Report: Samsung Galaxy S9 to keep same screen size as Galaxy S8, on-screen fingerprint scanner likely to make its debut

Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+

According to fresh reports by The Bell, Samsung will stick to the same 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch screen sizes for the 2018 Galaxy S9 and S9+, respectively.

The two phones have received a good welcome, at least according to Samsung, where the company says that the phones are selling 15% more than what the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge managed last year. This contradicts with recent reports by market analysts who had claimed that the S8 had managed to sell just 9.8 million units compared to the 12 million S7 units sold during the first two months.

Despite the mix-up, Samsung has reportedly submitted its requirements for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ to Samsung Display, with the production phase expected to kick off soon. The Infinity Display will be keeping its place alongside on-screen buttons and as expected, Sammy will once again make an attempt to integrate an in-display fingerprint scanner on the S9.

As for the 2018 Samsung Galaxy Note 9, the same 6.32-inch screen size that will feature on the Galaxy Note 8 will also be retained. The company is expected to unveil the Note 8 on August 23 at a special event in New York, with the phone’s release happening in two phases beginning slated for early September and early October.
