No 21:9 display for the Galaxy S9, record screen-to-body ratio to come from shaved-off bezels
by Daniel Petrov / Dec 08, 2017, 2:33 AM
The source, with a good track record of Samsung-related scoops and finds, tips that it has gotten its paws on reliable info that the eventual screen area increase relative to the overall Galaxy S9 size, will be coming entirely from shrunk bezels, rather than a switch to an even taller aspect ratio.
The speculation is that Samsung will be gunning for the 90% screen-to-body ratio, which would be without precedent in a major flagships device. Thus, we are looking forward to see what bezel-shaving shenanigans Samsung might have engaged in, given that it still needs to house a whole lot of elements towards the top end. "To notch or not to notch" is apparently not a Hamletian question for Samsung.

21:9 or 18:9, it doesn't really matter as long as Samsung debuts it, Apple and other cheap Chinese copycats will imitate just like a cow.

18:9 is already ridiculous enough, 21:9 is a big no in mobiles.

If the physical size of the phone doesn't change in order to accomplish this then what's the big deal?

Given that the screen size stays the same for both devices, that will mean they're shaving a very small amount of bezel on the top and most of the bezel on the bottom. This means he S9/S9+ will be smaller devices than the S8/S8+. Let's just hope they don't decrease the battery size and instead increase the thickness slightly to compensate for the smaller form factor.

Quite silly form factor imo, already Samsung flagships come with edge design, and what are you left with, tall narrow strip of screen. For that mere reason I did not buy Note 8. Please Sammy put some thought and go back to 16:9 ratio
