While we are eagerly waiting for Samsung to launch the larger Galaxy S6 Edge Plus in New York tomorrow, very few must be wondering what Samsung has so far planned about the Galaxy S7 which should launch at Mobile World Congress next year.
Even though the Galaxy S6 models didn't bring in the profits that Samsung had expected, they were still considered as new smartphones that could finally match iPhones spec-to-spec. If the reputation carries on, our expectations from the Galaxy S7 should reach sky-high by March. And the steady flow of rumours has just begun.
We just learnt that Samsung filed a patent late last year for a holographic screen than can project images beyond its surface. Since the concept is new, the images being projected are mere icons rather than movies or pictures. Our money is on a display which will give an impression of apps floating over the home screen. How amazing!
Apart from our guess, the new display may also be used to create 3D images with light through a special case that a smartphone can work with.
Given that it might be too late for the S6 Edge Plus or the Galaxy Note 5 to feature such a display, there is a chance the Galaxy S7 coming up next year could carry it at the time of launch.
If that is the case, Apple will have a lot of catching up to do!
