In the second half of this year, several Chinese manufacturers implemented the concept of a display with a high rounding angle (the so-called waterfall-screen). The advantage of this format is the visual effect of the complete absence of side frames. Samsung is already manufacturing this type of displays, this led to rumors that the next flagship of the brand, Galaxy S11, will finally change the edge-panel to a “waterfall” design. However, the famous source of leaks @UniverseIce reported that this will not happen.
Samsung will abandon the waterfall-screen in the Galaxy S11
According to the source, Samsung did test the Galaxy S11 with a waterfall screen, but at the quality control stage, it was decided to abandon this idea. The good news is that the smartphone will still get thinner frames than the Galaxy Note 10, which in turn made a leap against the background of the Galaxy S10. Also, the device should receive a high refresh rate. According to various sources, 90 or 120 Hz. An official presentation is expected in the second half of February next year.
After careful evaluation by Samsung, The Galaxy S11 series does not use a waterfall screen design, but the bezel is narrower than Note10.
