Samsung Commences Work On Galaxy S9's Display Owing To Strengthened Gadget Quality Control Process
Samsung's fiasco with the Galaxy Note 7 won't be forgotten any time soon. Prior to the device's launch, almost every major stakeholder had massive expectations for the device. Those overly optimistic even expected the Korean tech giant to beat Apple's iPhone 7 Plus with the phablet, despite the fact that the Note 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus are different devices. Nevertheless, battery malfunctions for the device led to a worldwide ban and Samsung had to recall all units shipped.
The company seems to have learned fast from past's folly. It has beefed up quality control processes that surround mobile gadgets. The launch of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ bear testament to this fact. The devices launched later than usual this year, partly owing to process improvement. Now, these will also contribute, as expected, to the launch of the Galaxy S9. Korean sources claim that Samsung has commenced the device's development, in phases. The first section is the display.
“Since late last month, a display team for the S9 has started the development work with aims to supply samples from mid-April. About a month after the display, other key parts such as modules are expected to develop in phases.” according to those privy with details. Display is a critical feature for Samsung's smartphones. It takes an even more important role with the S8 and S8+. The devices reduce top and bottom bezels dramatically and feature a button free front.
