Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ Screen Sizes Tipped – Expected to Boast Brand New and Crisp Display Technology
There is no question that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will continue to sport the Infinity Display that popularized the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. However, according to the latest rumor at hand, both these devices are going to feature varied display sizes as opposed to their predecessors and feature a different display tech. While these are just rumors, it is possible that Samsung also manages to solve the in-display fingerprint reader issue that has been plaguing them ever since the Galaxy S8’s inception.
In-Cell Touch Displays Rumored for Both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ – Could Make the Display Cheaper So Possibly a More Affordable Flagship Might Be in Tow
According to the details of this rumor, the Galaxy S9 will have a display size of 5.77 inches while the device’s larger counterpart will have a 6.22-inch screen. While that is considered a negligible difference between the predecessors and these future devices that will be incoming in 2018, what could be different is the display technology.
According to ET News, Samsung has allegedly opted to produce an in-cell touch solution for both Galaxy S9 models next year on its own. For those that don’t know, this display is also referred to as Y-OCTA and comprises up of flexible OLED technology that integrates the touch layer in the screen panel itself, which reduces the overall thickness of the phone.
In addition, it can also reduce the production cost by 30 percent so not only will customers be able to feast their eyes on a slimmer device, but Samsung could save a ton of money with this approach and choose how to go about the pricing of the smartphone. In other words, the Galaxy S9 could be made more affordable to the masses, or Samsung could increase its profits by a substantial margin.
Samsung is currently the largest AMOLED display manufacturer in the world for smartphones and tablets, so it is no question that the South Korean giant has near-limitless resources to make this display differentiation take place in future flagship devices.
