaxy J8, which is a part of the new Infinity series of models from Samsung, was announced last month along with Galaxy J6. Galaxy J8, which packs a larger 6” Super AMOLED Infinity Display and industry-first dual camera innovations, is poised to further strengthen Samsung’s leadership in the affordable smartphone segment. 
Samsung is committed to offering the latest features and technology based on deep consumer insights that millennials are increasingly editing photos before sharing them on social media. To this end, the advanced dual rear camera on Galaxy J8 delivers a unique camera experience. These features are powered by artificial intelligence that allows users to experiment with the foreground and background of an image, thereby delivering professional grade photographs. The dual camera delivers Samsung’s flagship ‘Live Focus’ feature where users can bring sharp focus to the foreground while blurring out the background. Users can adjust the level of background blur both before and after clicking a shot.
In order to deliver images that stand out on social media, Galaxy J8 comes with three new powerful dual camera features – Background Blur Shape, Portrait Dolly, and Portrait Backdrop. With Background Blur Shape, you can make the pictures talk by adding soft light effect in different contextual shapes. The Portrait Dolly feature delivers a moving GIF image with zoom movements in the background for a cinematic photography experience. The portrait backdrop mode gives a professional touch to photography by creating cool and funky backgrounds effects.
Galaxy J8 comes with Samsung’s signature Infinity display experience which transcends beyond hardware. It comes with an 18.5:9 Infinity display which provides nearly 15% more display area without increasing the overall size of the device. Samsung is the only brand to offer an Infinity Display powered by Super AMOLED technology which produces a rich viewing experience owing to best in class contrast ratio and superior color reproduction. To further enhance the infinity experience the physical home button has been swapped with software powered in-display home button and the fingerprint sensor has been placed on the back below the dual camera set up.
Sumit Walia, Director, Mobile Business, Samsung India, said that  at Samsung, our constant endeavour is to bring meaningful innovation in our products and services that can truly add value to the lives of consumers. Our signature Infinity display, Chat Over Video and Samsung Mall are already a hit amongst millennials and with Galaxy J8, we have focused more on the camera, which is one of the most used features for the millennial today. Two of the top three apps downloaded in India are photo editing apps. With the Galaxy J8, consumers can customize their images without any third party app and we are confident that they will love the flagship Live Focus feature and industry-first features like Portrait Dolly, Portrait Backdrop, and Background Blue shape.
