“Samsung Display would roll out a full-screen display whose display area ratio (a scale that measures space taken up by a display on the front part of a handset) reaches more than 90 percent next year,” said Park Won-sang, a principal engineer at the display-making unit of Samsung, during the iMiD 2016 display exhibition in Seoul last week.
For now, average display ratio in the smartphones being launched is 80%, what the future looks like is it’ll raise to 90%.
As the forbes reported, Samsung would not be the first company to release a device with an edge-to-edge display. The Xiaomi Mi MIX has a 6.4-inch IPS LCD edgeless display with a screen-to-body ratio of 91.3%. The ceramic black version of the Xiaomi Mi MIX with 4GB RAM, 128GB storage and dual SIM is available for pre-order at a price of $669.
