Samsung is said to be planning on offering larger screens on its next–generation Galaxy S8 smartphones, as it looks to entice customers disappointed by the failure of the Galaxy Note 7.
Sources in Korea claim that Samsung will offer two variants of the phone: one with a 5.5–inch display and another with a huge 6.2–inch screen. The latter is likely to be a curved screen model, possibly dubbed the Galaxy S8 Edge.
Samsung’s current Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge phones have 5.1–inch and 5.5–inch screens respectively.
Despite including larger displays, insiders claim that Samsung will ensure the Galaxy S8 is around the same size as its existing models, thanks to new, edge–to–edge screen technology.
It’s also been rumoured that the devices will take advantage of Samsung’s new 10 nanometre chips, which offer greater power and better energy efficiency compared with older components.
The same report claims that Samsung will reveal the Galaxy S8 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next February, before releasing the device in March. The device is said to go into testing in January.
