Galaxy S9 screen protectors validate design similarities with the Galaxy S8


Last updated: January 3rd, 2018 at 15:00 UTC+02:00

When rumors about the Galaxy S9 first started coming in last year it was claimed that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ would have notably reduced bezels compared to their predecessors. That would have meant that Samsung would further improve the screen-to-body ratio and push the envelope on the look of a bezel-less display.

However, it was reported last month that the Galaxy S9 may not have slimmer front bezels because the improved design with reduced bezels failed to make the cut. Third-party accessory manufacturer Olixar has revealed its first Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ screen protectors today and they confirm that these handsets will have the same screen dimensions as the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Even the front camera and sensor placement is said to be the same.

If these reports are accurate then the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will look almost identical to their predecessors from the front. They are said to feature the same 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch panels. A recent report has also claimed that the new handsets will also retain the 18.5:9 aspect ratio.

Olixar’s screen protectors for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are now available for pre-order exclusively from Mobile Fun. The product image in the listing also suggests that the new handsets will be identical to their predecessors.

That’s not necessarily a bad thing. The Galaxy S8 had one of the best designs of any smartphone released last year. I’m sure many Samsung fans will be pleased that the company is sticking to a winner.

Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ at the Mobile World Congress 2018 in February.
