Trends in the global smartphone market are constantly changing at a very intense pace. If a few years ago compact models were in vogue, today more people prefer larger screens. Currently, devices between 6 inches and 6.5 inches can be accepted as a standard for the mobile industry. Multimedia content, watching movies and playing games are the main reasons why people want a smartphone with a larger touchscreen, said Milen Ganev, a partner in the Bulgarian software company E-CARD, which is in the top 50 in Europe.
Leading manufacturers have adopted different approaches to ensure a frameless design for their users. This paved the way for Notch slots and small openings at the top of the displays, where selfie cameras and other important sensors in smartphones are positioned. According to Milen Ganev, the next logical innovation is the incorporation of the modules in the screens themselves, but this technology needs more time to gain popularity. The first smartphones with this technology showed that the quality of cameras of this type still does not meet the high expectations of consumers, commented Milen Ganev from E-CARD.
Phone manufacturers are already introducing an interesting solution called Border Reduction Structure (BRS) which can help completely remove the frames around the screen of smartphones. The first model to use BRS technology will be the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. This innovation will contribute to the slimmer dimensions, providing a larger touchscreen for multimedia, applications and games. The first smartphones based on BRS are expected to come out at the end of 2022 at the earliest.
