Galaxy S8 and S8+ Features
- Infinity Display: Available in 5.8-inch (Galaxy S8) and 6.2-inch models (Galaxy S8+), the Infinity Display and near bezel-less design form a smooth, continuous surface without harsh angles. The result is a large display, not a large phone. The compact design enables comfortable one-handed operation and features Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5 on both the front and back.
- Premium Camera: The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ feature Samsung’s most advanced smartphone camera3 for professional-level photos regardless of light, focus or motion. The rear camera features a bright f/1.7 lens and large 1.4 µm pixels to capture more light when there’s not enough around, so you can get amazing shots — even at night. Both devices also feature an enhanced Smart Auto Focus on the front-facing camera that tracks every face in frame so all your shots stay sharp and in focus, even when you’re on the go.
- Robust Entertainment: With all-day battery life on the first-ever Mobile HDR Premium certified smartphone4, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ maximize your view with an expansive Infinity Display stretching from edge to edge.

- Meet Bixby: With Bixby, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners will be able to navigate through select phone apps, services and settings with a combination of voice commands and touch. New voice control with Bixby allows users to do many things they do with touch. Users can ask Bixby to complete simple tasks like turning on the flashlight, taking a screen shot, or taking a selfie. With Bixby, you can also use the camera to identify landmarks, translate foreign languages or shop for products online right from the phone. Bixby will be fully integrated across several core Samsung apps at launch, with plans to continuously expand to support additional languages, features, third-party apps and devices.
- Powerful Performance: Packing powerful performance and connectivity, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ feature the industry’s first 10 nm chip, enabling heightened speed and efficiency.
