Bloomberg reports that Samsung is working on a Galaxy smartphone that would sport three-sided display that would wrap around the edges of the smartphone. Further, the report quotes two people familiar with the Samsung plans and notes that each side of the display would operate separately and that the alleged wraparound display would work with company's Youm flexible display technology, first used for the curved display on the Galaxy Round.
As per the report, the Samsung's smartphone with wraparound display could be a device in the Galaxy S or Galaxy Note phablet series, or in a new smartphone lineup entirely. The report does not reveal an exact time frame for the release of the alleged Samsung Galaxy phone with wraparound display, but expects the alleged device to be out by the second half of 2014.
Unfortunately, the report did not shed any light on the innards of the alleged Galaxy smartphone with the wraparound display. The alleged Galaxy smartphone with a new display type might be an attempt to gauge consumers' reaction for phones with new form factors, though Samsung's first attempt with new display type, the Galaxy Round has been limited to selective markets only, and not been too popular.
Earlier this month, Samsung at its second analyst meeting in South Korea spilled the beans about its upcoming devices with newer technologies in coming years. Samsung's chief announced that company plans to release devices with folding displays, such as foldable phones - due in 2015.
Samsung also acknowledged room for improvement in its wearable tech device, the Galaxy Gear, and also revealed that the company has not been 100 percent satisfied by the product.
