There is no doubt that Galaxy S9 and S9+ will continue to sport Infinity Display that popularized Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. However, according to the latest rumor at hand both of the devices will feature varied display sized as opposed to their predecessors and feature different display technology.
While these are just rumors, it is possible that Samsung also manages to solve in-display fingerprint reader issue that has been worrying them ever since Galaxy S8’s inception.
In-Cell Touch Displays Rumored for Both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+
According to details of rumors, the Galaxy S9 will have a display size of 5.77 inches while device’s larger counterpart will have a 6.22-inch screen. While that is considered a negligible difference between predecessors and these future devices will be coming in 2017 what could be different is the display technology that will be used.
According to ET News, Samsung has allegedly opted to produce an in-cell touch solution for both Galaxy S9 models next year on its own. For those that don’t know, this display is also referred to as Y-OCTA and comprises up of flexible OLED technology that integrates the touch layer in the screen panel itself, which reduces the overall thickness of the phone.
In addition, it can also reduce production cost by 30 percent so not only customers will be able to feast their eyes on the slimmer device but Samsung could save a lot of money using this approach and choose how to go about pricing of the smartphone. In other words, Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ could be made more affordable to masses and Samsung could increase its profits by a substaintial margin.
The company is currently largest AMOLED display manufacturer in the world not only for its phones and tablet but also for other companies, so it is no question that Samsung has near-limitless resources to make this display differentiation take place in future flagship devices.
