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.
Do even more.
Monitor everything from activity to sleep to nutrition, live chat with a doctor and stay motivated with notifications.³

6For a limited time only, on Samsung.com/Shop Samsung App, pre-order or purchase a new qualifying Galaxy device (“Qualifying Purchase”), send in your qualifying trade-in device to Samsung through the Samsung Trade-In Program, and if Samsung determines your trade-in device meets all eligibility requirements, you will receive a trade-in credit specific to your qualifying trade-in device to apply toward your Qualifying Purchase. Device models that currently qualify for trade-in and trade-in credit amounts associated with those models are available on Samsung.com and the Shop Samsung App; eligible models and amounts may change at Samsung’s sole discretion. To be eligible for trade-in, your qualifying device must meet all Trade-In Program eligibility requirements, which include, but are not limited to, that the device powers on, holds a charge, and does not power off unexpectedly; has a functioning display; has no breaks or cracks in the screen (unless a cracked screen offer applies); has no breaks or cracks in the case; has no liquid damage (whether visible or not); has no other defects that go beyond normal wear and tear; is not on a black list; has a verified FCC ID; has been reset to factory settings; has all personal information removed; has all software locks disabled; and is owned by you (leased devices are not eligible). Anticipated trade-in value will be applied as a credit at time of purchase, but, if you do not send in your trade-in device within 15 days of receipt of your Qualifying Purchase, you will be charged back for the trade-in credit applied to your purchase, or if you send in your trade-in device within 15 days of receipt of your Qualifying Purchase but Samsung determines your device does not meet all eligibility requirements, you will be charged back for the trade-in credit applied to your purchase minus $25. Participation in this program does not excuse you from contracts with your carrier or retailer (or any related payments or fees) for the device that was traded in. Limit 1 trade-in per Qualifying Purchase. Samsung reserves the right to modify or discontinue this offer at any time. The Trade-In Program cannot be combined with any other Samsung, carrier or retailer promotions, discounts, or offers unless specifically provided for in the terms and conditions of such offers. Additional terms, including terms that govern the resolution of disputes, apply. Click here to learn more.
7The Galaxy S8 and S8+ provides various levels of biometric authentication, with the highest level of authentication from the iris scanner and fingerprint reader. In addition, the Galaxy S8 provides users with multiple options to unlock their phones through both biometric security options, and convenient options such as swipe and face recognition.
It is important to reiterate that facial recognition, while convenient, can be only used for opening your Galaxy S8 or S8+ and currently cannot be used to authenticate access to Samsung Pay or Secure Folder.
