After months of leaks and countless rumours, the Samsung Galaxy S8 has been officially unveiled. The device is one of two new phones with the S8 landing alongside the even larger 6.2-inch Samsung Galaxy S8+. Both feature facial recognition technology that allows users to unlock the phone with their face, and a Bixby ‘personal assistant’ button. They are available for preorder on March 30th and will be shipping on April 21st, with full retail prices starting from $750 for the S8 and $850 for the S8+.

Both devices have a curved edged display that dominates the face of the phone. The screen extends up and down to cover nearly the entire face of the phone, curving around the left and right edges to form what Samsung is calling the ‘infinity display’.
