In early 2017, Samsung and LG launched their respective flagship smartphones with the 18:9 displays. In very short span, the all-screen displays with lower resolution are also adapted for budget smartphones. LG introduced the new Q-series mid-range smartphones with Full HD+ display offering 18:9 aspect ratio. As of now, most of the major manufacturers have launched at least one smartphone with an 18:9 display. OnePlus is rumored to unveil the OnePlus 5T or the all-new OnePlus 6 with the same 18:9 display.
Even OPPO is teasing the mid-range OPPO F5 smartphone with the FullView display offering longer 18:9 aspect ratio. Today, the company has officially announced the launch date of the OPPO F5 as October 26th. As of now, there is information whether it will be a global launch or just limited to the Philippines.
