Full-screen display experience

The Google Pixel 3 XL features an amazing 6.3-megapixel big screen that fills almost the entire front of the phone, with its colour-rich display stretching edge-to-edge to the curved corners. Thanks to the high-resolution OLED screen technology, blacks are deeper – and power consumption is lower. And Colour Management automatically switches to the proper colour gamut so your images appear with the correct colours, never over- or under-saturated.

The largest iPhone screen ever

iPhone XS Max features Apple’s largest screen to date. The gorgeous 6.5-inch edge-to-edge OLED display takes up almost the whole front of the phone – with rounded corners that follow a beautifully curved design. Create even more amazing portraits with adjustable depth of field and watch them come to life in vivid colour on the Super Retina Display.

Huawei Mate 20 lite

Do more and see more with the Huawei Mate 20 lite and it’s 6.3” Full HD+ display. With a 3700 mAh battery and Huawei’s Quick Charge fast charging, you can keep going for hours and hours. An advanced dynamic resource allocation system provides power where it’s needed most. Combine this with a highly capable AI function that can enhance your photographs, organise your gallery and provide impeccable gaming performance, and the Huawei Mate 20 lite checks all the boxes.     

The edge-to-edge experience

Introducing Samsung’s largest Infinity Display yet, the Galaxy Note9 is powerful enough to keep up with you. You’ll experience a nearly bezel-less view, thanks to the immersive 6.4-inch Super AMOLED screen and hidden sensors.
