There is no avoiding tech product cycles. You buy the latest gadget, and months later something new comes out that stimulates you want to irrationally expend more money–even if the device you first bought aimed up being better than expected.
Its only been a few days since the Galaxy S8 and its stunning edge-to-edge display went on sale, but Samsungis already reportedly working on a new division that would induce the infinity display look outdated. The rumored display would feature a screen that encompasses the entire face of the device and wraps around all four of its corners, according to a report from Etnews in Korea( spotted and translated by Sammobile ). The edge-to-edge and top-to-bottom display would theoretically cover up to 98 percentage of the front of the device. For comparison, the infinity display on the Galaxy S8 gives the freshly liberated device an 88 percentage screen-to-body ratio.
The report did not say which phone would feature the new panel, but did say Samsung wants to show off the display as early as next year. Samsung will first need to establish a new laminating process before that happens as the current would reportedly not allow for touch reply in the corners of the screen.
The company’s fellow South Korean rival LG is also said to be developing a similar display. The two electronics monsters appear to be trading punches. LG first exposed its edge-to-edge display on its G6 weeks before Samsung unveiled the infinity display on the Galaxy S8. Both companies are also reportedly planning to freeing afoldable smartphone sometime this year.
Right when it was starting to feel stagnate, the smartphone industry is finally presenting new signs of life.
