Are you a fan of the curved or Edge displays by Samsung? If not so, then you better start getting used to them because Samsung might not make flat screen variants for its future Galaxy S smartphones. In the words of Koh Dong-jin, who is the president of Samsung Mobiles,

"Samsung has considered that it would make the Edge display as the identity of the Galaxy S smartphone line-up if the company can provide consumers differentiated user experience through software and user-friendly functions (for the curved screen)."

We are pretty much sure that the reception and sales of the newly released Galaxy Note 7 with dual curved display will play a very important role in determining the future of the Galaxy S8. As no flat screen Note 7 variants were released this year, if this move turns out to be a success, the S8 may very well, follow the same trend next year. Even if they do not eliminate the flat display completely by 2017, the focus will definitely shift onto the Edge displays, provided the Note 7 manages to satisfy the customers as much as Samsung hopes it will.

Just when it was almost confirmed that there will be no flat screen versions of the Note 7 this year, but only a single device that will sport a dual Edge display, new photos have surfaced that suggest otherwise. The photos show the device to have a flat back as well, unlike the Galaxy S7 regular, which has a curved back. We can also see the USB Type-C port, connected to a USB Type-C cable. If you look carefully, you can actually see the iris scanner too.

If you like the flat version seen in these pics and would like to buy one, we have bad news for you unfortunately. In all probability, the Note 7 will only sport a dual Edge display this year. While these images prove that the flat screen version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 does exist, it will possibly not be marketed to the public. In fact, this is actually a prototype and will remain only at that stage for now. The curved Note 7 however, is going to be unveiled on August 2, equipped with a Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4GB/6GB of RAM and the same camera setup (12-megapixel/5-megapixel) as the S7 series.

As far as rumors and leaks are concerned, everything is pointing towards Samsung shutting down the traditional flat screen variants of their flagship smartphones with the Galaxy S8. However, these rumors have sparked quite a bit of controversy among fans and experts alike. Some of the customers are of the opinion that a phone sporting a curved display is inconvenient as unintentional inputs from touching the curved sides of the display can be irritating. Some industry veterans agree to this point and even go on to add that a bezel-less display isn't actually that remarkable on a phone as the size of the panel can never be big enough to matter.

In spite of the truth in these arguments, one cannot deny that the dual curved S7 Edge does look a lot better than the regular S7 and that aesthetic appeal is going to reach new heights when Samsung couples that with the rumoured bezel-less or all-screen design. If the Korean giant can improve upon the palm rejection tech for the "Edges," there's very little that one can say against the design. Are you excited about the rumoured 6.2-inch QHD Super AMOLED bezel-less dual curved display on the S8 Plus? Or would you prefer if Samsung stuck with a traditional flat screen for the regular Galaxy S8?

iTunes 12




Today, Apple has released a new public beta for the OS X Yosemite with a new iTunes version and quite a few changes.


The Yosemite OS X public beta 2 is essentially the same as the developer preview 6 that was released earlier this week. It has several design changes, including new iconography throughout the UI (nothing you saw until now was finalized and things keep changing in the betas), new wallpapers, and some other bug fixes and general improvements.

Along with pushing the beta 2, Apple also released iTunes 12 for Yosemite. The new app has a redesigned UI that looks more flattened version of the iTunes on Mavericks and more like a new app.
