Samsung has quietly launched the Galaxy C8 smartphone with dual rear cameras and facial recognition feature in China.

The Galaxy C8 has been launched in two configurations, i.e. 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage and 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage by the company.

In terms of features, the dual camera setup on the Samsung Galaxy C8 offers ‘Dual Photo’ mode that allows users to adjust the focus even after clicking the images. The smartphone offers facial recognition technology that allows users to unlock their handset using just their face. Notably, the smartphone comes with an always-on display as well.

Moving on to the specifications, the dual-SIM Samsung Galaxy C8 sports a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) Super AMOLED display. The new Samsung smartphone is powered by an unspecified octa-core processor (with 4 cores clocked at 1.69GHz and the other 4 clocked at 2.39GHz). As mentioned earlier, the handset is being offered in two memory variants with either 3GB or 4GB of RAM. The storage on both variants is further expandable, via microSD card (up to 256GB), in a hybrid dual-SIM configuration.

In terms of optics, the rear dual camera setup on the Galaxy C8 comes with a primary 13-megapixel sensor with an f/1.7 aperture and a secondary 5-megapixel sensor with an f/1.9 aperture. At front, the handset features a 16-megapixel sensor with an f/1.9 aperture to take selfies.

The Galaxy C8 houses a 3000mAh battery and comes with fingerprint scanner embedded in the Home button at front of the smartphone.
