An 8 MegaPixel (8MP) camera means that the camera contains 8 million pixels through which one can take high resolution images. For regular cameras, the front camera is self-explanatory as it is located on the front of the camera, which allows for taking photos facing forward. For tablets however, the front camera is located on the same side of the tablet display and has the lens facing the user. This enables the user to take selfies and conduct video chats such as FaceTime. Keep in mind that the quality of the tablet front camera is not as sharp as the rear camera because the front camera contains lower specifications in terms of lens quality and camera sensor quality. That is why the rear camera is meant for taking pictures, whereas the front camera is meant for video calls and selfies.
