Coming to imaging, the Galaxy A8s sports a triple rear camera setup - with one 24-megapixel main sensor with f/1.7 aperture, another 10-megapixel telephoto sensor with f/2.4 aperture that can offer 2X optical zoom, and another 5-megapixel sensor with f/2.2 aperture and this one is basically for more depth in photos. The Galaxy A8s is special to Samsung because this is the first phone from the company to the use its own Infinity-O display which was unveiled alongside three other displays at Developers Conference in November.

The phone has a glossy finish as seen on other Samsung phones in the Galaxy A and the Galaxy S series. As of now, there's no information whether or not the phone will come to India.
