The Samsung’s mobile business head of strategic marketing D.J. Lee said:
“We plan to introduce a smartphone with a curved display in South Korea in October”, so we will hear some exciting news from Samsung very soon. And actually, previously released Nexus S has a tiny curve on its screen already, but that’s the curve of the top screen glass and not a curved display.
Recently, the Korean company applied for a smartphone patent where device is curved along its vertical axis. But, we assume that this soon-to-be-released smartphone will offer more than both the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus had.
In January this year Samsung Electronics presented a video with prototype smartphone, which has a flexible OLED screen and an extendable display from the side of a device. Also, early this year Samsung together with its closest competitor LG Electronics started to sell an extremely expensive (around $9000 for the TV set) TVs with curved OLED screens, so technology is already exists.
