If there is one thing Samsung has over its competitors, it would be their Edge smartphones. Ever since the introduction of the Galaxy Note Edge in 2014, Samsung has been introducing handsets with curved side displays, with the latest being the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. However it seems that Samsung wants to start spreading its display tech to other OEMs.
According to a report from ET News (via The Droid Guy), it has been suggested that Samsung is apparently in talks with various Chinese OEMs about using their Edge displays in future smartphones. These OEMs in question are that of Huawei, Xiaomi, and Vivo. Now Xiaomi has since announced its flagship Xiaomi Mi 5, so if the reports are true, it will probably be for future devices.
Huawei’s upcoming flagship the Huawei P9 also does not appear to sport the curved displays, according to the leaked photos, which means that just like Xiaomi, curved displays will probably be for future handsets. However Vivo is said to be utilizing the curved display in their upcoming Vivo Xplay 5, based on recently leaked photos.
Of course whether or not Vivo’s application of the curved display will end up being as functional as Samsung’s Edge handsets remains to be seen, but what do you guys think? Would you like to see more curved displays in the future?
