The rumors have been circulating about the two new Galaxy smartphones, and it has already been said that the new S8 will come with pressure sensitive display. However, latest rumors indicate that the new gadgets – Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 – will feature new flexible displays and that the two flagships will not be so similar in design like before.
The South Korean tech giant is rumored to be using a so-called “two-track” strategy, and one of their new flagship phones will have a ‘dual-screen.’ This means that one screen will be on the front and the other one on the back of the device, whereas the other smartphone will come with a foldable OLED display. Samsung will test the market first with a small number of devices with dual-screen, after which they are going to introduce foldable smartphones.
This company did something similar in past when the Galaxy Round with a curved display was launched in 2013, and the Galaxy Note Edge with an edge display went on sale a year after that. Samsung has planned to manufacture a foldable display for a while now, and three years ago they posted a video with an “in-foldable” smartphone. This means that the panel can be folded inwards, but they want to produce “out-foldable” device in which OLED panels are placed on the sides allowing the front and the back to be folded.
“In-foldable smartphone is seen as the first type of a foldable smartphone. Out-foldable smartphone is the next step of in-foldable smartphone,” as Korean ETnews reported. The new dual-screen and foldable Galaxy S8 and Note 8 will go on sale in 2017. We can’t miss mentioning problems we saw during the last few months and express our hopes that this time everything will go as planned with both devices and that this company will not suffer from further problems like with Note 7 device.
