- Page 9: Wrapping up the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) review
The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) comes with a beautiful 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display with Samsung’s pioneering 18.5:9 aspect ratio and has 2220×1080 pixels in resolution. Obviously, the Super AMOLED displays are as vivid and vibrant as its Galaxy S and Galaxy Note brethren too.
The display is nothing short of amazing, to say the least. Even for a mid-range smartphone, Samsung packed their best smartphone display into it. Same goes for the Galaxy A7 (2018) too, actually.
The obvious different here – as mentioned earlier – is the lack of any edge curvatures a la its high-end cousins. It does, however, have the same rounded corners like the Galaxy A7 (2018), the Galaxy S9, and also the Galaxy Note9.
Since Samsung has avoided notched display once again for the Galaxy A9 (2018), the screen-to-body ratio is lower compared to other smartphones with notched display in the market. This ultimately goes down to personal preference.
Does the notch bother you? For me, it depends. Waterdrop notches are okay, and a slew of smartphones with circular cutouts are coming early next year.
