Many rumors and reports have surfaced over the past couple of months suggesting that Samsung is working on a new Galaxy A series. It’s unclear when Samsung plans on launching the Galaxy A (2017) series but a new report claims that the new series will come with curved displays, much like the one you get with the Galaxy S7 Edge.
Introducing dual edge curved displays to mid-range handsets in the Galaxy A series will certainly set them apart from the competition. Samsung does need to provide more value for money with these handsets as it comes under increasing pressure from Chinese OEMs in this particular segment of the market.
Still, it’s unclear which handsets in the series will receive the curved display, considering the fact that the Galaxy A series includes both entry-level and mid-range smartphones. It’s unlikely that a curved display will be added to the entry-level Galaxy A3.
No further information is available about this right now so take this report with a grain of salt until there’s more evidence to support this theory. Samsung hasn’t said anything about expanding curved displays to the Galaxy A series so one can’t really be sure about this right now.
Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy A (2017) series early next year. The handsets are likely going to be launched in select markets across the globe, including but not limited to India and China.
