Samsung boasts about Galaxy S8's innovative design, Infinity Display, Bixby, and more19
The new Galaxy phones offer ample material for discussion, as they could very well be the harbingers of a new era for smartphone design – an era of small bezels, big displays, and relatively compact devices.
With the Galaxy S8/S8+, Samsung is moving away from the current-standard screen aspect ratio of 16:9, in order to minimize bezels and maximize available space. The beautiful new “Infinity Display” that graces the fronts of both devices has an odd (but promising) aspect ratio of 18.5:9, which makes it is considerably taller than a standard 16:9 display, and allows the panel to utilize the available space more efficiently. LG is doing something similar with the G6, although the latter's “FullVision” display is a tad shorter than Samsung's offering and has an aspect ratio of 18:9 (or 2:1).
But we digress. If you want to know more about Samsung's “Infinity Display” and LG's “FullVision” display, and how they could change the smartphone industry (and also why you should keep your expectations in check), take a look at these articles:
