It might be a Galaxy S4 with a slightly curved oled screen.
It may also be a Galaxy Note 3 with curved 3d oled & active shutter 3d glasses.

all apple fanboys disregard the 99% Kernel Mode of IOS to prevent them from doing stupid things as well as customize the phone to their needs as well as to keep everything in control by Kernel Programmers (read Apple), and then buy an android and kernel mode and user mode both coexist and kernel has more things to do than prevent their ignorance and they say it lags..

Curved displays breaks too and just easily. Nothing new here. And Tizen is a laggy and ugly OS with everything copied from Android. Don't buy Samsung phones ever if you want a phone that will last you at least two years. All the 3 Samsung phones i had stopped working like IC short circuit while charging, restarting problem and dead after a fall.

just because the screen is curved doesn't mean it's unbreakable.
And I don't think a curved screen would help smartphones develop at all. TV's maybe, but smartphones no.
I would love to have a 50" curved TV screen at home, but what good would it do me even on bigger smartphone screen (6")???

interesting innovation! But curved display for what? I also have difficult to figure out the purpose of that.

seem more like a marketing strategy than for make sense of the use of technology to get samsung fanboys to purchase

This is call innovative idea !

A display whose curvature allows it to wrap around the side edges of a phone, either top and bottom or both sides would afford its user the ability to quickly view one to two line status updates when holding the phone at an angle.

This could include Twitter, Facebook, email subject headers or even caller id names. There is potential value in this feature.

While not a must have feature, this would be very nice to have. It would also be unique for a certain time period.

I look forward to it.
