Glass smartphones are susceptible to being beaten, so Samsung strongly tests its smartphones for resistance to falls. Will the Samsung Galaxy S9 survive contact with the floor and leave it unscathed?
One of the biggest problems that brought with it the change of materials from which the smartphone is made is, without a doubt, resistance to falls. In ancient times, when phone casings were made of plastic (screen protection, moreover), the fall did not have to mean destruction. Typically, the device came out unscathed. Then came the time of glass and aluminum. Let's now look at the flagships of well-known brands: LG V30? Glass on both sides. HTC U11? Glass on both sides. iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X? Glass on both sides (in addition very expensive to replace). Xiaomi Mi6? Glass on both sides. I could go on like this, but I think I have outlined the problem. Or not, Samsung Galaxy S9 – it went from both sides. On this producer I stopped the counting list, because the network received information that allows to think that the Koreans are looking for a solution that will allow to keep the beautiful appearance of two glass panes and cheerful face of the user, which after the fall of the smartphone lifts the unbroken device. They showed the way to such technology on video, during which they "test" the resistance to contact with the ground. Although very metaphorically. The unfortunate device that has to endure this torture is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, but I'm sure the advertisement is for the Samsung Galaxy S9. Although the Koreans have a huge problem with leaks, they will not be able to show the device before the official premiere. Will the S9 be a glass smartphone that will survive the fall? This is what we will learn on February 25. Source: androidheadlines
