Samsung Galaxy S8 Could be the Thinnest Phone in 2017 thanks to Note 7’s Y-OCTA Display Feature

Galaxy S8

Before Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was discontinued, the phone had already gathered quite an amazing set of positive reviews.

The phone had an amazing design alongside some of the latest technologies to show off, but its short-lived stay meant that users did not have enough time to enjoy the flagship. One of the major features of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is the Y-OCTA display technology. The South Korean tech giant went into this technology in order to end up with a thinner Note 7 while at the same time reducing the costs of production.

Even though it has been claimed that the main reason Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was bursting came from the fact that the phone had too much power forced into a tiny compartment, the company isn’t dropping some of the features that would have made the flagship a hit. As a result, it is rumored that Samsung Galaxy S8 could be the first to adopt this Y-OCTA technology in a bid to make the phone the thinnest on the market.

Samsung Galaxy S8 should be announced somewhere in early 2017 unless there are changes we currently don’t know of. With the unimpressive Galaxy Note 7, Samsung Galaxy S8 has a lot to carry on its shoulders. As a result, the tech giant is rumored to be working on the best technologies for the Galaxy S8 in order to mitigate some of the damages caused by the Note 7.

Samsung Galaxy S8 rumors

In addition to making the Galaxy S8 a lot thinner while reducing production costs, this Y-OCTA display  technology also allows for more cutting-edge technologies to easily co-exist in a single entity. For instance, rather than use touch-sensitive films found under regular touchscreens, Y-OCTA displays bring in touch sensors. In fact, given the rumor that Samsung Galaxy S8 could debut an optical fingerprint scanner, using this Y-OCTA display technology might be the best way to reach this feat.

Samsung Galaxy S8 could also come with an all-screen display and the latest development only but backs up this rumor. But even though this is interesting, Samsung ought to be careful to avoid a repeat of what happened with the Galaxy Note 7 by cramming a lot of power in a small-bodied device.
