Samsung has clearly curved a corner with the Samsung galaxy S8 and Samsung galaxy S8+ in 2017. The Samsung has continued to filter its design since then all that progress culminated with the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung galaxy s8+ which were unveiled late last month and are set to be released in less than two weeks.
How impressive the Samsung galaxy s8 design? So impressive that all hardcore apple fans can do is complain about misaligned USb –C ports and speaker holes, since alignment is apparently far more important than squeezing as much as possible into a compact housing.
Of course, everyone expects Apple to quickly take back the design crown when it releases the iPhone 8 later this year. As we’re now seeing, however, is that simply might not be the case.
As an iPhone user for what will soon be 10 years, I can happily say that Samsung’s new Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are far more surprising than any iPhone that has existed so far. I’m not sure why other iPhone users have so much trouble acknowledging that.
As I stated in no uncertain terms after spending some time with the Samsung galaxy S8 and Samsung S8+ ahead of Samsung’s declaration, the company has clearly out-designed Apple.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Review: Top 8 most expected feature upgrades over Galaxy S7 series
Samsung has created two Smartphone’s with big, beautiful screens that are both far more contented to use than any comparable models from the company’s rivals.
The shrunken bezels surrounding Samsung’s “Infinity Display” coupled with the curved sides on the front and back are virtually perfect allowing for current technological limitations. And needless to say, Samsung’s most recent Super AMOLED screens are simply stunning.
Now, here’s where things get interesting. Apple has used the same iPhone design for three straight years now, but that comes to an end in 2017.
The next-gen flagship iPhone 8 is supposed to feature an entirely new design with an OLED display, no home button, much smaller bezels around the screen, and a glass back.
According to new rumors, however, Apple might not have found a way to go quite as far as Samsung did with its new design.
The dimensions noted above have been floating around weibo and a few other forums lately, and they suggest that Apple’s tenth anniversary iPhone will be a big step forward compared to Apple’s current iPhone.
It will apparently be sized in between the 4.7-inch model and the 5.5-inch iPhone 7s Plus, and yet it will feature a screen that’s larger than both of those phones. And yet… Samsung has managed to fit the same sized screen into a smaller device — the Galaxy S8 measures 148.9mm tall by 68.1mm wide.
If these new rumors pan out, Apple will not have managed to top Samsung when it comes to the next iPhone’s screen-to-body ratio, which is quickly becoming the new Smartphone screen battleground now that resolution and pixel density are old news.
It might seem innocent — and Apple might have more new tech to pack into the iPhone 8, like an in-display fingerprint scanner — but it’s definitely an interesting shift in the industry.
