The display is the first thing users see when turning on the phone. It also dictates the usability and design of the product. As different display technologies and design phenomenon battle for place in the phones, new aspect ratios emerge to the markets. AspectRatio

Display resolution has long been a key measure of the quality of a smartphone. The premium-tier has driven the improvements in smartphone resolutions. Increasing media consumption and gaming usage increases the importance of higher resolutions.
  • The increased consumption of all media and gaming has contributed to the need for bigger displays with better resolution.
  • Foldables are the fastest growing aspect ratio segment.
  • 4K resolution is still a niche technology.
  • 2K resolution growth has stagnated when standalone VR headsets have become more common.
  • Taller aspect ratios drive the development of new technologies such as notches, punch holes and behind display cameras and fingerprint sensors.
