New Features that we love about S8+

1. Bigger screen (Infinity Display) – yes a 6.2 inch touchscreen as compared of S8 5.8 inch without much evident difference in the size of the phone.

2. A 12 megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 8 megapixels front shooter for selfies. If you love to take selfies at an arm’s length or with a selfie stick the phone’s Smart auto focus tracks faces and keeps everyone in the group in focus giving you a clearer selfie.

3. The F1.7 lens bring in more light that you can capture amazingly beautiful pictures even in low light at night.

4. 10nm processor ever inbuilt in an android smart phone giving you an increased performance.
