Samsung Rumored To Launch A Flat Screen Galaxy S8 Model

Samsung is still planning to launch a flat screen variant of the Galaxy S8, sources from China revealed. The South Korean tech giant has recently been rumored to ditch the standard variant of its annual flagship in favor of two larger models featuring a curved screen. While this latest rumor from the Far East dispels those previous reports, the largest phone maker in the world is said to be experimenting with numerous prototypes of the Galaxy S8, which could explain all of the conflicting reports about the device which have recently been surfacing.

The Seoul-based tech giant has been putting a lot of effort into keeping the Galaxy S8 under wraps as the company is hoping its next flagship will help it bounce back from the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco which reportedly cost Samsung billions of dollars. The company started introducing two flagship variants back in 2015 with the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge, the latter of which was succeeded by the Galaxy S6 Edge+ later in the year. This trend continued in 2016 with the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge. If the latest report from China is to be believed, Samsung will adopt a similar approach this spring by launching the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Edge.

As for the device itself, recent rumors point to a bezel-less display whose larger variant might boast over six inches. The curved version of the Galaxy S8 is also rumored to be curved on all four sides. The device will likely be powered by Samsung's Exynos 8895 system-on-chip and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 in select markets. More information will likely follow by spring as Samsung is expected to officially announce the Galaxy S8 at an exclusive event in New York City scheduled for early April. While the company traditionally unveiled its Galaxy S flagship phones at the Mobile World Congress in February, Samsung allegedly opted to push back the release of the Galaxy S8 following the discontinuation of the Galaxy Note 7. Recent reports suggest that the largest phone maker in the world wanted to use the extra time to improve its next flagship and make sure it doesn't repeat the mistakes made with the Galaxy Note 7.
