People like to complain that tech sites and reviewers only get excited about expensive flagship phones that hardly anyone can afford instead of the everyman mid-range phone. But there are two good reasons for that: The first is that flagship phones tend to have awesome kickass features. The second is that those awesome features you see in this year’s flagships will likely show up in next year’s affordable mid-range handset.
If you’ve been longing to get your hands on the gorgeous Infinity Displays Samsung equips with their flagship Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note8 phones, 2018 could be a good year for you. Why? Well, the latest leaks of Samsung’s Galaxy A (2018) phones seem to indicate that they’ll feature Infinity Displays of their own.
This year’s flagships are mostly focused on delivering the largest screen without increasing the size of the phone. Instead of having a wider device, the new screens are taller with a typical 18:9 display aspect ratio as a result of a thinner forehead and chin design.
The Galaxy S8/S8+ and Note8 are Samsung’s first attempt at an all-screen phone with its Infinity Display. Now it appears that they are bringing this big screen experience onto their next mid-range smartphones that are due in early 2018.
