Samsung Galaxy S9 To Use SLP Mainboard

As of now, this is the only information available, however, it is still over a year away from the flagship's launch so more leaks are expected to come before its release. Corresponding manufacturers are now bringing in equipment that are needed for production. The same report claims that preparations have begun already and manufacturers are now bringing in the equipment required by the new mainboard manufacturing technology. Samsung's approach to the matter is to use a Substrate-like PCB which will let it reduce the size of the main board, making way for a bigger battery. According to insiders familiar with the inner workings of the South Korean giant, this next-gen flagship will be able to pack a larger battery without an increased width thanks to a new mainboard manufacturing technology. It is also expected that the "soon to be released" iPhone will be taking advantage of the same technology because it too will feature an edge-to-edge glass and near bezel-less form factor. Especially South Korean main board manufacturers are likely to be affected harsher than manufacturers from other countries due to this decision made by Samsung Electronics. Two of the world's largest smartphone vendors (Samsung and Apple) switching to SLP will leave many suppliers scrambling to catch up with the technological developments.

Their first stop is Kuwait, the state that has so far attempted mediating the conflict, without any success. Qatar has denied the accusations and called the collective decision "unjustified".

It is heard that there are actually about 10 companies that are now supplying HDI to Samsung Electronics. When mass production and supply begin in earnest, the companies will show a clear switch of fortunes. Well, the source does say that Samsung will equip the Exynos versions of the S9 with the space-saving PCB tech, though not because its suppliers don't have the capacity, but rather since the versions with Qualcomm chipsets has "technical difficulties" to use the advanced system boards, at least for now. Since there is a gap in technology, the company will still use the HDI in models that use Qualcomm's AP. However it is predicted that application of SLP will quickly expand once initial introduction phase of SLP passes by. The so-called Y-OCTA display doesn't need a touch screen panel (TSP). This is why the touch screen industry is also in an extremely precarious state. As Samsung's demand for the TSP will disappear, the related component and material market is expected to shrink.
