The announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 shows that we may be beginning to see a move away from displays with the traditional widescreen display, with a 16:9 aspect ratio. The Samsung Galaxy S8 has an 18.5:9 aspect ratio, while the LG G6 has an 18:9 ratio.
Given that two very popular Android flagships have committed to these new wider displays, there is a chance that we could see other manufacturers go down this road too. One of the big issues with these displays, is that there is not enough native content shot in 18:9 to take advantage of them. This means that most videos will result in borders on the left and right of the video.
Regardless, of this, would you like to see Sony adopt a similar display on an upcoming Xperia smartphone. Do you see it as inevitable that Sony will use such an aspect ratio in the future? We would love to hear your thoughts below. In the meantime, check out some concept images of such a device from designer Victor Cao below.
