Samsung has reportedly begun testing three-sided display phone
The electronics giant has begun testing of a new screen, likely to be unveiled this year, according to a Korean supplier of Samsung parts.
If you thought the Samsung Galaxy Round was peculiar, get ready for another whole level of quirk. According to a Korean supplier of Samsung parts, the company has begun testing three-sided displays for potential application on mobile devices.
A three-sided display phone just might be what Kim Hyeon Jun, executive manager at Samsung's Wireless Business Division, had been foreshadowing during Samsung's second-quarter earnings conference call.
"While I cannot mention specifics, we are planning on unveiling an innovative large-screen flagship model, an attractive phone that takes advantage of cutting-edge materials," he said.
Large-scale production, however, may be further down the line. The three-sided screen will utilize a plastic substrate that is reportedly limited in quantity and difficult to work with. If released by the end of this year, it will most likely be limited to Korean audiences.
