Samsung Has a 3-Sided Smartphone Screen in the Works

Just as everyone seems to be jumping on the curved screen bandwagon, Samsung appears to have decided to take things a step further.

According to a report from Bloomberg, Samsung is working on a Galaxy phone with a three-sided wraparound screen – and if all goes to plan, we’ll see it next year.

The idea is that each side of the display would work independently, with the smaller side screens displaying notifications and other info. Presumably, beyond just being convenient, this will also save some battery as it allows the main display to stay off when notifications come in. This feature will be made possible through an adaptation of Samsung’s recently unveiled Youm technology.

Curved screens, three-sided screens – what’s next? Screens that simultaneously exist and don’t exist?
