Remember when we thought Samsung would offer two versions of the Galaxy S7? And that Samsung was going to trim down some models to avoid confusion with the Edge and normal variants? Nope, that’d be too simple for Samsung. Buckle up, we’re probably going to see four different variants of the Galaxy S7.
As of right now, there are three different screen sizes for the Galaxy S7. There will be a 5.1-inch, 5.5-inch, and 6-inch version of the device, and there will be varying screen options depending on the size you want. Technically, the report about Samsung not making the smaller device with a curved screen was correct, so the smallest, 5.1-inch phone will only have a flat screen. The medium sized 5.5-inch screen will only be available in a curved variant, but the largest 6-inch device will have both a flat and curved option.
So let’s recap:
- 5.1-inch, non-curved display
- 5.5-inch, curved display
- 6-inch, non-curved display
- 6-inch, curved display
When in doubt, just make as many devices as possible and hope something sticks. Let’s just hope the actual hardware inside each of these phones doesn’t wildly differ depending on what size screen they have. Samsung has been known to do that, only putting the absolute highest-end hardware in their biggest devices, but maybe they’ll accommodate people that want smaller phones this time around.
