Samsung Releasing 5 Flagship Phones In 2017? 3 Would Suffice
Samsung has already released two flagship phones for this year, and the tech giant has been scheduled to release its Galaxy Note 6 during the month of August, making the grand total come to three flagship phones for 2016. However, Samsung is going to up that number to 5 flagship smartphones for 2017, and if you ask us, that isn’t the most greatest of ideas.
Samsung Rumored To Release A Foldable Display Smartphone That Is Going To Be A Part Of The 5 Flagships
We already know that the South Korean is going to release three flagship phones in 2017; two of them are going to arrive during the same timeline as Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, while the successor to the upcoming Galaxy Note 6 is going to arrive later in the year. However, what about the other two flagships? Where will they find their place in a highly competitive market?
Well, turns out that the company is working on a smartphone with a foldable display, but where the company’s current generation high-end phones feature a 2K display, the handset with the foldable display has been rumored to feature a 4K resolution. We will have to wait and see how that turns out, but a 4K AMOLED display should definitely be off the cards.
Coming to the upcoming Galaxy Note 6, the battery capacity of the phone is expected to be a 4,000mAh cell, which will go along nicely with the 5.8-inch screen. In our previous report, it was stated that the smartphone would be sporting a Snapdragon 823, which is expected to be much more powerful variant of Snapdragon 820. While the manufacturing process between the SoCs is going to remain the same, perhaps the clock speed of the processor could be increased to cater to higher performance, though that will not bode well for the overall battery life.
In addition, the upcoming handset is expected to feature 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM, because there needs to be some level of difference between this one and its smaller brothers. Furthermore, the incorporation of an iris scanner is also said to be a part of the smartphone’s configuration, and why would it not?
Apart from a fingerprint scanner, what better way to secure your device than with an extra security measure, and we know that we might be expecting too much from Samsung, but we are under the impression that the company’s payment service, Samsung Pay could somehow be integrated into the iris scanner, if there ever was such a security feature.
Before we end this discussion, releasing 5 flagships for the year will require more resources, and it only takes Apple to announce two smartphones when they start to rake in heaps of profit, so other companies can also follow the same approach to make this possible. Do you guys think that Samsung should release 5 flagship devices next year? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
