A Korean report exhibits that the Galaxy S8 model with 5.1 and 5.5-inch edge screen is coming soon. After proposing a more complex edge screen in the Galaxy Note 7, In future, Samsung might produce completely flat screen models in its next generation Galaxy S phones. According to the news from the Korea reporter, Galaxy S8 might have the curved screens, at the same size 5.1 and 5.5 inches as the GS7.
Sources said the company has already started securing display panels in two sizes — 5.1-inch and 5.5-inch — from its own display-making unit Samsung Display, the world’s sole producer of double-edged screens.
Sources said that the Company uses its own display making unit Samsung Display to the secure display panel in two sizes 5.1 and 5.5-inch Display making unit Samsung Display is the world’s sole producer of double edged screens. As enhancement in the return rates of the hard to make displays is the key factor. The outlet’s states:
“In a world where both GS8 models have curved screens, would the ‘edge’ brand go away?
The prospect of Samsung going all-edge for both Galaxy S8 models raises a couple of interesting questions. Firstly, the “edge” monicker would become largely meaningless, so perhaps we’d be looking at a Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus instead. But the bigger question is just how edgy these edge screens are. There’s a big difference between the curvaceous GS7 edge and the slightly boxier Note 7, the latter having much tighter curves that are far less visible at a distance. Any possible combination of edgy and not-so-edgy is possible.”
I explored the possibility of an edge-only future for the Galaxy S8 line in a recent editorial:
“It’s really hard to differentiate in the high-end space, and Samsung, with its curved SuperAMOLED panels, is in a unique position to offer one of the most eye-catching smartphone design features in years. People didn’t buy the Galaxy S6 edge because they wanted to swipe in and launch apps a bit more quickly, or because they wanted to measure stuff. They bought it because it looked cool, and it looked cool in a way that no other phone could match. The success of the original S6 edge reportedly took even Samsung by surprise, and as such it was the S7 edge that took center stage in this year’s lineup. Ads promoted the “Galaxy S7 edge / S7,with the flat S7 consistently playing second fiddle to its larger sibling in the public eye.”
It’s also been reported that the Galaxy S8 could rise up to a 4K display, in what would be a first for Samsung and a huge risk on the future of VR. Although a jerk to Ultra HD resolutions would take its own challenges in terms of performance and battery life, and’s possible Samsung might support Sony’s lead and only run in the true 4K mode in a some of the apps.
Although, curved screens all around and a huge jump in pixel density could be what Samsung needs to keep up energy after the iPhone 7 launch.
