The Samsung Galaxy S8 is your perfect companion. It has the perfect balance of form, function, art, science, design, and technology. It is our pleasure to introduce an innovation that will change the way you see your smartphone and everything on it. The display forms an unbelievable continuous, smooth surface. This new phone has the highest screen-to-body ratio than ever before. You can barely tell where the screen ends. The result is a beautifully curved and perfectly symmetrical object. The infinity display is brighter and richer to enable you to stream shows and movies on your smartphone.
The "Infinity Display"
One of the Galaxy S8s most interesting features is also one of the most prominent: Samsung's new Infinity Display. That is the fancy name Samsung has given to the curved smartphone that has rounded-off corners. Yes, the shape of the screen is different, but it affects the way the phone will feel in your hand.
You might notice all the images of the Galaxy S8 appear to be of the black phone. That's actually just because the front bezel will be black on all models. In the past, Samsung phones have been the same color on the front and back. So, if you had a silver phone, it was silver on the front and back. The black front panel on this phone is intended to accentuate the look of the Infinity Display and hide the already slim bezels.
The new and more durable battery
The lithium-ion cells in the Galaxy S8 will retain 95% of their capacity after a year of use. That's great, especially considering the batteries are sealed in. If you're the sort who wants to use a phone for years on end until it dies, you can feel more confident in buying a Galaxy S8.
The Better Selfie Camera
Samsung made the biggest changes to the front-facing camera. The selfie camera now captures 8-megapixel photos with a with an f/1.7 lens and also has autofocus capabilities.
It is 2017, and Samsung has finally introduced its own virtual assistant: Bixby. Samsung is positioning it as a virtual assistant that can help you complete your tasks. You can set reminders, search through photo galleries, and cast your phone screen to your Wi-Fi-connected TV, all by pressing a dedicated Bixby button and talking to it. It is also able to identify physical objects in the wild.
Using only your phone to power an entire desktop experience has long been the dream of business people. That is where Samsung DeX comes in. A DeX is a plastic bowl-like stand that has a USB-C prong, a couple of ports, and a fan. It supports the Galaxy S8 and effectively gives you a PC-like mobile desktop on display. Some apps are even optimized for the experience.
3.5MM Headphone Jack
The 3.5mm headphone jack is still one of the most welcome features of the Galaxy S8.
