Samsung Galaxy S8 was introduced in 2017 as a next-gen flagship smartphone in the Galaxy S series of handsets. It builds on the high standards set by its predecessors and offers the biggest phone that the series has ever seen. A 5.8-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED touchscreen display, it is the biggest Galaxy S model as of March 2017. Despite this bigger size, the phone offers operation similar to the Galaxy S7. This is due to its bezel-less design. Having completely eliminated the borders this time, the handset has an 83.6-percent screen to body ratio with just the Infinity Display to immerse into. This way, the screen takes up all of the phone front and meets the aluminium shell on both sides. Resolution on screen is Full HD+ by default which can be switched to Quad HD+ from Settings menu.
So far as physical specs go, this mega handset comes with a sleek profile. It flaunts an 8.0mm build and weighs 155g. It retains the IP68 rating for water and dust resistance provided in its predecessor Galaxy S7. This allows the phone to withstand immersion in water up to 1.5 meters deep for a maximum of 30 minutes duration so long as all ports are properly closed. Its design gets rid of the home button of previous devices. Instead of the home button, Samsung has introduced a new pressure sensing 3D touch technology for its new on-screen touch buttons. The home button mounted fingerprint sensor available on the Galaxy S7 now moves to the rear of the handset which allows navigation especially browsing a whole lot easier.
