Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ have been a huge success for the company. One of the major factors for their success was the Infinity display, which allowed the phones to have huge screens in a compact form factor. Today, a new report by The Bell has come out stating that Samsung will utilise their infinity display technology in the alleged Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ which Samsung might be launching in the upcoming months.
The report citing a few industry sources states, Samsung has told its display manufacturers about the sizes of displays to be manufactured for the alleged Galaxy S9 and the S9+. The report says that the Galaxy S9 will sport a 5.77-inch display and the Galaxy S9+ will sport a 6.22-inch display. Which seems like Samsung has decided to introduce the same display sizes as the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ for its upcoming flagships.
The report has also mentioned that these will be the infinity displays and the home button will be absent from them. However, this time Samsung might introduce an on-screen fingerprint scanner. There were previous rumours regarding the on-screen fingerprint sensor being excluded from the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 due to technical immaturity. The Note 8 is expected to launch on August 23 this year.
While the report is claiming that Samsung has started manufacturing the Galaxy S9 and the S9+ display, it might change and the company could go another direction as the launch is still far and not much is known about the devices.
