Samsung may ditch flat-screened Galaxy S smartphones

Samsung may be planning to ditching flat-screen versions of its Galaxy S series of flagship phones. In an interview with The Korea Herald, the Head of Samsung Mobile, Koh Dong-Jin said, “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).”

Samsung has launched an Edge variant alongside a flat-screened variant of its flagship S-series of phones ever since the Samsung Galaxy S6. But judging by Dong-Jin’s comments, we might see only one curved screen variant of the Galaxy S8 next year. The company might already be testing the waters with the recently launched Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which is only available in a curved screen variant. Samsung also said that the sales of the Galaxy S7 Edge exceed those of the  flat-screened version.

Such a move should help streamline Samsung’s flagship lineup of phones. The company currently has two flagship lineups, the S series and the Note series. Further, previous reports have suggested that the company may launch as many as five flagship devices next year including a new lineup called the Galaxy X. The new device is tipped to come with a foldable display, something that the company has been working on for a while.
