Samsung’s next–generation Galaxy S9 will feature an improved screen-to-body ratio, covering as much as 90% of the front of the device and allowing the handset-maker to fit a much larger screen in a relatively compact phone.
An inside source says that Samsung will slim down the bezels (that's the part of a phone that surrounds the screen) on the Galaxy S9 to the point where the bottom edge is virtually non–existent.
Want more Galaxy S9 rumours? Here's what we think we know so far.
The warmly reviewed Galaxy S8, released earlier this year, features am 84% screen-to-body ratio.
While the mooted improvement on the S9 would represent a marginal gain, it would likely make next year's Galaxy S smartphone look and feel even more 'premium' than its predecessor.
Despite this change, Samsung is still expected to persist with a rear–mounted fingerprint scanner, although its facial-scanning security technology is likely to be improved in the wake of iPhone X's excellent Face ID.
The Galaxy S9 is set to launch ahead of Mobile World Congress, which takes place in Barcelona next February.
