Introducing the stunning Infinity Display
The revolutionary design of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ begins from the inside out. We rethought every part of the phone's layout to break through the confines of the smartphone screen. So all you see is pure content and a discreet bezel. It's the biggest, most immersive screen on a mobile device of this size. It's also easy to hold in one hand.
The Infinity Display has an incredible end-to-end screen that takes your content to the limits of the phone. As front meets back the glass flows seamlessly into the aluminium shell. The result the most beautifully curved, perfectly symmetrical, singular object.
A camera built for every moment
Capture life as it happens with the Galaxy S8 and S8+ cameras. The front camera has been improved with smart auto focus so you'll be able to take crisp, clear selfies in low light.
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.
Front camera - Selfies done right
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. An enhanced multi-frame image processing also keeps all the selfies crisp and clear.
Rear camera - Capture the night
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.
Ready for action
When you're quick enough to capture the moment, you need a camera that's just as fast and focused-like the Galaxy S8 and S8+ camera. It focuses as swiftly as your eyes do using its Dual Pixel sensor, bright lens, and wide aperture, delivering photos that are crisp and vivid.
Memories, crystal clear
The stars aligned for that picture-perfect moment and with the Galaxy S8 and S8+'s camera, that moment is yours to keep. It uses enhanced image processing, taking multiple shots and combining them into one high-quality photo. All you have to do is press the shutter.
Pro mode - Turn pro
Make full use of the Galaxy S8 and S8+'s superior camera performance by turning on Pro Mode. It gives you the option to adjust any of the six settings: ISO, Shutter speed, Exposure, Colour tone, Manual focus, and WB (White Balance).
Selective focus - Focus on what matters
With Selective focus mode you're able to choose the depth of field after taking the shot to choose whichever focus you fancy: foreground, background, or both.
Food mode - Tasty shots
Make your food photography stand out from the crowd. Food mode brings out the best in your lunch or dessert for mouth-watering shots.
Privacy is important. So we 've increased the protection, while still making it quick & easy to access your content. Unlock your phone quickly with iris scanning and facial recognition. Sleep easy with defense-grade security that stands guard around the clock.
The patterns in your irises are unique to you, meaning iris authentication is one of the safest ways to keep your phone locked and the contents private.
