Samsung Planning Smartphone with Wrap-Around Display
Samsung is rumored to be developing a new device for launch in 2014 with a flexible display that envelops the device’s edges, allowing users to read messages while the device’s main display is at a non-viewable angle. The three-sided display will be manufactured using a new iteration of Samsung’s proprietary Youm OLED displays, according to a new report by Bloomberg. The publication’s sources were quite regarding the release date but inferred that it could hit shelves as soon as the second half of 2014.
The South Korean manufacturer showed off a prototype of such a device during the company’s keynote address at January’s CES trade show in Las Vegas where they introduced the display technology that is said to form the foundation of the new smartphone. Youm is a flexible OLED technology that uses plastic, rather than glass, as a substrate for the display’s transistors. Samsung said the current generation of 5.7-inch Youm panels, which many believe power the company’s recent Korea-only Galaxy Round smartphone, are just 0.12 millimeters thick.
Curved displays seem to be a growing trend in smartphones but it remains to be seen whether the trend is here to stay. So far, the only companies that also have a manufacturing interest in flexible display technology, namely Samsung and LG, have released devices with the feature and even then only in the companies’ home market of South Korea.
The Cupertino California company is said to be exploring devices with curved glass displays but the technology’s real future may be within wearable devices such as Apple’s rumored “iWatch,” which many believe will make use of flexible displays to wrap around users’ wrists.

Samsung and another companies after Apple sue them they learned, they are not stupid anymore and their strategy now is, every time they hear a rumor about something possible coming soon from Apple, they release it first with all possible features and ideas so in case Apple come with something similar they can sue Apple or blocking Apple to come with the next big thing. iWatch and now wrap-around display. Apple, close your mouth.

iPad: self explanatory here, many tablets were around prior to the iPad. Apple did not invent the tablet. Fujitsu actually filed for the iPad name back in 2003. A quick google search of tablet history will give you a timetable of what existed pre-iPad.

Easier to break when it falls from ur hands.

This is plastic, so I don't think it's gonna break that easily.
Also for the record, it was xerox that first came up with this concept in the 70's in their palo alto research facility.Widget-Weather App Now Available! Also with MyLocation Support!

LOL Let me put this Apple curve "first" rumors behind..... Little behold.. Samsung long been had a curve screen phone back in 2012 called Samsung Galaxy S Advance GT-i9070 which wasnt sold in the USA and Samsung has long been trying to make a flexible bendable screens or AMOLED Display as they call it.. if you check youtube and search for "Samsung Flexible AMOLED Display at CES 2011" you can see the prototypes...
Soooo... Yeah... Apple is just trying to fit in with the trend of Samsung and LG, thats a FACT.. Just like they are putting out bigger screens for the next iPhone's as the rumor states.... Apple just recently announced about getting into the curved screen market is because they know they have to keep up with the technology of Mobile phones.
From the Article "So far, the only companies that also have a manufacturing interest in flexible display technology, namely Samsung and LG, have released devices with the feature and even then only in the companies’ home market of South Korea. "
Call me a hater or whatever you please but you cant deny the fact that Samsung been trying to make this move in all area's of entertainment.. not just curved mobile phones but also curved LCD,TV's and others.. Dont believe it... Research for yourself.. enjoy
By the way.. I admit .. Apple finally did something right with the iPhone5S and the security hardware behind it...so Im not against Apple.. Just against uninformed people
