Samsung Unveils Curved Screen Smartphone

Just after Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 3, at the event Samsung executives said that the company plans to “introduce a curved display smartphone in October,” but declined to give any
further details — including price, exact release date, or even what operating system it would be using. Samsung has technically released curved-screen phones before — the Nexus S had a gentle curve on it, but in that case it was the glass, not the screen itself that was curved.
Curved displays are an early stage in screen evolution which is shifting to bendable or foldable designs, eventually allowing mobile and wearable gadgets to take on new forms that could radically change the high-end smartphone market.
“We plan to introduce a smartphone with a curved display in South Korea in October,” Samsung’s mobile business head of strategic marketing DJ Lee said on Wednesday at an event launching the Galaxy Note 3 smartphone in Seoul.
In January Samsung, which has taken over from Apple as the global smartphone leader, showed off prototype products with a flexible screen and a display that extends from the side of a device.
We just have to fold our arms and wait for what I call greatness.
