Samsung has already released Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge flagships. While rumors have been rife that the company is working on at least two variants of Samsung Galaxy Note 6, we seemingly have a green light on what 2017 holds.
Usually, Samsung unveils two flagship models each and every year – Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series. As noted earlier, the 2016 Galaxy S series has already seen the light. As we wait for this year’s Galaxy Note series, reports have emerged that the South Korean company will be unveiling at least five flagship smartphones this coming year.
The ever-reliable and Samsung-centric website Sam Mobile is the source of these claims, but it cites a Weibo post that claims 2017 will see a new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Edge and a fresh variant known as Samsung Galaxy X join the party. Samsung will definitely refresh the current S7 and S7 Edge with new Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Edge. Even though the Galaxy Note 6 is not yet out, we’ll probably see a refreshed version of the same in 2017, probably going by the name of Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
The new members, Samsung Galaxy X and Galaxy Note 7 Edge, are reportedly the next big things from the Korean tech giant, especially the former. The Galaxy X is rumored to be the device that Samsung recently filed a patent for – a device that would be the first from the company to feature a foldable design.
Some reports have recently claimed that Samsung will kill its Note series after the release of Galaxy Note 6. However, what Sam Mobile is telling us is the complete opposite of these reports. Given the proven track record this Samsung-centric site has when it comes to predicting or rather monitoring the company’s moves, it is possible that we might indeed have five Samsung flagships in 2017.
According to Sam Mobile, the rumored Samsung Galaxy X will come with a 4K display screen that features a diamond PenTile subpixel arrangement. As for the rest of the pack, a QHD Super AMOLED unit with 2.5K resolution will be used, however, the panels will come with an RGB subpixel arrangement instead.
Despite the fact that Sam Mobile can be trusted with its revelations, it is still too early to talk about how a device will look like more than a year from now. This means that you shouldn’t be too excited about this report, instead, take it with a pinch of salt.
