The screen specs for the Galaxy S9 haven’t yet been confirmed, but we can make some guesses as to what to expect from the upcoming Samsung flagship. In the past, Samsung has followed a familiar pattern with their displays so whilst we can’t definitely predict the display resolution or display size, we can make an accurate guess and provide some other definitive display information.
Samsung Galaxy S9 Screen Size
Firstly, for a flagship device, it’s very likely that the Galaxy S9 will be between 5.1 inches and 5.5 inches. If the Edge lineup continues, we’ll see a 5.5 inch display on the Galaxy S9 Edge and a 5.1 inch display on the Galaxy S9. If Samsung decide to bring the Edge and the standard S9 together into one single handset, then we may see a display size between these two aforementioned sizes.
Samsung Galaxy S9 Screen Resolution
As for resolution, the Galaxy S9 is expected to come with at least a 1440 x 2560, or 2K resolution. However, it’s possible that both the Galaxy S9 variants, or at least the Galaxy S9 Edge, will come with a higher 2160 x 3840 (or 4K) resolution. If Samsung opts for the higher resolution, it could be likely that the display will have dynamic resolution settings so that it can downscale to a lower resolution when viewing non-4K content to save on battery life.
As far as display technology goes, the Galaxy S9 will be using the latest AMOLED technology available at the time. Samsung has proven to the world that AMOLED smartphone displays can offer the warmest, sharp and most color-accurate experiences and they have stuck to the AMOLED technology religiously.
Not only can we expect rich, warm colors on the Galaxy S9 display, but we can expect its full brightness setting to make daytime usage easy, even on a bright summer’s day. The 0% brightness setting may not be as dim as some other displays on the market, but it’s a fair trade-off for the other screen specs for the Galaxy S9.
