Samsung launched the Galaxy J6 and Galaxy J8 smartphones in the ‘J Series’ in India  last month. At that time the company said that the Galaxy J8 will be available from July. Today the company has announced that the phone will be available from tomorrow, few days earlier.

There is a 16-megapixel camera on the front with f/1.9 aperture, LED flash and face unlock.

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.

It comes with “Chat Over Video” feature which facilitates an uninterrupted and uncompromised video viewing experience while chatting, hence eliminating the need to compromise between video viewing or chatting.
