Only a curved screen version of the Galaxy Note 7 was released, and the flagship S range could follow suit.
Samsung Mobile President Dong-jin Koh told The Korea Herald, "Samsung has considered that it would make the edge display the identity of the Galaxy S smartphone lineup." Some are taking this to mean that Samsung could soon move away from flat-screened smartphones.
However, before that can happen, Koh believes that Samsung needs to provide different user experiences through the Edge screen.
This approach is also being applied to Project Valley, Samsung’s heavily rumoured foldable smartphone. "We need more time to provide meaningful innovations and convenience considering the current status of technology" Koh told The Korea Times. "We need serious changes in software and user experience to build foldable smartphones and this will certainly take time."
