To everyone who says flexible screens are useless and stupid, you remind of the people who a few years back said stuff like "color screen for a phone? Whats the point in that?" And "camera on the phone? I have my digital camera thank you very much!"
gam30toronto, 07 Aug 2014Samsung is trying too hard to be innovative. Why don't they just copy Apple like the gold phon... moreMaybe when the device is unlocked the AMOLED displays pixels will go black on the sides and the touch panel will be disabled there too, so when the device is unlocked you will only use the flat part of the display. Thats how I imagine it, I don't know how they will do it.
I think it would be a nice feature, but just like the fingerprint sensor you wont use it too often.
For the insecure Apple fans who are saying this is useless because it would crack, the YOUM OLED is unbreakable and thus no layer of protection is required
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2014I want to see drop-tests already :DYeah, it'll be a sight to see. After the device emerges with only minor cosmetic damage and not a crack on the screen (completely dominating all drop tests), people are going to get even more crazy over this thing!
Different kinds of flexibility:
When we talk about flexible OLEDs, it's important to understand what that means exactly. A flexible OLED is based on a flexible substrate which can be either plastic, metal or flexible glass. The plastic and metal panels will be light, thin and very durable - in fact they will be virtually shatter-proof.
Samsung YOUM display is a plastic based AMOLED, which will also be shatterproof. It's also lighter and thinner compared to glass based OLEDs.
YOUM is going to be amazing! Check out the video from Jan 11, 2013. Definitely check out the Samsung hater @ 2:51 who's hating on the awesome prototypes.
Apple fanboys still see the iPhone 6 as the ultimate innovation with its 4.7 inch display. I pity you guys, folded displays are lightning years away from Apple so you won't understand it anyways
AnonD-181609, 07 Aug 2014I wud love to see the new form factor with/in note 4. crossing fingersThis maybe a step too far as all I see it doing is removing the physical side buttons for a touch option.
If this is correct how will the phone work is a flip case?
The are many things I would like to see especially in the dialler, better smart dialling BOTH name and numbers
Also editable fields' in contact!
eg home 1, work 1, work 2 you can change this eg work 1 work 2 could become, office hours, out of office.
This is old school 2009, Symbian
Say you have a store with 10 branches.
Atm you have to create 10 separate entries in your contacts or if you had editable fields one contact, and 10 unique
Also removing the conversion of large sms into mms
If I send a fairly long sms to 3 or 4 people which are free, I end up PAYING for the MMS.
Samsung are aware of the deficiencies from earlier complaints and appears to be giving us much more hoping we will forget

Sushant Sic, 07 Aug 2014Lol... Useless... What the heck we gonna see in that folded display?? Innovation in vain... Hahaha the hate is strong in this one.
I wud love to see the new form factor with/in note 4. crossing fingers
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2014I will buy this one. Looking goodFirst buy released note 3
AnonD-109585, 07 Aug 2014A fool of a smart phone company called Apple Inc. bragged all about their ideas about making i... moreWrong Apple say nothing at all its rumours and the media that say all these storys,,,the only time you hear Apple is at their events..There might not even be an iphone 6 Apple have said nothing..
As for the news as the 3 sided phone is lying on bedside table using voice activation you get a scrolling ticker with info on,,news/time/tweets etc..It will be hard to hold though unless they use big bezel at bottom because holding it will push on touch screen on sides.
to all those saying this is a dumb idea, if apple designs their next iphone like this, then its all "best design ever", "coolest phone", "i love it" comments.
Mel, 07 Aug 2014This is not good phone to release by samsung, you know why? it will be easily to crack the sc... moreThis is a flexible screen which means that it won`t exactly `crack` maybe deform but I doubt it would crack like a conventional screen
I'm all about innovation so am keen to see and try it. Why not. Can't be closed minded about these things. At least the material won't break anyway. Only issue I see is what if I want to put a cover on my phone?. It's no longer 3 sided.
