Samsung Galaxy S8 To Have 90 Percent OLED Screen-To-Body Ratio
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 could have a whole lot of display, actually, 90 percent of the whole smartphone.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 may have an OLED display with 90 percent screen-to-body ratio, according to a new report from The Investor. An engineer from Samsung commented during the last week iMiD 2016 display exhibition happened in Seoul that the company would roll out such a design next year, 2017. But there was no confirmation whether is was set for the Galaxy S8 or another model.
During the iMiD presentation, Mr Park Won-sang, a principal engineer for Samsung's display manufacturing unit, also showed concepts regarding a bezel-less Galaxy S7 Edge. This is to confirm that the full design idea has been floating around Samsung Company. Won-sang said that it could produce a device with a 99 percent screen-to-body ratio in the next more years.
It was previously rumored that Samsung would remove the Galaxy S series’ long-standing physical home button on the Galaxy S8. This would be congruous with the speculation of a larger display area, as the home button may no longer fit on the front of the device, according to Android Authority.
Also, it would also mean that the removal of the fingerprint scanner is possible. However, it is built into the home button of the smartphone. Another rumor suggests that Samsung has taken care of that with its next generation display technology, and will allow users to have fingerprint scanning directly from the screen.
Samsung is expected to launch the the Galaxy S8 at MWC 2017 in February. Given Xiaomi's recently revealed Mi MIX also features an almost bezel-less display, the time could be right for Samsung to launch its own moel with the same feature.
