There have been a lot of rumors and reports about the Galaxy S9 design recently. It’s unclear if Samsung is going to make major or minor changes to the design of its next flagship smartphone. If changes are to be made, perhaps some of you might like if the company took inspiration from some existing devices.

Galaxy S9 Design

Would you prefer the Galaxy S9 design to be similar to the Galaxy S8? That would involve minimal bezels and possibly a fingerprint sensor at the back.

Perhaps you’d prefer a notch like the iPhone X for a front-facing fingerprint sensor? Most of you said in a recent poll that you’d not prefer it.

The Xiaomi Mi Mix has also been part of this whole bezel-less trend with its super slim bezels. Some Samsung fans might want to see that on the Galaxy S9.

Vote below and let us know what you prefer. Discuss why you think a particular Galaxy S9 design change should be implemented by Samsung in the comments section.

Results: Unsurprisingly, 77 percent of our readers think Samsung should stick with the Galaxy S8 design. 14 percent are open to a design like the Xiaomi Mi Mix while only 9 percent feel that it should be like the iPhone X.

4 me, i want the note9 specifically to go completely bezeless. That is to say an all-screen front display with the normal cuvred edges, and everything in the front go on-screen including fingerprint sensor, camera and all other front based Sensors…

The notch can be good only if you can’t remove more bezels.. (so if we have no sensors on the sides is better to have notch.. but the target is to get all the sensors in 1 row so the bezels be small. (And if all sensores are in 1 row and you still have bezels that can be screen- do it)).
And please use gestures all over the place (like telegram do and IOS), iPhone x home gestures is nice but I think is too low.. I have to change my hand position (also for the top of screen?)

I vote for x design but only if this is only to get more screen that in any other way can’t be screen…
You do your best to trim down bezel and than want to even have screen on the side where you don’t have any sensors- than im good.

S9 is S8 with refined features.

I don’t want an iPhone clone. And please. We need the headphone jack. The galaxy s8 is small enough to be held in my hand but iPhone X is not. That tells a lot and you know why LG g6 isn’t good enough.

The ones that want flat screen and all other desine feachers of ip x buy g6 or some other flat screen phone and don’t ruen the s searies for all other people.

Firsts Galaxy S phones were with flat screen. With S6 they add curved edges sooo…

Every S series phone should be flat and curved like it was before. If someone need bigger screen there is Note series. I do not know why they changed it.

soo. buy a series…

My friend bought iPhone X. This phone looks good except notch and bumping camera. I like a lot the flat screen. I wish to see flat display and white back in new Samsung.
Big NO for any notches. This looks horrible.

Btw. We made our own speed test. My S8 was a bit faster with app like a Gallery, FB, message, gmail, but much slower with launching games.

I am thinking now about Note 8. I love designe of this phone but it is a bit to big for me.

Samsung is not going to give you a flat display. They’re hell-bent on warped displays with blinding glare and colour distortion. At least until reviewers start telling things as they are.

Get your eyes checked, because I have never seen image or colour distortion on my S6 edge+ or S8+ and if people can see the blue tint and screen burn in the Pixel 2 XL. I am more than sure that people would have seen image/colour distortion, and “blinding glare” on the edge devices.

Really? Let’s hear what Samsung says in their knowledge base.

=====
Why is the edge of the screen distorted when playing videos on my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge?
 
Due to the curved screen that the S7 edge uses, you might notice that the video looks distorted when on the very edge of the device.

This isn’t because the device is faulty, but because of something called White Angular Dependency (WAD). When using a curved AMOLED display, the WAD makes the colour white sometimes appear to have a green tint to it when looking at a certain angle.

In short: go to the eye doctor. Quick.

Sorry bro but there is no distortion on my S6 Edge and S7 Edge working perfectly go to the eye doctor. Quick.

If you wrap an image around a curved surface then you have distorted it, by definition!

Clearly some people don’t like the truth (judging by the downvotes)!

If they adopt iphone x desine i wont buy s9. Iphone x desine looks patetic. I gues the ones that like it didn’t see it in person. Horible. And the camera sticking out. Don’t be fools. This is first iphone that looks bad and s8 it the first samsung that looks perfect.

I think it’s the first iPhone that’s worth buying, finally with a decent design, a good display, and wireless charging. Though the price is absurd, of course.

I work for mobile company in eu. In person compering s8 and ip x desine is stupid. I am talking only abouth desine. Iphone looks bad when you put them together. If you guys didn’t see it in real life you can’t coment on this. S8 is like hot model and ip x looks like cheep hooker. Sorry for bad language. PS.: After ip x came out more then 70% of people that reserved it then bought s8 or s8+ and they were ip users for a long time. No one regrets it and they say that they dont regret… Read more »

I’ll take the dumb notch over a warped, distorted display any day.

Samsung also could copy the flat bezel-less iPhone X design and have the notch but to keep the sides of notch to display time – network – battery – notifications only

I think the S8s and Note8 are bezeless enough! No need to make it smaller, they just need a wider colour option worldwide! waiting TOO long for a RED GALAXY! and the top bezel to house even more sensors! lol

if Samsung designed the S9 similar to the iPhone X but without the notch , that would be great . no need for the edge curves it makes the phone more fragile

HossamAlMasri

in short , i would love to see the S8 Active design with no bezels on the sides and the bottom only a small bezel on the top to house the sensors / camera /speaker .. would be a gorgeous phone for me

Honestly, the bezels on my Note 4 are small enough. The side bezels seem no wider that the current trend, the bottom bezel is only just big enough to house the home and capacitive buttons – which I love. Maybe the top bezel could be slimmed down a bit, lose the Samsung logo and let the design speak for itslef. As to wrapping the screen over the edges, no thanks. Keep it flat!

The Note 4 is Samsung’s crowning achievement in terms of design.

Taking the iPhone design would be like changing a Ferrari into a Ford Fiesta…no chance. I reckon Apple won’t keep that notch after the X “s” version comes out in 2018.

Rumours are already circling that they’re ditching the “notch” design for the iPhone XI/X2/9 next year

lesser bezels and a redesigned back would be great !
