In 2017 the word “full screen” has slowly become a synonym for higher than ordinary screen-to-body ratio phones. An high screen-to-body ratio usually means a more immersive viewing experience. So, if you’re taking pictures or playing games, there are almost no borders between your screen and the real world on the other side, which is what produces that immersive feeling.
A more immersive viewing experience is what Elephone are trying to bring with the upcoming Elephone S9 as well. The company did indeed reduce upper and lower bezels to bring the screen to body ratio to around 89.9%. They say that even a 0.1% increase in screen-to-body-ratio requires a lot of careful design and crafting. In addition to that, the S9 also comes with a flexible AMOLED screen and curved frame, both designed for an improved immersive experience.
The Elephone S9 is said to be coming very soon, with specs going from the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 CPU, to NFC and wireless charging. Stay tuned on GizChina as we find out more about the device.
