Samsung was the manufacturer responsible for popularizing the curved screens on the sides of its high-end smartphones. However, the strategy appears to be about to change slightly.
According to screen analyst Ross Young, the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 Plus will have flat screens. That is, only the Galaxy S21 Ultra will have a curved screen on the side margins. The measure promises to divide opinions.
This statement came in response to a tweet of the reputed leaker Ice Universe. It reads: “I firmly believe that the S21 and S21 + will have flat screens. They are already in production. If they change screens now, the S21 will be postponed at least until the end of February. This is impossible”.
This means that whoever wants a curved screen on the new Galaxy S21 will have to choose the Ultra model. And that means that these users have to pay higher prices for the equipment.
For their part, those who prefer flat screens will have a good option in this line. The S21 and S21 + will be cheaper models and with one or another cut in specifications, but those who prefer flat screens are left with good alternatives.
Apple is practically the only case of a manufacturer that never gave in to the curved screens on the sides, against a trend that has been installed in several Android manufacturers. And for the happiness of some and the sadness of others, this step by Samsung may start to mean a return in this practice. We will see how the market reacts to these design changes.
