Samsung Galaxy S10 To Have New Infinity-V Display
Samsung is a leading electronic component supplier and the largest smartphone manufacturer globally. The South-Korean giant’s success dates back to the inception of the first Android smartphones. The company has been struggling to keep up its number one global position due to fierce competition from their Chinese counterparts. Ever since the launch of Galaxy S1 and Galaxy Note 1, Samsung has produced top of the line Android smartphones. And now the company is about to launch its latest Galaxy S10 smartphone.
Samsung’s Android Dominance
In the past, Samsung smartphones have been the standalone Android competitor to Apple iPhone’s prowess. But in recent times, new companies like OnePlus, Huawei and Xiaomi have grown rapidly hampering Samsung’s sales. However, Samsung being a leading component supplier can develop new innovations to regain lost market share.
Recently Samsung has filed a trademark with the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) for the Infinity-V display technology. The trademark is filed under category 9 which includes ‘smartphones and displays for smartphones’. This might be a new edge to edge display for the upcoming Galaxy S10.
Galaxy S10: Infinity-V display?
The Galaxy S10 will be the successor to the Galaxy S9 which was launched earlier this year. The last Samsung flagships S9 & S8 have not performed very well in terms of sales. So, it is expected with the Galaxy S10, Samsung will pull out the big guns and fully load the upcoming smartphone with the latest technology. The trend for smartphones with slim bezels is flourishing rapidly, Samsung’s competitors have launched devices that follow the same philosophy. The recently launched OnePlus 6T and Xioami Mi Mix 3 have marginally thinner bezels compared to what Samsung’s current flagship S9 has.
So, it is apparent to fight back and maintain traction in the industry, Samsung has to launch devices with thin or no bezels. This is where the latest trademark of the Infinity-V display is put to use.
Finally, the Samsung Galaxy S10 is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2019. Not many specifications for the device are currently available but it will surely have better features than the Samsung Galaxy S9. For reference:-
