Samsung Galaxy S8 2017 introduction

Galaxy S8 & S8 Edge Screen – Will Samsung Use A 4K Display

On the matter of displays, we should kick off with the screen sizes for past Samsung flagship phones:
Galaxy S7 – 5.1-inch
Galaxy S7 Edge – 5.5-inch
Galaxy S6 – 5.1-inch
Galaxy S6 Edge – 5.1-inch
Galaxy S5 – 5.1-inch
There’s a clear trend of 5.1-inch panels, which is a decent middle-ground that suits most users. We’d expect the Galaxy S8 to follow suit, although a report from the Korea Herald pointed to two variants: 5.7-inches and 6.2-inches.

We’re also convinced that 2017 might be the year Samsung moves to a 4K display, following on from the Galaxy S6’s introduction of a QHD screen. One report from Weibo suggested that one variant of the Galaxy S8 will use a 4K-resolution screen.

The main argument for introducing a 4K display is the growing popularity of virtual reality. When you use a Gear VR headset today, you’re looking at a Galaxy smartphone’s QHD screen. But because the image display is in stereoscopic mode – split into two, basically – then you’re getting half resolution. Pair that with the fact that your eyes are very close to the screen, and pixel density suddenly becomes very important.

If Samsung moved to a 4K panel, you’d enjoy a significantly enhanced VR experience – visually, anyway. And it’s worth noting that the Snapdragon 820, which powers the Galaxy S7, already supports native 4K displays at 60fps.
