Samsung Launches Galaxy On8 with Large Infinity Display and Dual Camera
Samsung India launched the all new Galaxy On8 today. The new smartphone from Samsung is an online exclusive available on e-commerce platform, Flipkart and on Samsung Online Shop (shop.samsung.com/in).
Galaxy On8 packs a larger 6 inches Super AMOLED Infinity Display and industry-first dual camera features. 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.
Galaxy On8 will be launched at a special introductory price of INR 16,990 along with exciting offers like No Cost EMI, Special Data Offers & more, and will be available from August 6, 2018 onwards exclusively on Flipkart and Samsung Online Shop (shop.samsung.com/in).
The all new Galaxy On8 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.
“At Samsung, our constant endeavour is to bring meaningful innovation in our products and services that can truly add value to the lives of our consumers. Galaxy On8 sports Samsung’s signature Infinity Display and is a stunning device with state-of-the-art hardware and software features. With Galaxy On8, we have emphasized more on the camera, which is one of the most used features by millennials today,” said Sandeep Singh Arora, Vice President, Online Business, Samsung India.
Galaxy On8 sports Samsung’s signature Infinity display experience, which comes with an 18.5:9 Infinity display providing nearly 15% more display area without increasing the overall size of the device. The infinity display experience is further enhanced by Samsung’s ‘Make for India’ “Chat Over Video” feature which allows an uninterrupted and uncompromised video viewing experience while chatting, hence eliminating the need to compromise between video viewing or chatting. The transparent keyboard allows the user to continue watching the video while enjoying the video content.
