Galaxy Note 10 screen aspect ratio grows just a little bit

Earlier this year, Sony made a rather bold move to put an extra tall/extra wide 21:9 screen on its "reborn" Xperia 1, something the Motorola One Vision might copy. Samsung also seems to be heading in that direction, though, thankfully, not to the extreme just yet.

Motorola One Vision leak leaves nothing to the imagination

Naturally, we're all just hanging on to whatever mid-range or even entry-level product it is rumored to have in the works.
