Samsung hints that there could be no flat-screen Galaxy S phone in future

Samsung hints that there could be no flat-screen Galaxy S phone in future

 

With the launch of the Galaxy Note7, it seems that the days of the flat-screen Galaxy flagship smartphones may be over.

According to The Korea Herald, Samsung reportedly stated that it would focus more on smartphones with curved displays in the future. This could be a hint that flat-screen Galaxy S smartphones will eventually be removed from the lineup. 

“Samsung has considered that it would make the edge display as the identity of the Galaxy S smartphone lineup if the company can provide consumers differentiated user experience through software and user-friendly functions (for the curved screen),” said Koh Dong-jin, the head of the tech giant’s mobile business, in a media interview in New York last week.

The Galaxy S7 edge has been estimated by Strategy Analytics to be the best selling Android smartphone in the first half of this year although the Galaxy S7 is not far behind in third position. Judging from how Samsung prides itself on giving consumers plenty of choices with its smartphones, we reckon that it is unlikely to remove a flat-screen Galaxy S flagship model anytime soon.
