According to a new report from Samsung-centric tech blog Sammobile, the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer will launch no less than five flagship smartphones in 2017. Up until a few years ago, Samsung has routinely released two flagship smartphones per year: a new Samsung Galaxy S model in the first part of the year and a new Samsung Galaxy Note model in the second half. However, once Samsung started introducing slightly altered (read: curved-screen versions) versions of its flagships, the number of top-end Samsung smartphones launched each year has gone up considerably. If this new rumor is to be believed, Samsung will launch five flagship smartphones in 2017. In the first half of the year, we’re likely to be introduced to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 edge, a launch schedule that would mimic Samsung’s strategy in the first half of 2016.
