Samsung thinking about ending production of flat-screened Galaxy S flagship phones?
Before Samsung decides how to approach the Samsung Galaxy S8, it will watch to see how demand shapes up for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The high-end phablet comes in just one version and that is a model with a dual-edged screen. If the buyers are there for the Note 7, and there is no large contingent of consumers complaining about the lack of a flat-screened model, it would certainly seem like 2017 would be a good time to offer just one Galaxy S8 model with a curved-edge screen.
One analyst somewhat agrees with that statement, saying that if the market response to the Note 7's curved-edge display is positive, Samsung will likely decide to eliminate the flat-screened Galaxy S models in the near future. This expert just doesn't see Samsung in a rush to get rid of the flat screen starting with next year's flagship phone.
