All of the leaked renders, photos, and videos of the Galaxy S8 that we’ve seen so far suggest that the handset is going to have very slim bezels. Not just that, since it won’t even have a proper home button, it would mean that the device will basically look like a big slab of glass from the front. According to a new report, Samsung feels the need to give this drastic change in appearance a trademarked name, so it has filed a trademark application for the term “Infinity Display.” That’s what it’s reportedly going to call the Galaxy S8’s display.
Samsung has filed for a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office to protect the “Infinity Display” moniker. The document was filed on February 24th, 2017.
The trademark filing doesn’t reveal much about the purpose for which this brand would be used so since this isn’t the first time we’ve heard of Infinity Display being used to refer to the Galaxy S8’s screen, it’s possible that this is what Samsung wants to call it. It was reported several weeks ago that the Galaxy S8 would feature a nearly bezel-less edge-to-edge “Infinity Display.”
We won’t know for sure, though, until Samsung makes the official announcement at its event for the Galaxy S8 which is scheduled to take place in New York and London on March 29th. It’s expected to launch two models of the next flagship, the Galaxy S8 with a 5.8 inch display and the Galaxy S8 Plus with a truly massive 6.2 inch display.
