Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to feature Infinity Display, will launch with Android 7.1.1 installed?

Last week, we showed you a video that allegedly revealed the large front panel belonging to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Today, a new report out of the Netherlands suggests that the phablet's 6.3-inch display will have the same edge-to-edge Infinity Display as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+. That means that the larger screen on the Galaxy Note 8 will keep the same 18.5:9 aspect ratio...

This is a silly display ratio. Not everyone who has a phone sits and watches videos all day. This needs to go back to a usable ratio for general us not a narrow specific use ratio tailored for video only. When it comes to reading text the tall aspect does nothing to improve viewing at all. I viewed the G8/8+ yesterday and thought exactly that, went into the phone supplier with the intent of walking out with a G8, ended up walking out without one. This is just going to be a G8 by another name, it needs to be different to cater for a different user. A pointless phone.

Ummm... the ratio works fine for everything else. And, it'll likely be the best phone on the market, just as every Note has for the past several years.

4000 Mah + Stereo speakers + better fps implementation than s8 + S pen. Ill make the switch from my shiny new jet black 7 plus which is encased fully with protection on all sides so that even i wont ever get too see its beauty :p

Ditch the 18.5:9 ratio
