Samsung Teases New Curved Phone

If Samsung’s reveal of a forthcoming smartphone with a curved screen sends shivers down your spine and visions of bendable handsets dancing through your head, you may want to rein in your excitement.

While Samsung (and LG and Nokia and Apple) are all experimenting with kinetic displays that move when you bend them, you should prepare yourself for this phone to feature a contoured display instead.

The difference? A screen whose glass topper has been molded in a subtle stationary arc, rather than one you can wiggle.flexible_phone_2013

There’s very definitely a precedent for curved displays that give your phone face a slight smile. Samsung’s own Galaxy Nexus S had one, and so does the in-development YotaPhone, which uses formed Gorilla Glass 3 as its cover glass material.
