Samsung Galaxy S9 to be smaller than Galaxy S8 but with a bigger display


As always, we are expecting big things from Samsung’s flagship smartphone and the Galaxy S9 is no different, especially if the many rumours are to be believed.

The latest gossip seems to be concentrated around the new screen which is expected to be similar to the Galaxy S8, just with a few changes.

The aspect ratio will remain the same at 18:5:9 if the sources at GalaxyClub are to be believed.

The difference will be the bezels which it seems are going to be even smaller than they are now on the S8. This obviously means more screen area for the same size phone.

It is also thought that the screen-to-body ratio could be as high as 90% on both of the new devices, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus if the information that we have seen from GalaxyClub is correct.

It certainly seems that display bezels are a thing of the past with many other companies following suit.

The Korean firm is expected to keep the 18:5:9 aspect ratio in order to maintain uniformity across the whole smartphone range with the next generation Galaxy A devices also coming with the same aspect ratio. This means that app makers and Samsung will know exactly what specifications they are working to.

The hints and rumours at the moment seem to suggest that the Galaxy S9 could make an appearance as early as CES 2018 expo in January and although a Samsung spokesperson poured cold water on this, it might be an idea not to rule it out altogether.

Samsung seem to be suggesting that it will debut at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at the end of February.

Other than the display, Samsung are expected to launch a new colour and some new accessories although any huge jump in specs is not anticipated. As always take all rumours with a pinch of salt!
