Curved screens not weird enough for you? Samsung plans a three-sided phone display

Leave it to Samsung to once again make us say “huh?” when it comes to new smartphone screen technology.

The Korean electronics giant is reportedly developing a three-sided smartphone screen — so it will cover the front and two sides of a phone — according to a Bloomberg report.

A source tells the news agency that Samsung is working on adapting its “Youm” technology, which is used in its curved Galaxy Round phone, to display messages on the side displays. So, for example, the phone could display incoming notifications on the sides, or the title of the song it’s playing, without needed to wake up the display.
