In this article we’ll be discussing some topics surrounding the Galaxy S8 display. Will the Galaxy S8 have a curved display like the Galaxy S8 Edge? Will the S8 have a 4K display? Find out more in this article.
The first rumor to hit the internet surrounding the Galaxy S8 display is that Samsung may forego the traditional S8 and release two Galaxy S8 Edge variants instead. The Edge range has been adopted well and it may be in Samsung’s interest to phase out their standard flagship non-Edge range.
However, if the Galaxy S8 did not come with a standard display, we’d expect Samsung to make some compromises. Firstly, Samsung will most likely release another high end smartphone outside of the flagship lineup that will have a standard display. If Samsung do not do this, then we’d be surprised to see a lack of a standard display on the Galaxy S8 unless Samsung dropped the price of the Galaxy S8 Edge.

If this happens, Samsung might alter their lineup and release the Galaxy S8 Edge and the Galaxy S8 Edge Plus alongside each other. This would mean the Galaxy S8 Edge would replace the standard variant and would sell at the same price point as previous standard devices, such as the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S6. The Galaxy S8 Edge Plus would replace the Galaxy S8 Edge spot and would sell for the same amount at launch that the Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S6 Edge were sold for.
Another rumor has been circulating about the Galaxy S8 display resolution. Whilst some may suggest that the Galaxy S8 will have a 4K display, we expect this feature will be left out for the extreme high end of handsets in 2017. For this reason, we expect that the standard Galaxy S8 will have a 2K resolution display. It may be possible that the more expensive Galaxy S8 variant will include a 4K display, especially if Samsung include an Edge display on both variants.
Whichever route Samsung chooses, we doubt Samsung fans will have to worry about price hikes for either of the two flagship Galaxy S8 variants.
