I think Samsung will increase the screen real estate by bringing back the touch bottons to the lower bezel. That's the only way to design the phone with a symmetric design and avoid the apple like notch.
Anonymous, 21 Dec 2017What's the point in bezelless display and 18.9/21.9 ratio and whatnot? they are expensive to p... moreSimple. To allow for having to move the physical home key on to the screen. If you take the bottom part of the screen for the home button away what's left is actually closer to 16:9.

How come that fans on chinese phones come everywhere to talk bad about Samsung, yet I see no Samsung fans trashing those phones for no reason?

Kiyasuriin, 21 Dec 201720:10=18:9 if you didn't notice...
as both represent a ratio of TWO to ONE.
Resolution wise... moreyup exactly, the aspect ratio is the same but the display is bigger. good point. i was referring to the width and height of the phone. Phones will become bigger and bigger, that's the truth we can't deny. Even tho i find a 6inch screen with a 18:9 to be the perfection i just wonder how phones will be in 2025.
Samsung was the first to offer this ratio.. now everyone is going the same way.. at least 2x1 which is a great way to give a bigger screen on a device the same size and sometimes (S8) even thinner in the hand!
I'm convinced the extra 0.5 in the 18.5x9 it would normally be.. is specifically for the bottom screen buttons therefore still giving a 18x9 screen ratio at all times... and it's a fantastic idea!
everyone is jumping on the bandwagon now.. just like they did when Samsung made the first big screen "phablet" phone .. and the curved edge is now very subtle too.. and really gives you no bezels on the sides.. i will be sticking with the best.. And it's definitely Samsung.. even the new midrange A8 is looking AWESOME!
What's the point in bezelless display and 18.9/21.9 ratio and whatnot? they are expensive to produce and lack of spare parts meaning it's impossible to replace damaged bezelless display if a device is more than 1 years old. You see these old flagships like old Google Nexus or Sony Xperia Z series are easy to find replacement parts in third party's repair shops unlike today where there is high demand in bezelless display which the model likely to become discontinued after 6 months. Some people are so thick before they know it.
I'd be interested if they would ditch the edge display. But since they won't and I'm interested only in high-end flagships, I'm gonna choose a different brand.
I hate the content is stretched on the sides + accidental touches + VERY FRAGILE display = NO BUY!
Anonymous, 21 Dec 201718.5:9 of ugliness what is wrong with you, people? what is ugly? S8/s9?
Nope. iPhone 7/8 - this is ugly. 2007 design of pure ugliness.
If feels like people open just about every non-Apple related news just to post "Apple did it first". And most of the time, they're wrong.
MarcioR, 21 Dec 2017eww no, once you go to 18:9 you won't o back. And it won't admire me if phones become 20:10 in... more20:10=18:9 if you didn't notice...
as both represent a ratio of TWO to ONE.
Resolution wise you're correct. it's different. but pure math it's the same.
Anonymous, 21 Dec 2017Stop living in the past. LOL, and you stop living in an alternate reality (18:6 is not even the future. The future is 21:9. And even if it was the future...well we are living in the PRESENT, i don't care what will be the best solution years from now, i only care what is best NOW. And it's either 16:9 or 18:9 (Either option has its pros and cons depending on your usage)). Because in this reality there is no 18:6 content and it's useless, totally inconvenient aspect ratio.
