Samsung Galaxy Note 4: The First With A Flexible, 3-sided Youm Display?

Leave it to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to make people fall in love with smartphones with flexible displays, right?

Flexible display tech is the rage now-a-days, along with wearable devices. However, if on the wearable side things are looking great, with Android Wear devices on their way and with Samsung and other smaller manufacturers testing waters with various concepts, many were left disappointed disappointed when the first smartphones featuring a flexible display have been released, towards the end of 2013. However, according to the latest, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will try to change people’s perception regarding flexible displays. Join us after the break for the whole story.


According to the Korean media, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be the first smartphone to feature Samsung’s already famous “Youm” flexible display. Yes, we know you thought that the Galaxy Round was using this kind of display. May were fooled, but in fact, Samsung never mentioned this term when talking, promoting or even documenting the Galaxy Round. Even more, some are considering that Galaxy Round’s display is a “normal” one, curved into a fixed position.

However, getting back to the subject at hand, aside from the fact that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will use the company’s Youm flexible display, the same publication, citing industry insiders, says that the screen will be three sided. Wait! What?

The term “three-sided” display is used to suggest that various notifications, messages and what not, will be readable at an angle. For those of you who might not remember, Samsung actually demoed this kind of device in the past.

All the above info comes shortly after a Samsung representative confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will feature a “new form factor“.

So, what do you think? Will the Galaxy Note 4, assuming it will come with such a display, be able to bring flexible displays into the mainstream? Has Samsung learned something from the Galaxy Round experiment? Let us know in the comments section.
