The biggest feature is "Infinity Display (Infinity Display)" and Samsung's display, which draws an edge line curved almost without bezels on both sides.

With the 3D edge screen we used in the edge series ......

It is designed to combine smoothly curved lines on both front and back.

Thanks to this design, fitting when I put it in my hand is good.

It supports not only quick charging but also wireless charging.

In order to realize the infiniti display, the home button is changed to the display under the pressure. The "return" and "history" buttons can also be operated with pressure.

As a result of embedding the home button, the fingerprint authentication function moved to a place hard to push a little on the back upper part.

However, since Galaxy S 8 has an iris authentication function, opportunities to use fingerprint authentication seem to decrease sharply.

Even when you can not use fingerprint authentication, you can unlock just by moving your eyes into the circle that appears on the display.

The Glaxy S8 is equipped with the virtual sharing function "Bixby". Bixby can operate with voice, letter and touch, it will make accurate judgment according to TPO.

Pressing the Bixby button on the side launches Bixby Home, and keep pressing and talking with Bixby. Incidentally,Bixby voice control planned to correspond to English, Spanish, Koreanis.

At the same time with the Galaxy S8 series, a new model of the simplified VR headset "Gear VR" also appeared.

VR content usage will be improved by dedicated controller.

Also, the 360 ​​degree camera "Gear 360" will be redesigned with renewed design.

The new Gear 360 has two 8.4 million pixel fisheye lenses, and it corresponds to the H.265 MP4 movie. Combined with the Galaxy S8 series, 360 degree live movie streaming is possible.

The global version of the Galaxy S8 series will be released on April 21, 2017, but the sale in Japan is undecided. However, since Japanese official website has already appeared, it seems that you can expect sales in Japan, but I'm worried that Japanese is leaked by Bixby's voice support.

Samsung announced that Samsung's large-screen high-end model Galaxy Note 7, which had been recalled due to explosion and ignition problems, will resold the collected terminal as a refurbished item (serviced item). It is noteworthy whether the new generation Galaxy Note 7 that can be expected to sell at a considerable discount price does not eat the demand of the Galaxy S8 series.
