LG reportedly working on a new smartphone with curved screen (different from the G Flex line)
Shortly after we heard that there might not be any new LG G Flex smartphone next year, we're now hearing that LG is still working on a new handset with a curved screen, though this is expected to be quite different from the G Flex and G Flex 2 (which are currently the only LG-made smartphones to offer curved displays).

According to Evan Blass, aka @evleaks, the new handset that LG is working on should have a curved display that "wraps over the top of the device." At the moment, there are no other details about this alleged upcoming smartphone, but it looks like it's going to be an asymmetrical one - kind of resembling the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, with the difference that the curved edge will be on the top, not on the right side. The term "wraps around" suggests that the curved screen might go all the way from the front to the back of the device. This, however, is just an assumption.

As smartphone design evolution has somehow plateaued in the last years, consumers seem to be genuinely interested in curved screens - for the new designs that they enable, if not for the extra functionality that they bring.

We're certainly looking forward to seeing what this new LG smartphone has to offer (assuming it will indeed be released). What about you?
