Samsung Galaxy J8 – Is this the J Series phone we deserve?
Samsung Galaxy J8 – Could this be another rebrand-ed J Series phone?
Samsung has been chasing the rabbit for so long! Whether we talk about the J or On Series, they have countless times introduced a sub 10,000 rupee smartphone but have failed to amaze the audience. Whereas Xiaomi, Honor, and several other young mobile manufacturers have converted their audience into their user base. With Samsung Galaxy J8, the South Korean brand is trying their hands at the mid-range again.
Will this time Samsung succeed? We find out in this article below.
What would be distinctive on the new Samsung Galaxy J8 when compared to other J Series phones?
> User Experience: The upcoming Samsung mobile is said to come with Android 8.0 Oreo-based user interface. If you’re are not aware of the fact, the Android Oreo is the latest stable Android OS out there on the market. And with less than 2% penetration rate, this operating system is available only on a handful of mobiles.
What should you not be concerned about on the Samsung Galaxy J8 specifications?
> Design: Expect minor design improvements on the upcoming Samsung mobile. When it comes to the entry or mid-segment, the brand is not quite enthusiastic about design improvements.
> Display: Samsung is no doubt the best display provider in the industry! But when it comes to improvements in the sub 10,000 segment, it feels Samsung doesn’t care as much as they should.
> Performance: By utilizing their in-house processors, they have always optimized the processor for decent performance in terms of multitasking and gaming. But looking at the current generation of smartphones, it just doesn’t cut it anymore.
> Camera: They are considered to be the best in the industry when it comes to camera package on the high-end models. But unfortunately, they don’t give enough attention to their sub 10,000 priced smartphones.
> Battery: Expect an average battery life out of this device. Looking at the current track of the Samsung Galaxy J Series phones, they sport battery capacity as large as 3300 mAh, which is not competitive compared to the 5000 mAh in this price range.
Should you wait for the Samsung Galaxy J8 release date in India?
Unless you’re a loyal Samsung mobile user who is due for an upgrade, we would suggest going with alternatives in this price range. For instance, Xiaomi Redmi 5, and Infinix Hot S3 are the trending handsets in the sub 10,000 price range. If somehow you’re convinced that Samsung Galaxy J8 would be an amazing handset, then, we believe the Samsung Galaxy J8 price in India would make you believe that it isn’t. We expect it to be priced around Rs 14,990, which would be a steep pricing.
