    Galaxy S7 edge 'to have curves at top and bottom'

    SAMSUNG is said to be pushing the envelope in curved displays for the Galaxy S7.

    According to, the South Korean handset maker will be releasing two models of the Galaxy S7 - the standard model and the curved variant - early next year.

    The curved variant, referred as the Galaxy S7 edge, is alleged to sport a 5.7-inch display which curves at the top and bottom. In addition, Samsung is considering bringing back the microSD memory card slot to the Galaxy S series next year.

    Going by this year's Galaxy S6 edge, the curved edges on both sides of the phone offer little functionality in exchange for aesthetics and a "cool" factor. We wonder if having a display curved at the top and bottom is any more practical.

    One thing is for sure - we certainly want the microSD memory card to be included in the next flagship smartphone from Samsung.

    The Galaxy Unpacked 2016 event is rumoured to take place on Feb 21, where Samsung is said to announce its Galaxy S7 models. Rumours suggest that the Galaxy S7 could sport the same image sensor as that of the Sony Xperia Z5 and have a pressure-sensitive display like that of the Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
