Upcoming Galaxy A handsets could come with curved displays

As per a new report coming out of South Korea, Samsung could be looking to expand its curved display flagship lineup to the Galaxy A series as well. We have recently heard about the Galaxy A7 (2017), which will probably feature a standard flat screen display. This venture could be official sometime next year as Samsung pushes to get the Galaxy A lineup into the mainstream fold.

The Galaxy A lineup is pretty diverse and includes budget offerings like the Galaxy A3, and slightly advanced models like the Galaxy A5, the A7 and the A9. There’s no confirmation from Samsung on this matter, so we suggest you take this report with a heavy dosage of salt. The upcoming Galaxy S8 is also expected to include a dual curved-edge display, so there’s plenty to look forward to for Samsung fans next year.

Although Samsung is currently leading the pack in several countries like the U.S. and China, its market share is slowly shrinking due to the rise of several manufacturers in Asia. The likes of Huawei, Oppo etc are breathing down Samsung’s necks in China, which means that the only way to remain competitive is to come up with low-priced mid-tier handsets with unique and attractive hardware specifications underneath.

Love the curved screens! They are the future. Look and handle so much better than the flat screens.

Unless you want to actually use it… the edges look horrendous with icons and the works. Spare displays aren’t in stock either, so when it breaks, Samsung forces you to buy a new phone or pay € 60,- ‘investigation’ costs for the repair.

Totally disagree with curved screens on mid range phones. I’ve spent a huge amount of money for a curved screen and one-two years later (depends on the release) people will get curved displays with the half amount of money that we spent to get a flagship device. If this rumor comes true, the S line will lose it’s fame and Samsung will lose sales and market share. I believe that the reason for all these hundreds of devices is due to their asian culture. In the east world people want as many of overything as hell. This is why Samsung… Read more »

If Samsung puts Curved display even in their mid-range device then s7edge will be my last Samsung phone…
Because it’s the curved screen which differentiates s7edge from other Samsung phones…Without curved screen people can’t even differentiate between basic Samsung phone and flagship Samsung phone…(As now A series also uses glass…Thank God it’s not curved on back like s7)
So it’s my request to Samsung that please use curved display only for your Flagship phones until you bring more innovative display ideas for flagship devices….

It’s not the only way to remain competitive. Samsung could stop screwing its customers every which way, reduce the number of devices they produce and the ranges they have too and start providing its customers with absolute top end quality devices with a reasonable cost based on the tier e.g. low, mid or high end and provide fast, consistent and timely updates to the phones they sell. Currently, they neglect many of their markets by not delivering what they said they would or ignoring them completely. Their updates come through far too slowly, when they do come through there is… Read more »

You are absolutely right from top to bottom. Too many unnecessary and similar phones released every year. There is no consistency in Samsung’s strategy and somethings don’t make sense. Why do you release 4-5 variants of the A, C, On and even S series and not do the same for the Note series? Let’s say one with curved display and all the so called “premium” look and feel and another with flat screen, removable battery, IR blaster, etc; in a nutshell Note 4 hardware with Note 7 software and IP 67 like S5 for those who don’t care about the… Read more »

Well they do a lot of of research with their constumers, I’m part of a panel on SAMSUNG SMartLab+. They do all kinds of research with their costumers. If forms of surveys and such.

I think this thing will grow bigger and bigger and than we will see progress from that.

They do ask their costumers, the only thing 9 out of 10 times it is in their Home country….

Cheers,

Martin

That’s what I was trying to say. They don’t listen to everyone, they just hear what they want to hear and ignore everyone else. I don’t really care for external storage, so in my case I require a phone with 128GB of internal storage. For a top tier phone that should be available no problem, but the Galaxy S7/Edge in the UK is ONLY available in 32GB. This is true for quite a few countries around the world as well… Why are only a few countries worthy of 64GB in the case of the S7? Apple releases all models to… Read more »
