According to Bloomberg, Samsung plan to release a handset that features a wraparound display at some point in 2014. The report says that the point of this three-sided display design is to allow users to read whatever is on the screen even when the device is viewed at an extreme angle.

Samsung has certainly led the way in curved display design, especially with its new Galaxy Round. It is not clear whether Samsung plan to incorporate this wraparound design into the future Galaxy S or Note smartphone, or whether the company will decide to go for a completely new model in order to showcase the technology.

The wraparound display will use the same Youm panels as the Galaxy Round

 

According to Bloomberg there is no definite release date but it is thought the product launch is likely to be sometime in the second half of next year.

Reports say that the new design is based on the Youm panels, which were also used in the Galaxy Round released last month.
