Samsung alleged to order 5.77" Galaxy S9 and 6.32" Note 9 displays, same as on the S8 and Note 8

Samsung alleged to order 5.77
Not that it would come as a huge surprise, but, according to anonymous "industry sources" out of Korea, next year's Galaxy S9 and S9+, are expected to sport the same 5.77" and 6.22" screen diagonals as the current S8 duo. The leak has been intercepted courtesy of an order given to Samsung Display - the company's screen-making subsidiary - outlining the specifics of the upcoming S9 panels.

The S9 and S9+ display are also expected to be curved to the sides, and have minimal top and bottom bezels, resulting in the "infinity" design that Samsung introduced with its flagships this year. The kicker, however, will be that with the S9 Samsung will give a second try to incorporating in-display finger scanner with the the OLED package - something that it didn't have time to do for the S8, and most likely won't have for the Note 8 as well. Thus, Samsung will probably keep most of the new S9 features for under the hood and in the software department, which is pretty explicable, given that it just introduced its flashy new Infinity design this spring.

The report claims that Samsung Display has also received preliminary specifics for a 6.32" Note 9 panel, leading us to the thought that this is actually the same panel that will land in the Note 8 next month. This diagonal is only slightly larger than what the S8+ has, though the edgier corners of some leaked Note 8 images, and the more recessed bezels, indicate a larger screen area may be in store with the new Note indeed, as you can see below.

Leaked Note 8 protector suggests that the display diagonal may indeed be just slightly larger than the one on the S8+

Samsung Electronic wholly's owns both Samsung Display and Samsung Mobile. I am sure there is some type of ordering process that has to be followed. I think the terminology is correct. Even though they own the company, they still have to place orders to them for parts.

Well Samsung Electronic wholly's owns Samsung Mobile/Display. But I would think that when one Samsung company needs something from another, they place a normal order. They just don't have to pay for it, because operating/production costs are covered by Samsung Electronics.
