Samsung introduced the Infinity Display with the Galaxy S8 earlier this year. It was a proper effort on the company’s part to introduce its flagship smartphones to the “bezel-less” club. Recent reports about the successor have suggested that it’s going to have even slimmer bezels. However, if a new rumor is believed, the Galaxy S9’s bezels may not be as slim as previously expected.

According to a source out of China, who has been right on multiple accounts in the past, one of Samsung’s design prototypes for the Galaxy S9 has not passed the test. Apparently, it was this prototype which had the slimmer bezels compared to the Galaxy S8.

If the information is accurate, it means that the Galaxy S9 is going to look largely similar to its predecessor, as far as the front of the device and its bezels are concerned.

That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though. The Galaxy S8 has one of the best designs that you can find on an Android flagship in 2017. It has been very well received so Samsung fans won’t likely be opposed to the idea of the Galaxy S9 looking similar to its predecessor.

Even the aspect ratio of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ displays is expected to remain the same as this year’s flagship handsets so there’s every reason to believe that Samsung won’t be shooting for any major design changes.

Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S9 in the first quarter of next year.
