Samsung has shown that the screen size can be treacherous. Few people pay attention to one thing

Has Samsung just launched its smallest smartphone in years? Oh no.

An alternative variant of the Samsung Galaxy A23 5G has just debuted on the Japanese market, which has a 5.8-inch screen. This event gained a lot of publicity also outside Japan, because such values ​​are rare nowadays. For comparison, the version available in Poland has a 6.6-inch screen.

The screen size of the new Samsung is treacherous

The display may be – for today’s time – extremely small, but the whole phone is not necessarily. Let’s take a look at the comparison of the two Samsungs:

  • Japanese Galaxy A23 5G (5.8 inches) – 151 x 71 x 9 mm;
  • Galaxy S22 (6,1 cala) – 146 x 70,6 x 7,6 mm.

On paper, the difference between the screens looks really big. In practice, however, the front of the 5.8-inch Samsung is over 3 percent. larger than the 6.1-inch flagship. The frames, which are exceptionally large in the A23, play a key role in the entire structure.

As you can see, when choosing a smartphone, it is worth looking at the dimensions of the phone, not just the diagonal of the display. This one is treacherous.

When it comes to smartphone screen sizes, Japan is an alternative universe

And yet this trend has nothing to do with Japan, where a screen with a diagonal of less than 6 inches is perceived as a great advantage. This demand is met mainly by local producers. Mainly Sony, which develops the budget Xperia Ace line on the domestic market.

A year ago, a local toaster manufacturer made a sensation in the Land of the Rising Sun by releasing its first smartphone – Balmuda Phone. The diagonal of its display is only 4.9 inches.

These are also other examples of smartphones with screens of treacherous sizes. Due to the different proportions, the Balmuda Phone’s 4.9-inch display physically has a larger surface area than the iPhone 13 mini’s 5.4-inch panel.
