Focus on what matters

Add flair and fun to your selfies with Live Focus mode on the dual front camera. It blurs the background so you and your friends stand out.

Low-light camera

Whether out at night or caught in the dark, you can capture the scene clearly with the brilliant low-light capability on the A8.

Water and dust resistance

You want a phone that works wherever life takes you. The Galaxy A8 has an IP68* rating for water and dust resistance, so splashes, building sites or rain won’t slow you down.

*IP68 water resistant up to 1.5 metres from up to 30 minutes. Rinse in fresh water afterwards.

How Anytime Upgrade Flex works

  • You have two contracts – one for your phone and one for your usage
  • Your monthly payments depend on how long your phone contract is. Choose 12, 18, 24, 30 or 36 months (the maximum contract length for usage is 24 months)
  • Realised you don’t need all that data? Simple. You can move your tariff down
  • You can upgrade whenever you want – just pay off your current phone
  • Plus, you’ll pay less each month once you’ve paid off your phone as you just pay for your usage

Great for you, great for your pocket. Little things can make a big difference
