Samsung to offer phone with wraparound display next year?
posted by Alan F. / Nov 15, 2013, 12:44 PM
According to a published report on Friday, Samsung will be releasing a Galaxy model that will employ the wraparound screen, sometime in the second half of next year. The report cited two insiders who are familiar with Samsung's plans. The screen will wraparound both the left and right side of the handset and will use an updated version of the YOUM technology used by the Korean manufacturer to produce the curved screen on its recently released Samsung Galaxy Round.
According to the sources, the wraparound screen might end up in the next Samsung Galaxy S handset or Galaxy Note phablet or could be part of a new line altogether.

They're building/adding a feature that hasn't been on any other device (that I've seen) yet...so yeah, I guess they can't find anyone to copy. But how is this hitting a brick wall? Let's all be honest, Apple seems to have been hitting a brick wall for the past few (2-3?) years.

Lets be truly honest - the only one copying these days is Apple. IOS 7 is pure Android and WP.

I guess it'd be cool for getting notifications on the edge while laying on your desk. Otherwise, not sure what the pros would be for the extra screen space on the side.

This is a counter to Apple's idea of using a wrap around screen. I believe the S5 will not employee this technology. I believe the Note 4 will.

How do you put a case on this type of phone? Some of us like to protect our phones, at least through the contract duration. Maybe the display isn't as fragile as it looks, but people still drop their phones and glass still breaks.
