Report: Samsung's one curved screen phone next year will be a Galaxy S7 model

According to the report, there will be just one "edge" handset released by Samsung next year, and it will be part of the Samsung Galaxy S7 line. Samsung put the change into motion this year, when it decided to use the Galaxy S6 for its curved screen devices. There seems to be some truth to this as rumors have already circulated about two different versions of the Galaxy S7 that are currently being tested. One has a 5.2-inch screen, and the other carries a 5.8-inch display. The latter would probably be the new curved screen model for 2016.
If this is true, and Samsung drops the smaller screened "edge" model, it leaves just one question. Will it call the device with the 5.8-inch curved glass the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, or the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge+?
Thanks for the tip!

"Last year, all of the curved screen handsets released by Samsung came from the Samsung Galaxy S6 line." Last year? Come back to 2015 iPhoneArena, we're not done yet...

If the edge is reserved for the larger models then adding the + would be redundant. It wouldn't be the worst naming scheme though. For example, a Simple Nexus X and Nexus P sounds light years better than 5x and 6p.

Yeah, companies should start dropping the numbers and simply call them their brand names. Nexus X, Nexus P, Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Galaxy Note, Apple iPhone, etc sound so much better. Plus when they start getting up to the double digits, they'll sound pretty bad.

I hope the screen will go all the way to the back of the phone at last. Samsung already patented such a design: http://www.phonearena.com/news
