The new fashion of 2017 is obviously frameless designs that say goodbye to the borders of the phone and bring the screens to the fore. But this new fashion also pushes a new trend…
The appearance of the 18: 9 ratio on smartphones, of course. Recently, Samsung introduced the new Galaxy S8 and S8+, both with ultra-thin 18.5:9 ratio Infinity Displays. But these pose a problem.
Developers should adapt to 18:9, according to Google
Apps available in the Play Store may not be compatible with these new rates! Therefore, viewing an app on one of the Galaxy S8 or LG G6’s large screens causes bars to appear at the top and bottom of the screen, killing all their attention.
That’s why today Google decided to encourage developers to consider these new formats and ensure their apps are compatible. published for this a few guidelines on the official website.
And rightly so, since the Galaxy S8 and LG G6 are certain to be only the first in a long line of phones with this rating.
The fact that Google is pushing developers so fast also gives us a clue… Would the manufacturer have plans for a similar rate for the future Google Pixel 2? If developers adopt these guidelines now, most apps will be ready by the end of the year they’re released… No smoke without fire.
