Samsung wants a trademark for “Galaxy Note Edge”, probably a variation of the upcoming Galaxy Note 4
There will be quite a lot of news regarding Samsung's upcoming devices in the following month or so – apart from the Galaxy Note 4, the giant is also poised to release the metal-clad Galaxy Alpha at any moment (or it might postpone the announcement until the end of September). A slew of other devices, such as the rumored standalone Gear Solo smartwatch, will most probably be announced at IFa 2014 as well.

It is more than sure that Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 4 on September 3 at this year's IFA, and one of the major rumors about the device was that it will come with a flexible, probably three-sided YOUM display. These rumors are somewhat contradicting with the latest leaked images of the Galaxy Note 4, which show a more regular device. Could this mean that Samsung will keep this special display for another Galaxy Note device? Well, one of the company's latest trademark applications describes that it intends to patent the “Galaxy Note Edge” moniker. 

There's always the possibility that the company won't release such a device at all, but we suspect that a device named the Galaxy Note Edge might turn out to be a Galaxy Note 4 version with such a three-sided, edge-to-edge display. As we know, Samsung likes to showcase its extravagant display achievements by putting them in separate niche devices - the curvy Samsung Galaxy Round is the proof.

Can anyone enlighten me how three sided display is actually useful? I don't see it.

1.more screen estate cause it eliminates the sides 2. Bendable screens are supposively stronger 3.you can have notifications on the curved sides instead of the top

More choice for the consumer (that's you by the way) can only be a good thing! Even (izombie) apple are going to give you two choices now, you lucky bunnies, innovation!..

To each their own; I think Nokia's fabula designs are the absolute cream of the crop!
