Samsung’s Galaxy S11+ is generating a lot of interest as you would expect from the next Samsung flagship smartphone due for an official reveal early next year. Well known Samsung insider @universice is back at it again, this time confirming what he expects will be a substantially reshaped front display to help set the device apart from the competition.

Despite releasing some top-notch smartphone hardware in 2019, Samsung has been facing declining sales of its high-end smartphones at the hands of the Chinese competition including Huawei, OnePlus and Oppo among others. With many of them taking a me-too approach emulating Samsung’s design language and feature sets for less, the Korean giant knows it needs to come up with something to differentiate itself from the competition.

Although we’ve already seen some purported renders of the Galaxy S11+ that looks like a refined hybrid of the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 handsets from the often reliable tipster @onleaks, Samsung insider @iceuniverse has said these renders aren’t accurate. Instead, @iceuniverse posted a couple of shots of a new screen protector that it says is an accurate match for what he expects to see from the Galaxy S11+ display. Instead of just rounded front edges on the side of the display, @universeice expects Samsung to round off the edge corners of the display too.

This rounded off approach would help to give the Galaxy S11+ the impression of having an edgeless display from both the sides and from the top. It will be a signature look that Samsung will aim to market heavily, particularly as arch-rival Apple will likely continue with a dated notched approach (albeit smaller) with the iPhone 12. Samsung’s approach is also likely to more practical than the waterfall displays we have seen recently in the form of the Vivo Nex 3. Accidental screen touches are far less likely while keeping the display adequately protected by a case is also a better bet with the approach Samsung is taking.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
