Officially launched last July, the Samsung Galaxy J8 joins the ranks of Galaxy-branded smartphones the Korean tech giant has released in the Philippines. Built to compete in the midrange category, the J8 is feature-packed and you might even notice a few notable staples from Samsung’s usual specs.

First up, here are the specs:

6,0-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display
720 x 1480 pixels, 18.5:9 ratio (~274 ppi density)
Qualcomm SDM450 Snapdragon 450 chipset
Octa-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU
Adreno 506 GPU
64 GB, 4 GB RAM
Android 8.0 (Oreo)
microSD, up to 256 GB
16 MP, f/1.7, AF + 5 MP, f/1.9, depth sensor rear cameras
16 MP, f/1.9 front camera
Non-removable Li-Ion 3500 mAh battery

The first thing to notice is that it’s not a small phone. It has a 6-inch display that boasts Samsung’s trademark Super AMOLED display, which makes colors really pop, one of the features we really like about the brand. A few years ago, Samsung reserved their Super AMOLEDs for their flagship phones, and it’s great to see them adapting this feature to more affordable products.

A Snapdragon 450 chipset houses the Octa-core Cortex A53 CPU and a respectable Adreno 506 GPU. The handset runs on 4GB RAM, and has a stock storage capacity of 64GB. These combine to give you a decent, if not great, gaming experience. Paired with the 3,500mAh battery, you’re sure to have a few games in during your long commute home, or enough for a handful of episodes of your favorite Netflix show.

Since this is a midrange device, Samsung put in the effort to cater to mobile photography enthusiasts by putting in rear cameras of different apertures (16MP, f/1.7 + 5MP, f/1.9) with the Live Focus feature to give you a quick and easy way to get bokeh-effect shots. The 16MP camera is also great for capturing low light shots.

The Samsung Galaxy J8 is now available at all Samsung dealerships nationwide. For a list of their partner stores, visit their Facebook page or their website.
