According to Choo Dae-young, analyst in charge of electronics industry, Korea Institute for Industrial Economics & Trade “There appears to be no high demand for dual-edge screens because some still find them inconvenient because they mistakenly touch the sides of the smartphones. The utility of a bezel-less display does not seem that much higher for small, portable smartphones compared to televisions.”
Peter Lee, from NH Investment & Securities also went on to say the Samsung should bring the foldable screen devices to the market.
Initially there were reports that Samsung was also working on a foldable screen display device with bendable screen, which could be showcased at the CES (Consumer Electronic Show) 2017. There are rumours that the display might include an “in-foldable” model or an “out-foldable” model.
Keeping all the rumours to rest, we will have to wait till Samsung officially launches the phones. The Galaxy S8 is expected to launch on February 26th in Barcelona, which will be a day before the official opening of MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2017.
