With just a few days left until the official launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung has recently applied to trademark the term "Infinity display" in the U.S. According to multiple sources, the name "Infinity Display" will be used in respect to the company's smartphones.
About Samsung's New 'Infinity Display' Trademark
Unfortunately, the documentation of the said trademark coming from GalaxyClub does not reveal any information regarding the name. The only information that has been disclosed for now is that it will be used exclusively on mobile telephones.
According to The Indian Express, this is actually not the very first time that the term "Infinity Display" has been heard. The term, which essentially refers to the smartphone's edge-to-edge Super AMOLED screen with near bezel-less design, has first surfaced in January.
Former News About The 'Infinity Display'
According to a previous report by The Guardian, the Galaxy S8 is said to have a larger "infinity" display that will be covering the device's entire front. However, it would not be particularly surprising.
LG, one of Samsung's rivals, has used the similar display with its G6 smartphone, which was just announced last week during the Mobile World Congress 2017 event in Barcelona. The LG G6 has a 5.7-inch QHD+ display with an aspect ratio of 18:9, something that LG calls FullVision; this means that the display is slightly taller than the standard 16:9 wide screen.
About The Samsung Galaxy S8
According to WCCFTech, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 will be completely different from its predecessor. The Galaxy S8 is going to be a sleeker-looking device with extremely thin bezels.
Reputable Samsung tipster, Evan Blass, has recently shared a photo of the press render of the Samsung Galaxy S8 on his Twitter account, seemingly confirming the upcoming design change. As of right now, Samsung has apparently started the mass production of the Galaxy S8, in preparation of its upcoming official launch, which would be in April 2017.
