The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is going to be the first smartphone from the company to pack its YOUM flexible OLED display technology, a new report says. The information comes from Korean media citing insider sources and further elaborates that the display is going to be three-sided.
Three-sided implicates that the display has its left and right sides bent to create additional zones where notifications from messages, email, incoming calls can appear.
In fact, here’s a demo from 2013 where Samsung showcased its 3-sided YOUM display prototype. From 1:35 onwards, the video demonstrates the advantages that such an implementation brings.
Additionally, Reuters reports of a Samsung representative who has confirmed that the company is working on a new form factor. This new form factor could very well be what you just saw in the video above.
Traditionally, Samsung unveils the Galaxy Note smartphones in September at the IFA show in Berlin. We’ll see if the company will keep the tradition alive this year.
