Samsung Galaxy S9 with Y-OCTA display
The new Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus would have 5.8 and 6.2-inch screens with Quad HD + resolution and Super AMOLED technology. That is, they would have the same screen as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. Although in the case of the new version of smartphones they would have a Y-OCTA screen. We can’t even say it’s a new screen, as the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has already been launched with a Y-OCTA screen. However, it seems that it was impossible for the Samsung Display division to make enough Y-OCTA screens for the Samsung Galaxy S8s. However, the Samsung Galaxy S9 would have a Y-OCTA screen.
Will they have superior image quality? Well no, not really. Y-OCTA displays do not have superior image quality. In reality, the screen of a smartphone is made up of an AMOLED panel, which is what generates the image, and a digitizer, which is what turns the screen into a touch screen. However, a Y-OCTA display is a display in which both the touch panel and the AMOLED panel are a single panel. In this way, the cost of the screen is lower.
But not only would the mobile phone be cheaper to manufacture for Samsung, but this would also be relevant in case the mobile receives a blow that breaks the screen, because buying a new screen and installing it will be cheaper.
However, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 would be launched on August 23, and there is no possible release date for the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, although it is likely to be presented in February or March 2018. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could also have a Y-OCTA screen, although the truth is that so far it has not stated that it will have this screen. Perhaps due to the fact that many screens have to be produced for the Samsung Galaxy S9, and that the screens for the new smartphone have already started, a standard AMOLED screen has been installed on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
