The Digital Upgrades: 

1. Selfie-Friendly Camera

Equipped with an advanced 8MP F1.7 Smart autofocus front camera and 12MP F1.7 Dual Pixel rear camera for the best low-light, zoom and anti-blur photos it makes snapping pictures, or taking selfies a breeze even for the least artistic. 

2. Easy Downloads

Boasting the industry’s first 10nm processor, the internal software means users can quickly download files, regardless of the file size, meaning if you upload insta images from an external camera, you can now do it quicker than ever. 

3. State-Of-The-Art Entertainment

Watching Netflix on-the-go has never been so simple. The world's first mobile device certified by the UHD Alliance as Mobile HDR Premium, the Galaxy S8 lets you watch videos in ultra HD quality. 

4. Safe & Secure:

Built on the formidable sounding Samsung Knox, a defense-grade security platform, the Galaxy S8 will offer a wide selection of authentication technologies including a fingerprint scanner, iris scanner and facial recognition. 

5. Accessories:

Supported by various accessories one of the main new additions is the DeX, short for "desktop experience." The little dock allows your phone to be plugged into port that effectively turns it into a desktop computer. Genius.
