The launching of the new generation of smartphones with wider screens creates a new kind of problems with the software ecosystem and Google tells developers to optimize their apps for 2:1 screen ratio.

There are already three smartphones with wider screens LG G6, Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus with bigger resolution and an unusual screen ratio, so the developers need to adjust to new trend in the smartphone market.

“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,” says a new post on the Android Developers blog,”we recommend that you design your app to support aspect ratios of 2:1 or higher.”
