Samsung's Galaxy S8 and S8+ looks exactly like you expected. The fingerprint sensor has moved to the back, and the screen is larger.
With an IP68 rating, the Galaxy S8 lineup is dust and water resistant.
Samsung's new Infinity Displays take up 83 percent of the front of the S8 and S8+.
The S8's display measures 5.8 inches, while the S8+ comes in at 6.2 inches.
A bigger screen displaced the S8's home button, which is now a pressure sensitive on-screen button that taps you back when pressed.
Samsung is using the same camera found in the S7 lineup, but has upgraded processing software for better photos and video.
Despite the large screen size, neither phone feels big in your hand thanks to the curved display.
Every model of the S8 comes with a black front faceplate in an attempt to hide the sheer number of sensors placed just above the display.
Midnight Black will attract as many fingerprints as it does customers.
Throw your microUSB cables out, Samsung is all-in on USB-C. Oh, and the headphone jack lives to see another day.
It's really impressive how little the bezels on the S8 are.
The smaller, more affordable 360-degree camera will launch this spring with 4K and live streaming upgrades.
Samsung's personal assistant Bixby is capable of scanning and identifying items. After scanning this book, Bixby displayed purchase options from Amazon.
After scanning this bottle of wine Bixby displayed vintage, type, and grapes used.
The new Gear VR didn't return many results, but Bixby did recognize there was text in the frame and offered to translate if needed.
Bixby Home is where you can control home automation products, read news, receive reminders, and check weather to name a few.
Naturally, you can control any home automation products connected to Samsung's Smart Things platform directly from Bixby Home.
If you own Samsung's connected fridge, that means you can remotely view what's inside with a few taps of the button.
With a Dex docking station, a monitor, keyboard, and mouse you can convert your phone into a full-fledged computer.
With multiple USB ports, an ethernet port, and an HDMI port you won't run out of ports.
The Dex dock looks a lot like one of Samsung's wireless charging docks.
A lock screen displays just as it does on the phone, and you can unlock it using facial recognition or iris scanning tech.
After unlocking the S8 when it's connected to Dex, you're presented with a basic desktop interface. App shortcuts, files, and an app drawer are all there.
Dex allows users to resize and use multiple windows at the same time. In this photo, the Microsoft Office Suite is being demonstrated.
Samsung is working with the likes of Citrix and VMWare to optimize the respective software to run virtual instances of Windows 10 on the S8.
