Ahead of the release of the next flagship device in the Google Pixel series, the tech company has been rumored to be planning on bringing major design changes to its upcoming devices.
This comes on the heels of backlash the tech company received on the Google Pixel and Pixel XL release which fans and tech enthusiasts along with analysts believed that the tech company could have done more regarding design.
The latest report, however, indicated that Google is planning on bringing the display to the next line of the Pixel smartphone series which was confirmed to be coming under the fish type codename just as in the earlier released smartphones.
The tech company which had already promised its fans that the devices will hit the market later in the year is adding the more premium look to its device range as it has been revealed to be planning to invest as much as $880 million in the LG Display to secure the OLED screens for the next line of smartphones.
Reports which surfaced online from Korea however noted that should LG agree to terms of the tech company and accept its offer; Google might be getting a whole lot of supply from the tech company’s end in the making of its upcoming smartphone.
Recall that the earlier released Google Pixel and the Pixel XL came into the market with the AMOLED screens made by Samsung and although it made do for display, the tech giant, Google, looks to be unsatisfied with the outcome of its last flagship devices and thus opted for its major competitor, LG Display.
Reports, however, indicated that Google’s move might be connected with the fact that Samsung recently went into a deal with another tech Giant, Apple in the production of 70 million bendable OLED Displays for its next iPhone 8.
The move, however, suggests that Google is planning on sticking to its promise of releasing the upcoming device into the market this year and thus would like to avoid every possible form of delay especially as Samsung will be handling massive production for Apple in the coming months.
Interestingly, Google isn’t just gunning for the OLED screens as the tech company looks to be adding a little icing on the cake by purchasing the flexible curved OLED screens or the device which will be launch in the market before the end of 2017. Google looks to be interested in bringing its latest device with dual curved screens which are most important for safety.
Recall that Samsung’s smartphones which featured the dual displays have become so popular that this year’s Galaxy S8 lineup does not include a variant with a flat screen but all curved displays.
The report further indicated that the tech company, Samsung, is bent on ditching the flat screens for curved screens across all other devices to be released into the market.
