The next design of mobile phone is coming to trend in 2019. It will be full screen bezel-less design without notch! Yay for notch-less phones!







**note that these are rumours only but I think the trend will definitely get picked up by more and more phone manufacturers.

I think 2019 we will see 2 major design which is full bezel-less screen with no ports. In screen finger print and possibly in screen camera. Another major concept will be the foldable phone coming with it's first gen design. I hope someone is designing something like the foldable screen in Westworld.

OLED screens are expensive to replace. Most of the time, it is not work replacing the screen because it will cost around the price of just getting a used phone of similar model.

For example, a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (used) will cost around RM400-RM500 in Malaysia. A new OLED screen will cost RM450 and above. This is not even including the workmanship. This is not worth the repair because if I am a user, I will get a used Note 4 and then sell my old phone as parts. That is assuming I want to keep using Note 4.

Whereas for LCD, it will be more feasible. An iPhone 6s LCD screen would cost like less than RM100. A used iPhone 6s is being sold for around RM600 for a 16GB model in Malaysia.

Therefore, right now the only reasonable repair for OLED screens is replacing just the cracked outer screen. That is not an easy job as it deals with remove the screen and the glue. Re-applying the glue itself is another complicated feat that have high potential of screwing up the repair.

What you guys think?

Definitely one of the easiest way to repair cracked screen as you do not need to change the whole LCD. However, the freezer unit is not cheap! You have to repair lots and lots of screen to be able to make back the cost.
