The S9’s In­fin­ity Dis­play Is Now More Beau­ti­ful

SmartHouse - - DISPLAY - Writ­ten by ROMA CHRIS­TIAN

First de­but­ing on the Galaxy S8, Sam­sung has made its fa­mous edge-to-edge ‘In­fin­ity Dis­play’ even more aes­thet­i­cally beau­ti­ful on the S9/S9+.

Known for de­vel­op­ing their own dis­play tech­nol­ogy, Sam­sung’s OLED smart­phone screens re­main the in­dus­try leader - now used in many other brands’ flag­ship de­vices, in­clud­ing Ap­ple’s iPhone X.

De­spite look­ing re­mark­ably sim­i­lar to its pre­de­ces­sor, the South Korean gi­ant proves in­cre­men­tal evo­lu­tion is key to tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tion, with most of its dis­play im­prove­ments found ‘un­der the hood’.

In­tro­duc­ing ‘Adap­tive Con­trast En­hance­ment’, the Galaxy S9’s screen pro­vides strik­ing vi­su­als even in di­rect sun­light al­le­vi­at­ing a com­mon frus­tra­tion of many con­sumers.

Both the 5.8” Galaxy S9 and 6.2” Galaxy S9+ fea­ture Sam­sung’s lat­est Su­per AMOLED screens, which com­pli­ments a 18.5:9 High Dy­namic Range (HDR) ca­pa­ble dis­play for im­pres­sive video view­ing.

Ban­ish­ing side bezels, the S9 re­tains an er­gonomic grip, and al­lows the phone’s ‘In­fin­ity Dis­play’ to stylishly flow onto its sides.

To make the de­vice even more sleek, Sam­sung has turned the screen a deeper shade of black, to bet­ter blend in with top and bot­tom bezels, when turned off – an as­tound­ing at­ten­tion to de­tail.

Screen and body dura­bil­ity has also been im­proved, courtesy of a high-strength alu­minium al­loy body, and a thicker Corn­ing© Go­rilla© Glass 5 front.

The S9’s side metal frames have also been en­hanced for bet­ter scratch-re­sis­tance.

The Galaxy S9 in­tro­duces a new ‘Land­scape Mode’, which ad­justs the home screen and app tray’s ori­en­ta­tion, for bet­ter app ac­ces­si­bil­ity while watch­ing videos.

‘Edge light­ing’ for in­com­ing no­ti­fi­ca­tions is also now com­pli­mented by an in­stant launch ‘Multi-Win­dow’ – where users can view and re­ply to mes­sages with­out need­ing to exit their cur­rent app.

With its new Galaxy S9/S9+ Sam­sung fur­ther ce­ments its place as a leader in smart­phone dis­play tech­nol­ogy, demon­strat­ing acute at­ten­tion to de­tail and fine-tuned in­no­va­tion.
