Most smartphone cameras work best during the day. But your life is 24/7. So we built a pioneering camera that works in daylight and lowlight. The front and rear cameras are finely-tuned so your photos come out bright and clear—even at night when there's very little light.

Front camera

Better looking selfies

Turn on the selfie camera and take photos that everyone will want to share. Smart Auto Focus tracks faces, so whether you use your arm or a selfie stick, everyone in the shot will be in focus. Enhanced multi-frame image processing also keeps all the selfies crisp and clear.

Capture the night

The dark is no match for the rear camera on the Galaxy S8 and S8+. The bright lens and large pixels bring in more light when there's not enough around. So what you see, is what you'll get when you take the shot.
