360° and VR
The world’s first
The Galaxy S8 expansive display stretches from edge to edge, giving you the most amount of screen in the least amount of space. And the Galaxy S8+ is even more expansive—our biggest screen yet.¹
Catch every shot.
The Galaxy S8 camera still takes amazing photos in low light, and now has an enhanced front-facing camera so you can take better, clearer selfies.
Designed around you.
Press the Bixby Button and get more done. Bixby learns from your routine to serve up the right apps and content at the right time, and makes it easy to ask Bixby a question or make a command.
What you need, when you need it.
Bixby is built into your Galaxy S8, and can adapt to your routine to anticipate what you might need, surfacing specific apps and content based on where are you are and what time it is. So in the morning, you might see your Health app. Or at night, your alarm and step count.
Look at your world in a new way.
Bixby is built into your camera, so you can identify landmarks, translate foreign languages or shop for products online right when you see them. Focus on an object in your viewfinder and tap the Bixby eye icon to get a deeper understanding of what you’re looking at.
Create and explore in 360
