According to the reports, world third largest smartphone distributor Xiaomi said to be working on dual-edge display, named as Xiaomi Arch. This device is similar to the South-Korean giant's Samsung latest release Galaxy Note Edge, which has a edged display on the right side of the device.
According to GizmoChina on Saturday, a purported poster of the as-yet-unannounced Xiaomi Arch was spotted that called it the world's first phone with dual-edge display or dual-curved screen. However, the report doesn't reveal the source of the poster.
The edge display is set to show active notifications as well as shortcut menus. Even GizmoChina seems to doubt the authenticity of its image there's no guarantee the Xiaomi Arch is a real device or will ever see the light.
