Curious: Samsung to remove its logo from the front of Galaxy S7 / edge units sold in China and South Korea

The phone actually look much better that way. Also the reason why I like the silver colour the best

Perhaps Samsung is looking to reduce their top bezels even further but not having in logo on the front. They're testing the waters to see if this impact sales and perhaps in future models have no logo and reduced top bezel. I think this is a great idea and only have Samsung at the back.

Definitely would prefer no branding on the front of phones, but I don't see how it would impact sales in South Korea though.
Maybe they're just testing it to see what effect it has, if any.

So much diversity with these phones. No logos here, logos there, heat pipes here no heat pipes there, different processers in this country vs that country. Lol.

They all got heat pipes on both CPUs and all phomes, it's used the the gear VR so you can use it longer without overheating, samsung as said this is why it was used

Gotta love Samsung. Guess the fandroids in previous articles had false info, as always. Thanks for the info tho

This is stupid considering the Box still has the Samsung logo on it. People will still know they are buying a Samsung. The phone don't come in a white box unmarked.
Seems weirdly stupid.
If you so worried, dont even sell a phone in China. Let them buy cheap knock-offs which si about what most can afford anyways.
Samsung doesn't need china.

"...far East." -PA (Paul K.)
far East? You actually mean Far East.
It's pathetic that PA continues to butcher the American-English language by using these foreign writers. Might as well start writing in Bulgarian.

I am one that doesn't care if the branding in on my phone. I have the white note 5 and the silver Samsung barely show anyway.

You don't have to be a genius to figure out that people would rather NOT have a Chinese phone.

On my white Galaxy S5 the silver Samsung lettering are basically invisible to me because it just doesn't stand out, unlike HTC of course which seems to take up half the phone.

Great... Now make it universal... Seriously... This is the best design move after the invention of edge screen... Without the logo it looks more clean and refined.

If you gave me the choice I'm not sure how I'd feel about it. Never been bothered by the logo.

I'd pay any phone company an extra 25 bucks for a no logo handset.

They should apply the same here in the US.
Why can't Sammie do everything at once? why are they so scared? or what's causing the delay? i think just removing the samsung from the front will boost sales.

Sammy shouldn´t do that,the logo looks pretty cool, i like it.

Everyone knows the brand, Samsung. No need to raise brand awareness with the logo on the phones.

The iPhone doesn't say "Apple" on the front.

I would think their country would be proud instead of acting childish, they should be ashamed of themselves !
