A tipster has told SamMobile that there could be a 90% screen-to-body ratio on the Galaxy S9, up from around 84% on the Galaxy S8.
That extra 6% screen will apparently mean that the bottom bezel is almost non-existent, while the top bezel will be narrower than the Galaxy S8’s bottom bezel.
It could also mean that the Galaxy S9 could either fit a larger screen in the same size body or the same size screen in a smaller body.
Catching up with Apple
It’s a move that makes sense, especially given that Apple’s iPhone X has almost no bezel, though it sounds like Samsung’s approach will be different, with a tiny sliver running right across the display, rather than a notch jutting out.
However, while it’s a believable claim it also comes from an unknown source, so we’d take it with a hefty helping of salt.
