Description

Introducing the stunning Infinity display. The revolutionary design of the Galaxy S8 begins from the inside out. Samsung 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 no bezel. It's the biggest, most immersive screen on a Galaxy smartphone of this size. And it's easy to hold in one hand.

Immerse yourself in a bigger view that still fits comfortably in your hand. Galaxy S8 break free from the confines of bezels, offering a smooth, uninterrupted surface that flows seamlessly over the edges. To do this, Samsung completely redesigned the phone from the inside out and also embedded the home button under the screen, where it stays hidden until you need it. So you get a bigger, unobstructed view without a larger phone.

  • Design - boundaries removed

    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.
  • Infinity display - beyond the bezel

    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 feels 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 Galaxy 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.
  • More screen means more is seen

    Be it movies or games, you'll get drawn into the action on the Galaxy S8 screen. 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.
  • 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

    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
