It is Samsung’s first ever phone with a dual front camera configuration and that clearly points out that the Galaxy A8 family is a series of selfie-centric phones. The dual front camera has 16MP + 8MP sensor with bright f/1.9 aperture lens. Each of the lenses has a different focal length for capturing different photo angles – 16MP standard angle selfie and 8MP ultra-wide angle wefie.

The advanced Live Focus feature first introduced in Samsung Galaxy Note8 is also present here for artificial bokeh effect. The standard rear 16MP f/1.7 camera is great for low light and capturing sharp images.
