Samsung Galaxy S8 May Feature A Screen Ratio of Over 90%
After the pullback from the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung is hard at work making the next flagship which may launch sooner than expected. The Samsung’s Galaxy S8’s claim to fame and revival of the brand may depend on new exciting smartphone features, and to do that Samsung may feature a flexible OLED display with a Screen to body ratio of over 90%.
Samsung Display would roll out a full-screen display whose display area ratio reaches more than 90 % next year -Samsung Display principal engineer Park Wong-sang
Samsung engineers claim that soon they will be able to add sensors in parts of the display making the ratio increase up to 99%.
During his presentation, Park Wong-sang also showed a concept image of a Galaxy S7 Edge with a full screen lacking a home button on the bottom of the screen, saying the edge-to-edge display would allow almost all sensors, such as the fingerprint sensor, to be built under the screen.
Apple is reportedly already working on an all glass design for the next iPhone, which in all possibility could be manufactured by Samsung.
Samsung may also push its launch cycles of its Galaxy S8 smartphone from late February near Mobile World Congress to early January to launch the handset around CES to make up for time lost during the Galaxy Note 7 recall and sales halt.
The Apple iPhone refresh will happen late 2017 in September.
