A promo video recently surfaced online that showed Samsung’s vision of the future and how we’ll all be living in a “Display Centric World.” The Galaxy Round was Samsung’s first attempt at a smartphone with a curved display, which is one step closer to a flexible and bendable device.
According to a report by Bloomberg, which also revealed a possible release date for the Galaxy S5, Samsung is also prepping to announce the fourth generation of the Galaxy Note. Apparently Samsung is considering to fully occupy the real estate, not by making the display larger, but extending it to the sides and “may use a three-sided display so messages can be read from an angle.” No other details are known. Samsung exec Lee-Young Hee said, “We are targeting consumers who want more professional use and tend to be willing to pay more for handsets.”
The announcement will reportedly happen after Mobile World Congress in February with a launch target to “the high-end segment” is scheduled sometime in the second half of 2014.
