Say goodbye to flat smartphones — at least, if you’re a Samsung user. The most surprising part of today’s Galaxy S8 and S8+ announcement is that Samsung included the Infinity Display on both its flagship devices. The slightly tapered edges aren’t as extreme as those found on the original S6 Edge, but they create a unique viewing experience and incorporate unobtrusive, quick-access menus.
It was hard to miss the leaked images leading up to Samsung’s announcement, but seeing the devices in person was more impressive.All the best flagship smartphones often look like a sea of rectangles with different combinations of glass and aluminum. The S8 and S8+, however, offer unique — but practical — designs. But when you look beyond the displays, these two devices have a lot to prove.
