Rumor: Galaxy S7 edge and edge Plus variants could launch at the same time

With all the hype Samsung has created around curved displays this year, it’s a surefire guarantee that the Galaxy S7 will also come in a variant that features a curved screen. It was recently rumored that Samsung might not release a regular flat screen model and simply launch the curved screen variant worldwide, and the source of that rumor is now suggesting that the Galaxy S7 will come in two different screen sizes at the same time.

Both variants, despite the varying screen sizes, will have a curved display according to Samsung Viet. It doesn’t exactly sound far-fetched, and it would mean that both a standard and a super-sized Plus variant would come out at the same time. It’s likely to raise an outcry from Samsung fans about the company following in Apple’s footsteps even more seriously next year, but for Samsung it would certainly be a good move, especially since launching a Galaxy S7 Edge Plus in early 2016 would allow it to concentrate on the Galaxy Note 6 during the latter half of the year.

Our own insiders haven’t said anything to support this rumor, and while we aren’t that far away from the rumored January launch of the Galaxy S7, a lot of things can change by the time the phone is ready for release. What do you think about Samsung launching an edge and edge Plus variant of the Galaxy S7 at the same time?

It will be launching at the same time, true story, not just a rumour! At the same time with S8, S9, S10 and their Edge, +, – and * versions!
Insider info!

Curved screen? no thanks, useless and inconvenient

Good but perhaps some Khvshshvn Nyad and sing flat and I was looking for the patents entering the real world icon ( true )

If no Ir blaster and no microSD from their part, no money from mine.

Samsung are jus trying to change their flagship dates. From March to January, and from September to August.
They can’t wait 2 years so they have to do it earlier than usual. I don’t believe that the S6 edge+ will be left behind.

I am in tension, whenever I read a post regarding s7, I feel like my s6 edge plus is now outdated phone, now I have to buy s7. 🙁

Actually we don’t care about them releasing the Note 6 next year, we care about them “fixing” the Note 5 (they do this, by making a good Galaxy S7, in 5.8″ – then it’s a note ……… sans the pen)

Make the S7 edge have less features and include them in edge plus.

Better move on.

You’re just as evil as Samsung. The world doesn’t orbit around you.

I just posted a comment but it doesn’t show here. I’ll write my thoughts again just in case. 1. Releasing a s7 edge and edge + is a good idea. The s6 edge proved to be far more popular whether it’s a gimmick or not. Only price should be lower. Samsung needs to forget about this war price with apple even if Samsung’s devices are indeed better. 2. Samsung shouldn’t make them thinner on the contrary they should be slightly thicker with a bigger battery of no less than 3800 mAH if it’s reluctant to bring the removable battery feature… Read more »

Should be cheaper, battery should be better, should have micro SD card slot, better camera, better hardware, better software…anything else?

I wonder why you’re asking for better everything and yet you aren’t willing to pay a higher price for better everything…

You forgot water/dust proof too. If you read my last comment in response to Kronicle you would realise that one of the features I couldn’t care about it’s my Micro SD and the features I talked about are practically standard in most 2015 flagships except iphones. I listed them because that would make Samsung more appealing to customers which it desperately needs right now to increase profits not because I necessarily need them but other people do. I don’t care much about water/dust proof either but it would be a welcome addiction Samsung shouldn’t have removed once they introduced it… Read more »

First off; all comments are now monitored. So it takes some time before they are approved or not. Which is the reason both your comments appear now. Edge screens have been proven NOT to be a gimmick or all their competitors (like LG and next will be Apple for sure, as their recent patents indicate) wouldn’t be trying to copy them. I say trying, because none have had Touchwiz features until they finally got the Desktop Computing UX features….. Touchwiz and ARM have designed into ARM instruction in chip features. Which includes the fact Touchwiz was built on Enlightenment Desktop… Read more »

“Which includes the fact Touchwiz was built on Enlightenment Desktop Environment….. not Android milk toast halfwit featureless UX for mobiles from the start.” I’m glad to see that Samsung made an effort to improve touchwiz and its look. I have to say that at least the icons looks better than in any model from the Note 4 behind but it still needs to improve. Why couldn’t it be more customizable so you can change the size of the icons and add more effects when changing widgets? I use Go launcher Z as my main skin because as much as I… Read more »

Get a clue not only are phones getting smaller and thinner, along with being more energy efficient and lighter weight, but they are lasting longer. Which means like Samsung is estimating OEM batteries in it’s new phones will go 1.5 to 2 yrs before needing to be replaced. The integrated fast charging circuitry with greater safety protection and not requiring a thick plastic case makes them cheaper too. Estimated cost is far less than half that of batteries replaced by Geniuses in Apple Stores in iPhones. The estimate is between $35 and $55 done by shops. Do it yourself and… Read more »

“Get a clue not only are phones getting smaller”…… , REALLY? As far as I can see 5.0/5.1 inch screen has become the standard for practically most manufacturers since 2014 ……… “thinner” YES, indeed but soooooo unnecessary. The vast majority of people would prefer slightly thicker phones with better battery life, even most “expert reviewers” that once praised the thinness of phones are now saying that this thinness trend in detriment of battery life is going too far. ………”along with being more energy efficient and lighter weight, but they are lasting longer” …….. hmmmmmm very questionable. Practically most phones released… Read more »

The edge variant whether it’s a gimmick or not proved to be far more popular than the vanilla variant and I actually think that’s the only variant Sammy should have released this year. I also think that releasing an s7 edge and edge + is a good idea as long as Samsung realises that a more flexible price for both it’s also a must and should stop that price war with apple because it’s affecting Samsung far more than Apple. One feature Samsung shouldn’t waste time and resources on it’s the so call “cleartouch” to compete with apple’s 3D touch… Read more »

It’s hard not to wonder if Samsung’s resources are being stretched too thin across too many models. I think product consolidation and brand simplification would help the company. Three devices tops: 1 Galaxy S, 1 Edge, and 1 Note. So, at the very least, eliminate the Edge or the Edge+. I’m still not sold on the Edge as a concept. It would be interesting to get consumer feedback after 6-12 months of ownership to see if the novelty wore off or if they would buy the device again. Samsung has yet to demonstrate compelling utility for the curved screen. If… Read more »

I think you are right. Even if I hate to say it, but Apple does a much better job with their phones. As a brand its crucial to have a good product transparancy. I think 3 high-end flaggships per year is enough. So they can release an “S” per year with a “Plus” Option and then have a year later the Note, which is a small upgrade in terms of hardware. But there should be just one type of the phone, not 20 different like the Note 4, wich drove me crazy with the bad update policy.Then for the middle-class… Read more »

I think one phone would sell more than the other and there would be an over supply of either one

I’m not so sure that the answer to stagnant sales in a mature and ultracompetitive market is to release even more models even faster, but I’m sure Samsung know what they’re doing…

Waste of time and resources imo, they should focus on 1 and make it awesome .. not split the dev team to make one better than other or split resources between the two versions to make both “sell” well … I don’t see their logic anywhere if the rumor goes live 🙂
