Xiaomi Arch tops Samsung Galaxy Note Edge with two curved edges?
posted by Alan F. / Dec 27, 2014, 10:43 AM
The information found on the edges will include notifications and controls. And Xiaomi can also use one side to stream live information such as stock prices and sports scores. The poster says that the Arch is the world's first phone with a dual curved screen.
If you're dying to purchase the Arch, keep in mind that this would seem to be nothing more than a concept for Xiaomi at this point. With the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge priced at a premium, the Xiaomi Arch would seem to go against the manufacturer's low-priced business strategy. In addition, all we have at the moment is a poster. If something more concrete is released, we'd be more than happy to pass it along to you.
Thanks for the tip!
How am I supposed to hold it?

I tried Samsung Edge in the show room and don't like it. There no problem holding it as there still holding space at the end of the Edge. However the advantage is your eyes would not see them. Edge would make sense for people that uses flip cover because there an exposed edge displaying incoming message and notification. I only use Book Cover for my tablet to double up as stand. Phone I prefer bumper type of case. XiaoMi arch is attractive to me, I might get it when its available locally to try for real.

Well, when touch screen was introduced, the question was the same in essence - who in sane mind will use large, breakable screen device, how would you even carry it. Just few years are passed and those screens are considered for children phones and feature phones are allready hard to find. So I would say, only time will tell, like in most cases.

I wish Xiami gets banned for forever so atleast this company knows why not to steal others ideas and what R & D means. If this turns out to be true, It will be pathetic nothing else.

This might make handling a big trouble, unless they have added some touch blocking functionality atleast on one of the sides. But still happy for xiaomi for trying this atleast. It makes the phone almost bezel-less from d sides!! Its a gud idea indeed coz u donno in which direction ur phone lies infront of you and in either directions you can see d notifications(i suppose).

What. The. I. Can't. Even. Xiaomi can mass-produce display like this already? Damn, Samsung really needs to step their game up much much higher! These hungry Chinese brands would really slaughter anybody.

hey phljcnth, it's one thing to fulfill a demand for 10,000, it's another to fill the demand of the world - there's more than just producing one concept and start building these things when it comes to shipping arrangements, manufacturing in millions, advertising, warranty service and etc... it takes longer to put all that together when your customer base is in tens of millions and that goes for Samsung (not just Apple).

People are so dumb, these curved screens won't go mainstream for the next 12 months. Samsung expect to produce 30k to 40k monthly before the end of 2015. http://www.zdnet.com/article/s
