With yesterday's OnePlus 6T launch, we're finished with another year's flagship smartphone cycle. In smartphone history, 2018 will be known as the year that completed the industry's adoption of edge-to-edge display panels. Having made significant advances in display and photography, Android manufacturers can now completely focus on 7nm processors. But, Samsung might have different plans. Take a look below for more details.
Samsung Patents A Brand New Infinity Display In South Korea As Company Gears Up To Go All Out On Next Year's Galaxy S10 Launch
It's no secret that the Galaxy S9 lineup did not perform as Samsung wanted it to. The pair failed to impress users due to Samsung's lack of innovation in aesthetics. There was a time when the Korean tech giant's edged display panels were the talk of the town. That time was in 2015, and since then, Samsung has relied on its edged displays far too much to differentiate its flagship lineup from other gadgets.
Add to this reliance overheating and other problems, and it's no wonder that the market failed to adopt the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ - despite the latter's variable aperture rear camera lens. Now, rumors claim that Samsung will launch three new devices next year under the Galaxy S10 branding. We've managed to get our hands on a patent Samsung filed in South Korea, which might give a hint on one critical feature for the Galaxy S10 lineup.
The patent is for an Infinity V display, which most likely means the fifth generation of Samsung's advanced display panels. The first Infinity display was introduced on the Galaxy S8, and Infinity V should make it on next year's Galaxy S10 smartphones. As mentioned above, Samsung will launch three new Galaxy S10 devices next year, as it's eager to make a profit and increase market penetration for the lineup.
To that end, one of the three devices will be an entry-level smartphone. This will not feature an edged display, and Samsung might not equip it with virtual fingerprint recognition either. Another Galaxy S10 variant will be the high-end device expected to express Samsung's innovational prowess. This gadget will feature a triple-camera setup, virtual fingerprint recognition, and in all likelihood, an Infinity V display. Thoughts?
