- 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
