Samsung Galaxy S8 Camera- what is it capable of?

While the camera is by no means the most hyped up feature of the new flagship S8 device, it is still a go-to feature when comparing high-end devices.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has a single-lens 12- megapixel, f/1.7 aperture snapper. It’s image processing mimics Google’s multi-shot technique by combining multiple photos into a single refined image. This doesn't sound anything special, and on paper, simply isn't... After all its predecessors, the S7 and S7 Edge, had the exact same hardware.

This is why to flaunt the improvements to the camera, Samsung recently commissioned a case study and photography project with Britain’s reigning Landscape Photographer of the Year, Matthew Cattell.

Matthew travelled the length of the UK in March and April to capture a series of stunning shots at locations which were named in the case study as the "greatest British views", all shot entirely on a Galaxy S8. And the results were astonishing...

From the 2,500 people sample study, giant phones are being specially being positioned at many of the winning locations to showcase the views via the new Infinity Display screen and bezel-less design, which form a continuous surface with no buttons or harsh angles.

Locations visited to date include Bournemouth, St Ives, Stonehenge and London. See the promotional video from Samsung below.
