SCREEN RATIO EXPLAINED​​​​​​​
The evolution of smartphones aren't limited to its looks, but also with its ever-changing aspect ratios. 2018 in Mobile World Congress is the year of notch and bezel-less displays. Smartphones are starting to adapt the new 18:9 format, leaving behind the standard 16:9.
But the question remains: "What is it in for me if I have a 18:9 phone? And why are there so many aspect ratios?" 
In collaboration with Luigi Leonardo and GadgetMatch, let's take a trip down to memory lane:​​​​​​​
Featured image for the Screen Ratio Explainer.
The different aspect ratios known to many starting from 1:1, 4:3, 16:9, and 18:9.
The adaptation of the 4:3 standard from film to television.
16:9 is the aspect ratio we've all used for so many formats and platform, created as a standard for the ever-changing aspect ratios.
70mm is the current cinema standard.
The compromise between the 16:9 and the 70mm cinema standard, the Univisium film format, which is now known as 18:9.
Smartphones from all around the world are now adapting to this new format, and getting an 18:9 phone means you're future-proof.
