If you literally loved what you saw on Samsung’s two 2017 flagships, you should be excited about the Galaxy S9. The Infinity Display that shipped on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 will be carried over to the 2018 flagship. An HTML browser benchmark captured some data about the phone, and it revealed one area Samsung doesn’t intend to change is the display.
The results from the benchmark confirmed an 18.5:9 aspect ratio for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, which is identical to what we’ve seen this year. Samsung essentially made all-screen fronts mainstream in the mobile industry. And, in 2018, it’ll continue pushing the look as standard. The Infinity Display is here to stay, folks.
Rarely will you find complaints about Samsung’s high-end displays. Its flagships always include industry-leading technology that shows off rich, vibrant colors. That’s why Apple decided to pay Samsung a fortune for the custom OLED panel on the iPhone X. Apple, after seeing phones like the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8, wanted the same premium viewing experience on its latest iPhone. And it’s absolutely no surprise Samsung won’t be altering a terrific thing it has going for its own phones.
The only difference between the displays on the Galaxy S9 and its predecessor will likely be size. Samsung could tweak measurements if it wishes, but consumers aren’t going to mind that. By narrowing the width and slimming the top and bottom bezels, Samsung’s figured out how to ship big-screen phones without the overall footprints being massive.
Samsung hasn’t confirmed anything yet, but the Galaxy S9 is expected to debut in late February at MWC 2018.
