“We plan to introduce a smartphone with a curved display in South Korea in October,” – D.J Lee

Back in CES in January, Samsung revealed some of early prototypes of devices packed with curved display technology, and one of them was 5.5-inch smartphone with codename “Youm”. The prototype’s screen stretched to the outer edges of the device and was able to display notifications along the side, although the handheld itself wasn’t flexible – yet.
