Infinity Display

The Infinity Display that gives you
a big workspace

Galaxy Note8's innovative design prominently features the beautifully big 6.3" Infinity Display. Bezels are kept at a minimum to provide a full view and a big working surface for the S Pen. And even though the screen is large, the body is narrow, offering a comfortable grip. From spreadsheets to email to taking notes during a meeting, your Galaxy Note8 is ready.

*Infinity Display: a near bezel-less, full-frontal glass, edge-to-edge screen.
*Screen measured diagonally as a full rectangle without accounting for the rounded corners.
