Samsung Galaxy S8

Design

The Infinity Display has an incredible end-to-end screen that spills over the phone’s sides, forming a completely smooth, continuous surface with no bumps or angles. It’s pure, pristine, uninterrupted glass. And it takes up the entire front of the phone, flowing seamlessly into the aluminum shell. The result is a beautifully curved, perfectly symmetrical, singular object.

 

Camera

Capture life as it happens with the Galaxy S8 and S8+ cameras. The 12MP rear camera and the 8MP front camera are so accurate and fast that you won't miss a moment, day or night.

 

Security

Prying eyes are not a problem when you have iris scanning on the Galaxy S8 and S8+. No two irises have the same pattern, not even yours, and they're nearly impossible to replicate. That means with iris scanning, your phone and its contents open to your eyes only. And when you need to unlock really fast, face recognition is a handy option.

 

Performance

You never really stop using your phone. That's why Galaxy S8 and S8+ are driven by the world's first 10nm processor. It's fast and powerful and increases battery efficiency. Plus, there's the ability to expand storage, and to work through rain and dust with IP68-rated performance.

 

Intelligence

Bixby completely changes the way you interact with your phone. It's a personal assistant that understands talk, text, and taps so you're never confined to one mode of communication. It also completely changes the way you search. You don't even have to ask, just show Bixby what you want by opening your camera app. It's so incredibly easy.

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are designed to be more than just smartphones. They're designed to change how you capture and view your life, whether it's in 360 degrees or in virtual reality.

Accessories

Keep your Galaxy S8 or S8+ powered and show off your style with this carefully selected collection of accessories.

Infinity Display

The Infinity Display sets a new standard for uninterrupted, immersive experiences. It enables an expanded screen size without necessitating a larger phone. So while the view is grander, Galaxy S8 and S8+ feel small in your hand, making them easy to hold and use.

 

The big screen that feels small

You'll immediately notice the comfortable grip of the smooth curves, which allow you to hold on easily while you watch movies on the larger screen. And important shortcuts are a swipe away, as the edge screen is available on both the Galaxy S8 and S8+.

 

Sleek all around

Complementing the uniform front is the equally smooth silhouette on the back. The rear camera sits perfectly flush with the surface for a visually tranquil profile.

 

Take your pick

With several color options in two sizes, there's a Galaxy S8 or S8+ for everyone. Go big or standard, go gold or silver - the choice is entirely yours.

 

More screen means more is seen

Be it movies or games, you'll get drawn into the action on the Galaxy S8 and S8+ screens. Not only are they the biggest, most immersive displays for mobile devices of these sizes, with the 18.5:9 display ratio, you get the whole scene on your screen.

• Galaxy S8 570 ppi 5.8"

• Galaxy S8+ 529 ppi 6.2"

 

* Infinity Display: a bezel-less, full-frontal, edge-to-edge screen.

Scroll less, do more

Text while you watch a movie or make a list while you browse. You're able to multitask efficiently due to the bigger screen, and you can choose what your focus is by easily resizing the windows. And when just one thing has your attention, you'll see more of the article or your social media feed, so you scroll less.

 

Invisible but accessible

The new navigation keys are no different from the physical ones you're used to. Only they're now beautifully inconspicuous—until you need them. The home key is where it normally is, and it works just as usual with a simple press.

 

Styled for the future

Camera

Most smartphone cameras work best during the day. But your life is 24/7. So we built a camera that works day and night, and we made it even better for the Galaxy S8 and S8+. The front and rear cameras are so fine-tuned that your photos come out bright and clear—even when there's very little light.

Rear Camera

The dark is no match for Galaxy S8 and S8+'s rear camera. The bright F1.7 lens and large 1.4µm pixels bring in more light when there's not enough around. So what you see is what you'll get in the shot.

The rear camera sits flush with the back for a seriously smooth profile.

Security

We care deeply about your privacy. So we put in place effective mechanisms that prevent unwanted snooping, while making it surprisingly convenient for you. There's iris scanning for airtight security, face recognition for unlocking your phone right away, and defense-grade security that stands guard around the clock.

 

Iris scan

The patterns in your irises are unique to you and are virtually impossible to replicate, meaning iris authentication is one of the safest ways to keep your phone locked and the contents private.

• Face recognition

Convenient and safe

Some of the most sensitive activities like paying with your credit or debit card and accessing bank accounts is fast, easy, and secure on your DREAM with biometric authentication. Scan your irises or fingerprint to make purchases with Samsung Pay in-store, check your bank accounts via Samsung Pass and log into your favorite sites right away with the Web sign-in feature. Keep private files and apps separately in the Secure Folder to keep them accessible only to you.

 

Defense-grade security from the chip up

Samsung Knox is seriously secure and has been approved by governments worldwide. Its level of security begins at the chip level. Something only we can do as chipmakers. Building on the chip-level security are five crucial layers of protection that work at hardware and software levels. On the Galaxy S8 and S8+, the upgraded Knox 2.8 is in position to safeguard your data around the clock.
