Samsung recently unveiled its flagships - the Galaxy S9 and S9+ at the MWC 2018. Since the devices haven't changed much over their precursors, it is hard to believe that the devices are already running into some display issues, considering the previous generation devices were relatively free from such issues.

The reports

The new Galaxy S9/S9+ users are noticing dead zones on their phone's screen, especially the S9+ users. This doesn't seem to be a hardware-related issue. Many users have reported that different areas on the screen, some on the top, while some on the bottom. Most of the reports involve the bigger variant, but there are few reports that involve the S9 as well.

Users have complained about the loss of functionality. It becomes worse if the dead zones appear on the virtual keyboard. According to a Reddit user, the unresponsive spots affect the ‘E', ‘R', and ‘T' letters on Gboard.
This isn't the first time touchscreen issues have surfaced.

Earlier OnePlus faced similar issues with its devices. Samsung is yet to address the issue and chose to be mum on the matter. Sadly, the users who did replace their device reported that the replacements also exhibit the same issues.

New patents

Samsung has been long rumored to be working on a foldable smartphone. Many foldable devices have been patented and scrapped more times than we can remember. This may be an indication that foldable phones might not be the future - maybe expandable phones are. The South Korean manufacturer has now filed a patent for a smartphone display that expands when pulled from the sides. The smartphone might double as a tablet.

The new patent suggests that the system will comprise of three panels. Only the main display will be visible in the 'phone mode.' To expand the screen, users will have to grab the sides and pull the device outward. This will unroll two more display sitting on either side increasing the real estate.
