Recently Samsung claimed that they are working on a smartphone which has a curved display Named as Samsung Youm. But it wont be launched all over the world. First it will be released in South Korea to see the reaction of general people about the curved screen then they will look forward about continuing its production.
During CES 2013 tech, the Korean phone maker announced a smartphone with a 5.5-inch flexible display,which was named as Samsung Youm.
According to Samsung Representative the Samsung Youm will use OLED Touch screen. It will be flexible but not completely Flexible. The Screen will be curved inside the handset’s case which will be hard just like the one of any other similar device.
The benefits of the Youm Screen includes the fact of being unbreakable they are very light and thin as comapred to the conventional glass screen that are being used in other smartphones, the curve also increase the surface area making room for the components like battery and other internal components.
There is a rumour that these curved display smartphones will be a limited addition of Galaxy Note 3.
Samsung Youm Specs And Features:
According to the Rumours the first curved device by Samsung will be an upgrade for the Galaxy Note 3 phablet. keeping in mind that the current Galaxy Note 3 has a 5.7-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display Screen,with a 13 MP front camera which supports 4K video recording,its the first smartphone with 3 GB of RAM, 32/64 GB of internal storage with the capability of external storage through microSD,Other Features include LTE, NFC, IR blaster, microUSB 3.0, and all standards of WiFi.
Currently there are two variants of Note 3, First one is I9005, it is based on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC processor which is a quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 CPU with Adreno 330 GPU and the other one is I9000 which has eight-core Exynos 5 Octa (quad-core 1.9 GHz Cortex A15 + quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex A7 and Mali T628 GPU.
