and marks a new milestone in Samsung’s smartphone legacy.” 

The exquisite Galaxy S8 series builds on Samsung’s heritage of creating stunning designs and functional devices. Available in 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 and 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+, the Infinity Display and bezel-less design form a smooth, continuous surface with no but

tons or harsh angles. The result is a truly immersive viewing experience without distractions and makes multi-tasking more convenient. The compact design of the S8 series enables comfortable one-handed operation and Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5 on both the front and back for durability and a high-quality finish.

The Galaxy S8 series is built on Samsung Knox, a defense-grade security platform. In addition, the Galaxy S8 series will offer a wide selection of biometric technologies, including a fingerprint scanner, iris scanner and facial recognition so users can select a secure biometric authentication method that works best for them,” said Mr. Paul Lee, Managing Director, Samsung Electronics West Africa.
