Samsung is trying hard to get into the budget and mid-range segment, for that they have finally made their Galaxy J8 device up for sale in India.

The latest Samsung’s device is priced at Rs. 18,990 in India that you can buy it from various online stores like Flipkart, Amazon, Paytm and on its own official site. There are Black, Blue, and Gold color options for the smartphone available.
So lets quickly jump into to specifications, it runs on latest Android 8.0 Oreo with Samsung Experience out of the box. The dual SIM smartphone packs a 6-inch full-HD+ Super AMOLED ‘Infinity display’ which comes with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio.
