One of the many trends and craze that hit the smartphone scene in the last 12 to 15 months was the quality of our smartphones getting thinner and the frames around the display screens relatively disappearing.
Our smartphone bezels are dying into extinction… at a really fast pace.
Yeah, our smartphone bezels are dying into extinction… at a really fast pace.
2017 gifted us with countless smartphones from top brands with end-to-end displays and unbelievable screen-to-body ratio. Examples include the Xiaomi Mi Mix (83.6%), LG V30 (81.9%), Essential PH-1 (85%), Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus (84%), Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (83.2%), Apple iPhone X (82%) and more.
The Essential Phone PH-1 so far is topping the chart with a whooping 85% screen-to-body ratio but come early 2018, the upcoming flagship from Samsung, the Galaxy S9 will knock the Essential Phone off the top spot.
According to this source, the Galaxy S9 will launch with the Galaxy S9 Plus and at least one of the smartphone duo will feature an almost all-screen frontal with a record breaking 90% screen-to-body ratio.
Further spreading the information, top Samsung Mobile based news and rumour blog, SamMobile says there is a possibility that the Samsung Galaxy S9 would have no bottom chip/bezel and the side bezels may or may not be relatively the same as that of the preceding Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 have been subject of so many talks and rumours. With some corners reporting that the Galaxy S9 could feature a full view display and an in-screen fingerprint scanner. However, sources like this have debunked the rumour saying Samsung have made final internal decisions as to the official specifications and will be skipping the in-screen/in-display finger print scanner on the Galaxy S9.
With the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus having 90% screen-to-body ratio, the time which we have been anticipating (where we would get to see a pure bezel-less phone) is clearly near.
