The Samsung Galaxy S9 Edge screen is going to feature a few new improvements when compared to its predecessors and in this article we’ll be discussing some of those potential new features.
Firstly, let’s talk about the entire Galaxy S9 Edge display as a whole. It’s very likely that the Galaxy S9 Edge display will get an overall technology enhancement. Whether the Galaxy S9 Edge gets a boost to 4K resolution or not, it’s almost guaranteed that the Galaxy S9 Edge will have brighter, better colors and a better viewing experience than previous Galaxy handsets.
If the Galaxy S9 Edge does get a 4K display, then that’ll mean it’ll be perfect for viewing 4K content on video streaming websites and YouTube. However, when 4K content is not being displayed, the Galaxy S9 Edge should smartly downscale to a lower resolution to save battery life. This is a feature we saw on the Xperia Z5 Premium and it worked wonders.
The Galaxy S9 Edge display will most likely come in at 5.5 inches in size as well, although there may be a slight discrepancy in size depending on how large the edge panels are.
The Edge panels on the Galaxy S9 should get an upgrade too – whilst they may not be that much larger than previous release of the Galaxy Edge lineup, there’s a lot of reason to believe that the software functionality of the Edge panels will get an upgrade and to add to that we may see more screen space dedicated to the Edge display, especially when the Galaxy S9 Edge is put into ‘always on’ mode.
Hopefully we’ll learn more about how the Galaxy S9 Edge display will work leading up to the device release in early 2018. Hopefully the Galaxy S9 Edge will be announced alongside the standard Galaxy S9 in March 2018.
