Samsung Galaxy J8 is the bigger brother of the J series that was launched recently by Samsung. The Galaxy J8 comes with enhanced and improved features compared to the J6. Apart from being bezel-less, it now comes with a dual rear camera.
Internally, there are a few changes as well. The screen has been expanded further by 0.4-inches, a Snapdragon chip and faster octa-core processor. There’s also a bigger battery capacity, clearer selfie camera and a single variant of 64GB storage and 4GB RAM. Want to know more? Stay with me.

The design is quite the same with the J6, it sports the Plastic back with an aluminium frame. The dual shooters at the rear add to the beauty of the device, they are vertical at the top middle.
Then the fingerprint scanner comes underneath, giving you quick access to the device. While the LED flash sits beside the dual shooters and ready for night shoots. It supports dual nano SIMs and available in Black, Gold and Blue colours.
The screen still dishes out the same 18.5:9 aspect ratio just like the J6, but only taller. Additionally, the J8 gives you a much taller display and I thought the J8 would come with a notch, but it Samsung isn’t digging the trend.
The bigger 6-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen will be perfect for big screen lovers. But it still has the same features on the J6, there’s a resolution of 720 x 1480 pixels and 294 pixels per inch density as well.
