#1 Google Wants The Developers To Ensure The Apps Work With 18:9 Aspect Ratio
Recently, both LG G6 and Galaxy S8 introduced larger aspect ratios for their displays. LG G6 has 18:9 aspect ratio and Galaxy S8 has 18.5:9 screen size. Google wants app developers to make apps that fit the new ratio. The current standard ratio of 16:9 which works for all the devices doesn’t work for these two. In an official blog, Google says, “In order to take full advantage of the larger display formats on these devices, you should consider increasing your app’s maximum supported aspect ratio.” Google is supporting the aspect change and we are more likely to see more devices with these new screen sizes in future.
