Samsung is gearing up for the Galaxy S8 launch, and it could be the best Samsung smartphone yet. New rumors are reporting that Samsung’s upcoming flagship could sport a bezel-less display.
Details after the break.
This report, coming by way of The Investor — a Korean publication — says that one of the drastic changes underway is an edge-to-edge screen based on an OLED panel.
The Investor says a Samsung Display researcher declined to comment, but did say a considerable amount of resources are being poured into the development process. Of course, that’s nothing out of the ordinary.
However, Park Won-sang, a principal engineer at Samsung Display, had some interesting words to say at the iMiD 2016 exhibit in Seoul last week:
“Samsung Display would roll out a full-screen display whose display area ratio reaches more than 90 percent next year.”
- No early release for the Galaxy S8
- Galaxy S8 to have a 4K display, 6GB RAM
- Galaxy Note 7 owners can get a huge discount on the Galaxy S8 next year
Currently, an average screen has around an 80% screen-to-body ratio. In contrast, the recently announced Xiaomi Mi Mix has a 91.3% screen-to-body ratio. So, if we get something close to that with the Galaxy S8, we could be getting a new device with an unprecedented (and more fragile) design.
Either way, the Galaxy S8 is setting up to be an intriguing smartphone.
