Samsung Galaxy S23: Samsung has not even officially announced the Galaxy S22 models in stores, but we already have the first unofficial information about the S23. After three years, we see a new direction for Samsung mobile devices in 2023 with unchanged design with curved screens on all sides.
Samsung Galaxy S23 could bring a design change
The idea of a curved screen phone on all sides is not new. Even Huawei, Honor, and even Xiaomi brought such phones to the public’s attention. All the smartphone companies have returned to more traditional designs lately.
Samsung test the integration of a curved screen on all sides next year and there are already reports that there is production capacity for such an OLED panel display. According to Ice Universe, the Samsung company can mass-produce such screens. Already, given that Samsung kept only slightly curved screens on the Ultra and switched to straight screens on standard and plus models, it is likely that the quad-curved screen will only be integrated on the Ultra model.
The Galaxy S23 could have a curved screen on all sides
As a reminder, smartphones in the Galaxy S22 line will feature a Dynamic AMOLED 2x display from 6.1 to 6.7 inches, with FHD+ or Quad HD+ resolution, depending on the model. The slab will be covered by a glass Gorilla Glass Victus. The Galaxy S22 will sport a straight bezel, while larger versions will feature a screen with curved edges.
According to Ice Universe, Samsung Display is working on screens with curved edges on all four sides, similar to that of the Huawei P40 Pro. According to the predictions, the future smartphones of the Galaxy S23 series will be the first beneficiaries. In the meantime, Samsung has kept only slightly curved screens in the Ultra and switched to straight screens in the Standard and Plus models, assuming the quad-curved screen will only be integrated into the Ultra model.
Given that the Ultra models start at 1,200 euros, the increase in the risk of losing it in use does not sound very attractive. However, this design decision could be Samsung’s chance to stand out in a market whose top devices have started to become more and more similar visually.
