The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has not yet been released yet, but it is already talking about the Samsung Galaxy S9 that would be launched in 2018. Again, it would launch a Samsung Galaxy S9 and a Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, but in both cases would have A Y-OCTA screen.
Samsung Galaxy S9 with Y-OCTA screen
The new Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus would feature 5.8 and 6.2 inch screens with Quad HD + resolution and Super AMOLED technology. That is, they would have the same screen as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. Although in the case of the new version of smartphones would have a screen Y-OCTA. We cannot even say that it is a new screen, because the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has already launched with a screen Y-OCTA. However, it seems that it was impossible for the Samsung Display division to manufacture enough Y-OCTA screens for the Samsung Galaxy S8. However, the Samsung Galaxy S9 would have a Y-OCTA screen.
Will they have superior image quality? No, not really. Y-OCTA screens do not have superior picture quality. Actually, the screen of a smartphone is composed by an AMOLED panel, which is the one that generates the image, and a digitizer, which is the one that turns the screen into a touch. However, a Y-OCTA screen is a screen in which both the touch panel and the AMOLED panel are a single panel. In this way, the cost of the screen is lower.
But not only the mobile would be cheaper to manufacture for Samsung, but this would also be relevant in case the mobile receives a blow that breaks the screen, as buying a new screen and install it will be more economical.
However, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 would be launched on August 23, and there is a possible launch date for the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, although it is likely to be in February or March 2018. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could also have a Y-OCTA screen, although the truth is that until now has not claimed that will have this screen. Perhaps because of the fact that many screens have to be produced for the Samsung Galaxy S9, and that they have already begun to manufacture the screens of the new smartphone, a standard AMOLED screen has been installed on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
