One of the biggest differences from previous models is the screen. Called the Infinity Screen the S8+ screen spills over from side to side creating the biggest and most immersive screen yet. At 6.2 inches the S8+ home screen button is embedded under the screen-remaining hidden until needed and the navigation keys are as inconspicuous. Removing the extra buttons and bezels we are all used to the Samsung S8+ provides a bigger screen without having to enlarge the phone. The sleek design of the phone ensures that it is still comfortable enough to hold in your hand and the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 back coupled with the IP68 rating gives extra piece of mind in terms of durability.
Moving to the camera, the S8+ features a 12MP rear camera and 8 MP front facing camera. Your life is 24/7 and with Smart Auto Focus the front facing camera tracks faces making sure that all your selfies will be in focus! The Dual Pixel Sensor focuses as quickly as your eyes do ensuring that you can capture the moments as they happen. The S8+ camera was designed to take photos in all types of lighting whether it be day and night. With a range of cool features including Pro Mode, Selective Focus and Food mode you will have hours of fun taking snaps and sharing with family and friends. In line with the sleekness of design the rear camera lies flush with the phone.
Performance wise, the Samsung S8+ introduces us to the innovative 10nm processor. A world first, this ensures that anything done on the S8+ will be super fast and efficient from gaming to watching media or even video calling. With 64GB internal memory and 4GB RAM the Samsung S8+ operates and will be launched with Android OS version 7, Nougat. The new processor assists with lower power consumption (down 20%) and combined with faster LTE and Wifi makes the S8+ a force to be reckoned with.
Finally on the security front the S8 has improved dramatically on previous incarnations by adding Iris Scanning and Facial Recognition coupled with the usual security mediums of Fingerprint Sensor and passwords. No two iris’ are the same which provides airtight security and peace of mind knowing you will be the only one who can open your device. For quick unlocking Facial Recognition is a real gem. Finally Secure Folder is another feature which you can add ensuring that once your files are there you are the only one who can see them. This feature can be also be hidden so that you are the only one who knows it is there. With the defence grade Knox system featured on the S8 Samsung have really taken security into account and upped the ante.
Its been a wait but Samsung has proven that good things come to those that wait!
