Last month, it was reported that Samsung would announce a brand new device with a curved display during the month of October, and according to a recent statement from Samsung’s CEO during a Q3 financial call, the device could be announced as soon as next week. Further speculation points to the idea that it could be an extremely limited curved-display Galaxy Note 3 (review here). This has yet to be confirmed by Samsung, but if that is the case and you thought the Note 3 was already too awkward to hold, imagine it with a curved display.
In addition to what Samsung is working on, it appears that LG isn’t too far behind in the curved display arms race. In a recent tease to ZDNet, LG states that an upcoming device, either named LG Z or Z1 (sorry, Sony), will feature a concave curved display. This device is apparently already in production, with a launch taking place sometime this month.
While the idea of a curved display might be awesome, keep in mind that the entire device or its display will more than likely not be “flexible.” Internal components and circuit boards still have a ways to go before you can start folding our smartphones into our back pockets. Although, the curved displays will allow for thinner bezels and a design that is apparently “unbreakable.”
Should we get excited for a Galaxy Note 3 with curved glass?
