Alleged Galaxy S9 browser benchmark tips aspect ratio that screams Infinity Display design

Alleged Galaxy S9 browser benchmark tips aspect ratio that screams Infinity Display design
Details about Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9+ are slowly trickling down via tips, renders and leaked benchmarks to such an extent, that now we are able to confirm the screen aspect ratio with near certainty, courtesy of the HTML5 browser test.

A certain "Samsung SM-G960F" has made a pass there, running on Android 8.0 Oreo fumes, and it is none other than the successor of the SM-G950F, which in turn is the international codename of the Galaxy S8. The benchmark clearly lists a screen aspect ratio that is equivalent to 2.05:1, or exactly what the S8, S8+ and Note 8 sport, so Samsung is apparently aiming to stick the Infinity Display design around for one more year at least. 

The phone is running Samsung's newest browser version, 6.2, which, coupled with the rumored Exynos 9810 chipset, would explain the rather high 511 browsing benchmark score achieved - so far, the average mobile score achieved by devices running the 5.4 version of Samsung's browser, has been 490. About the only real mystery left regarding the S9 now is the eventual camera kit, and its photographic chops.

Think of it as almost the equivalent to the lag you get out of the box.

You did fail at Maths in highschool and iPhone 7 still beats your S8, S8+ and Note 8 as well.

What does iPhone 7 beat them at? Performance? Where have you been, didn't you hear about Apple's new slow down "feature"...

Even your new 845 couldn't beat A10 Fusion lol. Slowdown is still amazingly fast for your Samsung.

Even your A11 equipped iPhone couldn't beat the SD835 Note 8 is side by side real world speed tests.

It beat Note 8 everytime, lost only in memory retaining rounds.

No, even in most apps the Note 8 beats the iPhones, including browser speeds in real life and yes, reloading them faster too. Where the iPhones win is larger games and video editing/compiling, that's it.

Less than an year in some cases supposedly

No, even within a year, a good percentage (double digits) of iPhones 7 saw its performance reduced up to half the original values (on iOS 11.2), according to the Geekbench statistics. That means single core scores lower than an S8. And while these benchmarks usually focus on single cores, our phones utilize up to 8 most of the time in our real world browsers. Resulting in a Note 8 beating even an iPhone X in real world browsing speeds, despite less than half the scores in synthetic single core benchmarks, a "less optimized OS for the hardware" and "lag".

I never notice that slow down even though mine is over a year now. Also, we’re not going to die if the phone is a little bit slow. Life isn’t so short.

At least this phone won't get software throttled after a year...

in real world use. My s8 and note 8 with 300 apps on them don't lag or freeze. And can still get more done.

18.9 instead off 16.9. 18.9 looks so nasty and efing ugly mthrfkng hideous. It's so tall and narrow, looks like a Tv remote. Wtf browses diagonally, that you can't see the whole picture like you do in Tv's..

Like it or not, it won't be long till you get a 18:9 smartphone. Since all future smartphones are going to use this aspect ratio

I wouldn't mind seeing a Xperia XZ2 with mimimum top and bottom bezels yet still keep a 16:9 ratio, but it's probably unrealistic.

You are late. Sony is already preparing to launch some phones with 18:9 aspect ratio at MWC 2018.
