According to South Korea's Electronic Times Samsung is planning to launch two different versions of its new Hero flagship smartphone: a 5.2-inch flat-screen version, and a 5.5-inch, curved-screen version that will be called the 'Galaxy S7 edge'.
Samsung plans to initially make 3.3 million of the flat-screen devices and around 1.6 million of the curved-screen version, the report said, with plans to launch the handset in February. This approach is similar to that of Apple’s approach when it released iPhone 6 in 4.7-inch (iPhone 6) and 5.5-inch (iPhone 6 Plus) last year.
Samsung Electronics plans to flog 400 million phones in 2016. Its number of target is similar or bit smaller than this year. Industries are focusing on whether or not Samsung Electronics can break through Smartphone markets where they are saturated and which is why the Galaxy S7 is so important.
Hero goes to mass-production from February of 2016 and its release date will be soon after.
