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.
