Samsung to unveil its first smartphone with a curved display next month

Samsung Curved Display

Samsung proved earlier this year that curved displays are feasible, and the next step will be making use of new curved designs in smartphone. Reuters reports that Samsung has confirmed plans to introduce a smartphone with a curved display in South Korea sometime next month. The South Korean electronics company has already revealed prototypes with flexible screens and curved glass, but this is the first confirmation of a product announcement from Samsung. Of course, if Samsung’s pricey curved OLED HDTV is any indication, producing these displays is still a very expensive process. Curved and flexible displays could be a fascinating proposition for portable electronics, but the technology will have to be affordable first before it can be widely adopted.
