Multiple Chinese handsets with dual-edge display coming this year

Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge with dual-edge display will soon be joined by third-party handsets

While it is rumored that Vivo, Xiaomi and Huawei will launch handsets with Samsung's dual-edge display later this year, Vivo already teased the Xplay 5 smartphone with such a screen.

Both Samsung's latest flagships, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, feature an excellent display. Recent tests have shown that the dual-edge display used by these handsets is currently the best one available for handsets, inheriting the crown previously held by the Galaxy Note 5 lineup. Since Samsung has no problems licensing its Exynos chips to various third parties, the fact that handsets using its dual-edge display technology could come out later this year seems very likely.

While rumors coming from various inside sources mentioned that Chinese phone makers Vivo, Xiaomi, and Huawei are working on smartphones with Samsung dual-edge displays and their handsets would come out later this year, it looks like Vivo is the first in line. The upcoming Xplay 5 handset has been in the rumor mill for a while, but now an official teaser posted by the company on Weibo leaves no room for misunderstandings.

Last year, Samsung supplied the dual-edge display that BlackBerry used for the Priv Android handset. Now, they are working hard on increasing their sales and hopefully, these moves will lead to more affordable smartphones with dual-edge displays.
