LG G7 leak shows a phone that could have the best screen-to-body ratio of 2018

After several years where the biggest trend smartphone design was bigger displays, manufacturers finally started to rein things in last year. Rather than simply continue to build even more gigantic phones, companies began to focus on narrowing bezels and therefore increasing screen-to-body ratios. As a result, we’ve seen a number of more compact handsets that still have nice big displays. And as an added bonus, reducing the amount of empty space around a smartphone’s screen results in a much more immersive user experience since there’s less surrounding the display to draw away the user’s attention.

The “all-screen” design trend is going to continue in 2018. In fact, it looks like some smartphone makers are going to release phones with even narrower bezels. We know Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S9 won’t be among them since it’s going to use the same design as last year’s Galaxy S8, and it looks like that may have created a huge opportunity for the upcoming LG G7.
