Samsung may be using Note 7 display tech for the Galaxy S8

Dubbed Y-Octa, these displays have their touch sensors integrated in the panel, rather than layered like a thin film under the cover glass, and this also reduces the display controller size. All in all, it is a small amount of space being saved, but with today's tightly packed, extremely thin smartphones, every little bit helps.
Galaxy S8 with the other screen technologies from the Note 7, like HDR10-compliant display that can cover the DCI-P3 gamut? Hopefully, as there will be more and more HDR content to watch in the coming year or two, and the Galaxy S8 better be as futureproof as possible.Does that mean that Samsung will also equip the

It was safe to assume so. Note 7 screen tech is industry leading.

"Does that mean that Samsung will also equip the Galaxy S8 with the other screen technologies from the Note 7, likeHDR10-compliant display that can cover the DCI-P3 gamut?" Of course Samsung is going to equip the S8 with the Note7's display tech! Samsung is counting on the S8 to revive the lost sales of the Note7 and the trust of it's consumers... So, Samsung will obviously pack the S8 with just about all the tech which the Note7 had... minus the stylus.

In all honesty, I would have NO problem if they fixed the issues with the Note 7, repackaged it and maybe threw in the "under screen" fingerprint sensor and called it the S8/Note 8. To me, the Note 7 was by far the best phone I have ever owned. Very few phones have made me excited to purchase, the Note 7 sure did. I look forward to what comes!

I would not mind that at all. Obviously they cant do a cut/paste, but the Note 7 screen was amazing, and it would be a shame and a waste if it all got scrapped. Gotta think both economically (if you are Samsung), and ecologically, as recycling the screens as much as possible would be very green and money saving. No downside really.

Wrong. Note 7's leftovers will be sold for Apple, they will use them in their groundbreaking and innovative iPhone 13s :D

What the article is trying to say is that Samsung will be using actual panels that were built for the Note 7, remember the warehouse is still full of this components that did not get used, they cannot just be destroyed.

Maybe, only nothing in the article hints at Samsung using N7 displays again. It talks about using the TECH. Really, another stupid PA article.. of course Samsung will take the best tech from their best device and carry it forward.

What you're really hoping is it won't be the best phone on the market again. So, you'll probably be very unhappy when it comes out.

Samsung have their touch sensors integrated in the panel since 2011 when On-cell touch Super AMOLED (OCTA) was released, while LCD don't have, OCTA is an old tech. The different between AMOLED and SuperAMOLED is on cell and not on-cell, SuperAMOLED first showed up on GALAXY S in 2011 with On-Cell Touch AMOLED(OCTA)technology. you can search the keyword"Samsung OCTA AMOLED 2011" if you doubt it.

Samsung should not ditch the flat screen version of galaxy s8. Much as the curved screen is fantastic there many fans favour the flat screens for various reasons.
