Samsung is back in news, and guess what, there are more new leaks and rumors to follow up on that are currently making rounds on the web. The new rumors, however, point toward the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
According to reports, the next Galaxy Note flagship from Samsung -- dubbed Samsung Galaxy Note 4 -- is currently set to be the first smartphone from the company to sport its highly touted YOUM flexible OLED display technology.
The details about the new phone and the kind of display it might arrive with comes from Korean media which has cited insider sources while further elaborating on how the display is going to be a three-sided affair.
But what special advantage does a three-sided display bring to the game or, in fact, how is it different all others in the market? The answer lies on what a three-sided display basically implicates.
GSMArena puts it perfectly, stating that "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."
So basically, the term "three-sided" display is used for suggesting various notifications, messages and others that will be readable when viewed at an angle.
In fact, there's also a demo from 2013 where Samsung showcases its 3-sided YOUM display prototype. And if you watch closely, from 1:35 onwards, the video demonstrates the advantages that such an implementation brings. Check it out below.
As of now, there's no telling as to when Samsung might eventually announce or showcase the new device, but there are hopes that the new Galaxy Note handset will be shown off the upcoming IFA show in Berlin in September.
