    Most likely. Hopefully that helped them fix the light bleed present on the note 8 where the glass meets the frame.

    That article calls it a nasty surprise but is it really that big of a deal? Maybe it's because I keep my phone in a case 24/7.

    All Forbes does is clickbait lazy articles. I'm sure the intent of 'nasty surprise' is to get more clicks.

    Avoid accidental touches.
    Higher durability.
    Looks more flat (I'm the picture, haven't saw in real life).
    At least it's not a top notch, unibrow.
    Function over fashion is a Note trademark.
    Easier to hold.

    Forbes seems to be at the top of my Google feed more often than not with a Samsung article. Most days, the title is the same. But, they make it look like it was posted that day. Them and BGR seem to sensationalize everything Samsung.
    Sure enough, I open my Google feed and there it is.

    Yep, me too. I can't handle that huge bezel it has now, just pitiful.

    Saw this pop up in my Google News feed this morning, and was the final straw that resulted in me blocking anything from Forbes to be in my feed. The Clickbait bonanza they have become is really kind of impressive. Seems like anyone can write for their online channels.

    Slightly less sharp display edges and Mo' battery. Bonus being a little more bezel to make the phone more user friendly. Win win win!

    For usability it's a bonus.

    Woot! That's awesome, the edge screen is annoying to hold, hopefully this means less phantom touches.

    Forbes is about on par with BGR now. Click bait. Don’t give them the page views ..

    Apple propagandists.

    Seriously, anyone that actually used the Note 8 would be happy with more area that’s not display. It kind of sucked IMO.

    Exactly. Forbes, BGR, etc. should all be completely ignored.

    This. I believe it has even been mentioned in a couple of initial reviews or even at the unpacked event as a design change to make it easier to handle the phone.

    I'm not gonna give them the click, but I bet they failed to mention that the Note 9 is also slightly wider than the Note 8 which allows the same screen and makes up for the difference in bezel size.
