Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to feature an OLED display
Amidst of all the fire that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 caused, the company is looking to unguent the situation by making its Galaxy S8 grand. The ‘S’ series flagship which is highly anticipated to be announced in February will have some serious upgrades to gain back the trust of its loyalists. The most recent leak reveals that the Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to feature an OLED display and will come with no or little bezel.
The reports suggest that the upcoming ‘S’ series flagship will feature full edge-to-edge OLED display with 90 percent screen-to-body ratio. This way the most of the front part will be consumed by the OLED display, and just about 10 percent will feature a metal body.
Samsung Display would introduce a full-screen display with display area ratio reaches over 90 percent next year.
The decision to opt OLED panels is being considered by Apple on the 2017 iPhone as well. At the IMD Display exhibition held in Seoul, Samsung mobile engineer Park Won-sang also suggested that the company is working on doing something innovative with the display, and is investing substantial resources for the same.
The display of Samsung Galaxy S8 is also expected to feature dual-curved edges, and an optical fingerprint sensor, which will allow the screen to read the prints, and thus would eliminate the Home Button, falling in the line of the 90 percent screen-to-body ratio. The smartphone is expected to sport a 5.5-inch 4K (2160×3840 pixels) display along with 806ppi pixel density. It is rumoured to be powered the Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 SoC coupled with 6GB of RAM. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is also expected to feature a 16-megapixel and 8-megapixel dual-camera set up. It is expected to have a slick design, an enhanced camera, and an enhanced artificial intelligence service.
