In reality, however, Samsung could be paying a lot more to build the Galaxy S9 Plus than Apple forks out for the iPhone X. We'll never know - that is, of course, unless both manufacturers agree to make their ledgers accessible to the public.

According to Kuo, Samsung needs to address issues related to power consumption and the accuracy of sensors working with screen protectors or in other conditions.

It's a odd idea, even by Samsung's standards, and we've no idea if such a device could actually work in reality. Good thing, then, that Samsung offered to send us a couple cases for our Galaxy S9 Plus review unit.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will indeed have Infinity Display with thinner bezels, something it has widely been praised for. That is for the camera, fingerprint reader and flash module that is on the back.
